Kit Harington & Rose Leslie Reportedly Get Engaged After 5 Years of Dating
Kit Harington owes a lot to Game of Thrones — his career, of course, but also his love life. The 30-year-old actor met Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte, in 2012, and the pair started dating shortly after. The celebrities’ relationship started out a little rocky, but it’s now solid as ever…like, so solid that they apparently took things to the next level and got engaged!
Sources told The Sun, “They’re yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they’ve got engaged.”
An insider told the newspaper that Kit’s decision to pop the question was finalized when he and the 30-year-old actress moved in together in January.
“Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle down a bit first,” the source continued. “After moving in together in January he felt it was the right time to take the next step.”
The British heartthrob admitted that he fell in love with Rose after shooting with her for “three weeks in Iceland” during the second season of GoT.
He told Vogue Italia, “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…”
The real-life lovers denied engagement rumors that were started by Life & Style earlier this summer with a rep for Kit saying clearly, “They are not engaged.”
So far, reps for the actors have stayed quiet on the subject.
