8 Pairs of Game of Thrones Stars That Gave Love a Try in Real Life
TV co-stars get together in real life all the time. Nickelodeon’s the home of at least six celebrity couples, Disney Channel’s the reason behind 12 romantic pairs, heck, The Vampire Diaries alone marked the beginning of at least seven different couplings. What takes the cake, though, may be from a more mature TV network.
HBO’s ever-popular Game of Thrones is packed with inappropriate ~love~ stories. You’ve got incest, you’ve got rape, you’ve got prostitution… The only “good” ones (i.e. Robb + Talisa, Jon + Ygritte) are over because, you know, death. Fortunately, real-life love is possible for varying duos from the television drama. Here are eight(!) pairs of GoT stars that gave love a try in real life — like Kit Harington & Rose Leslie!

After Hollywood's worst-kept secret — the fact that Jon Snow's actually alive! — was finally revealed on air, Kit went on a promotional rampage, discussing both the show and his personal life in more detail than ever before.
In one particular interview with Italian Vogue, the 29-year-old hottie openly spoke about his relationship with co-star Rose (Ygritte), who he's been linked to, on and off, since 2012.
When asked about his best memory from the entire series, 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. If you're already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest [on] the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love…" Swoon.
