Game of Thrones: Kit Harington, Rose Leslie go public with romance
Game of Thrones lovebirds Kit Harington and Rose Leslie made their red carpet debut as an official couple when they both attended the Olivier Awards in London on Sunday.
Harington, looking dapper in a tuxedo and his Jon Snow tousled waves still intact, posed with the Scottish actress, who wore a stunning Malene Oddershede Bach gold gown. The pair chatted closely and shared a quick kiss while walking the carpet together.
Harington and Leslie, who played Ygritte in the HBO series, first sparked rumors of a romance in 2012, although it was later reported that the love connection fizzled out later that year. However, the two apparently rekindled their relationship and have been spotted showing PDA since January. However, the pair had yet to officially confirm their romance until Sunday.
After news of the PDA made the rounds, the couple’s costar Emilia Clarke gave her own sign of approval.
“My goodness! You know, we like to spread the love on our show. It’s a beautiful thing,” Emilia Clarke told Entertainment Tonight in January. “She’s one of my best friends, so it’s good.”
Clarke added, “I mean, there are worse things than being caught kissing Jon Snow!”
