We can assume they met in 2011 during the filming of the second season of _Game Of Thrones, with Rose Leslie playing Ygritte, and Kit Harington playing Jon Snow.

Their characters shared one of the steamiest relationships on the show, and clearly fiction turned into real life when they were spotted holding hands in the summer of 2012.

Kit denied rumors of the two dating, trying to keep their relationship private, telling Simone Boyce of Winter is Coming that the two were simply good friends (but who ever believes that?)

He said, "We really get on as friends and we hit it off very quickly when we first met and I think that reflects on screen because we've got a good dialogue going on off-screen."

Kit continued to deny rumors of a romance, telling The Standard in 2014, "Me and Rose are very, very close and very good friends. And continue to be, actually. She's wonderful. But no, no love affair."

Kit reiterated his statements once again in February 2015, claiming he is single. He told GQ magazine, "I'll never talk about any particular relationship I've been in. But I will say I'm single at the moment. I'm about to move on when he continues: "Relationships as an actor are incredibly difficult. With someone who's not an actor, because they never get to see you; and with someone who is an actor, because you're ships in the night a lot of the time."

Clearly, he did everything he could to deny the relationship, most likely wanting to keep it private for as long as possible.

They Finally Went Public In 2016


Finally, finally, finally! The couple made their official red carpet debut in 2016 at the Olivier Awards confirming years of rumors of a relationship.

That same year, Kit gushed to Vogue about falling in love while on the set of Game Of Thrones, saying, "Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love. 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."

They Were Married In 2018, But Were Followed By Cheating Rumors

In September 2017, the Game Of Thrones couple announced their engagement in The Times newspaper, and they were officially married in the summer of 2018 in Scotland.

The reception was held at Wardhill Castle, which has been in Rose's family for many generations.

Unfortunately, just a few months later, Kit was dogged by cheating rumors. Russian model and actress Olga Vlaslova claimed she had an affair with the actor, however he strenuously denied this.

A rep. for Kit told ET Canada, "The allegations in this story are completely false. (Harington) has never even been to Luxembourg nor has he ever met Olga Vlasova."

Well, claiming they have never even met is a good denial, and possibly Olga was trying to look for her 15 minutes of fame. Or, are the rumors true? We may never know.

They Looked Loved Up At The Golden Globes

The couple looked super loved up when they attended the Golden Globes recently, with Kit being nominated for his role as Jon Snow in Game Of Thrones. The couple had not been seen in public together for about 6 months until December, so this marks a rare public appearance for them.

Despite looking super happy on the red carpet, things appeared to get chilly between the pair when they left the CCA after-party looking tense and glaring at the waiting cameras.

So, what is in the future for this couple? Perhaps mini Jon Snow's? We'll have to wait and see!
