Small Screen heartthrob Kit Harington popped the question to Game of Thrones lover and co-star Rose Leslie after 5 years of romance, sources revealed.
“They’re yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they’ve got engaged”, a close Source revealed to the Associated Press.
Kit had always known he wanted to marry Rose
Kit Harington had always known he wanted to marry Rose but wanted to wait until they got a house and settled in completely. After the news of them buying a £1.75 million worth house together surfaced, it was obvious Kit would propose eventually.
“After moving in together in January he felt it was the right time to take the next step.”, claimed the insider.
Although they kept the relationship under wraps for four years, after moving in together in July this year, Kit and Rosie has been talking profoundly of each other.
Kit said in an interview, “I said to her, cause she’s moved into my house, ‘Look darling, it’s important that this is our space. That it feels like our space. That you haven’t just moved into mine. Move anything you want around, change anything, chuck anything out.”
Harington is all set to shoot for the final season of GOT. On talking about how they fell in love, he shared how he fell for Leslie during the second season of historical period drama in Iceland.
Because it was there that I fell in love- Kit Harington
Sharing about the moment he fell in love with the beautiful co-star Rose, he said:
“The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love.”
Apart from the beautiful backdrop, the fact that the person you love in real life is your on-screen love interest makes falling in love even easier.
“If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it’s becomes very easy to fall in love.”
