The Game of Thrones characters Rose Leslie and Kit Harington have finally revealed their wedding date. The on-screen lovers Ygritte and Jon Snow will tie the knot on June 23.
Although, the final installment of Game of Thrones HBO series will come in 2019 but fans can't wait for the most anticipated off-screen events.
According to the BBC’s report, a 23 June date has been posted at the Huntly registration office in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, where Leslie’s father, councillor Seb Leslie, owns a castle.
The couple met on set of Game of Thrones in 2012 and their romance started from that moment itself. They got engaged in September, three years after Leslie left the show. The character of Wildling Ygritte, was killed off after 17 episodes. Jon Snow will appear in the show's final season in 2019.
"I've moved in with my best friend, Rose," Haringotn said during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden last summer. "So, I'm very, very happy and it's going well. She has all sorts of ideas for the house…. I said to her, because she moved into my house, 'Look, darling, this is important that it's 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."
He continued, "I went to the shops and I came back and said, 'What did you decide?' And she said, 'We're moving the kitchen downstairs.'"
Harington is "a great man," Leslie told The Telegraph. "I’m very proud of him. There’s an understanding that comes with the job, an understanding of being busy and when you have to say ‘Sorry, I’m just going to bugger off for two months to film.’”
Harington described falling for Leslie on set in Iceland in a cover story for L’Uomo Vogue: “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 becomes very easy to fall in love.”
A recent on-set photo showed Harington kissing his co-star, Emilia Clarke, during production.
