Before Jon Snow started humping on his Aunt and prepared to dominate Westeros, he was throwing his leg over a special ginger wilding with a sparkle in her feral eye. Many nerds (myself included) were devastated when Ygritte was offed in season four (wipes tears from eyes). Well, for those of us with our legs straddling both “Game of Thrones” world and – hand quotes – “The Real World,” People.com reports that the taboo love of Jon Snow and Ygritte has transcended to a real life wedding.
Actors Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie were married yesterday at Rayne Church in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Their reception was at the fancy Wardhill Castle, which Rose’s fancy family owns.
Before we get into the wedding details, everyone wants to know if our man Peter Dinklage was there. YES, our boo Peter was there, but Kit and Rose missed out on the opportunity of a lifetime by not having him officiate the wedding. There are a few freaks out there who read Samwell Tarly erotic fan fiction (see you on the boards later, my friends), so I am elated to report that actor John Bradley was in attendance. Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner (rocking some over the knee stripper boots) and Emilia Clarke were all guests, but no confirmation of Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) or Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen). Musician Marcus Mumford and Malin Ackerman were also there.
Rose comes from Scottish nobility. Her mom’s name is Candy (which speaks in itself) and her dad, who wore a traditional kilt, has the fancy title of Aberdeenshire Chieftain of Clan Leslie. According to Variety:
…she was born to a noble family in Scotland and was raised at Lickleyhead Castle, her family’s 15th century ancestral seat.
Lickleyhead Castle is a castle I think we can all get behind, amiright? And I’m just going to fess up and admit that I thought “The Shire” was a made up place for Hobbits to live in “Lord of The Rings.” Please don’t judge me (too harshly).
I imagine that after their honeymoon, Kit and Rose are going to return to (one of) her family’s castles and swim in gold coins like Scrooge McDuck, because Kit isn’t doing too shabby in the finances department himself. Fortune.com lists him among the top five GoT actors making between $500,000 – $3.5 million (depending on residuals, etc.) per episode.
No reports yet on wether the newlyweds immediately fled the reception after a vicious massacre of their guests on the back of a dragon to hump in a wet cave.
