Romances in Westeros never end particularly well, so it’s only natural that these two would take their relationship to the real world where it might end particularly well.
Game of Thrones stars Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie unveiled their much hinted at but never explicitly confirmed romance on Sunday, when they appeared together at the Olivier Awards in London.
EW reports the pair looked quite cozy on the red carpet, and shared a quick kiss.
The pair played Jon Snow and Ygritte on the HBO hit show respectively. Jon Snow the undercover member of the Night’s Watch who fell in love with Ygritte of the enemy Wildling force. The pair’s legendary romance ended when Jon bolted to rejoin his Night’s Watch brothers, and Ygritte later died in his arms in battle.
Luckily, they get to continue the romance despite on-screen deaths.
Leslie has not been part of the show since her character’s death in Season 5, whilst the status of Harrington is actually one of the most contested for the new season. His character died in the Season 5 finale, but many fans, yours truly included, believe whole-heartedly that he would be resurrected when season 6 commences on April 24.
