Famous Games of Thrones actor Kit Harington and his longtime girlfriend Rose Leslie are set to get married. The two famous actors actually met on the set of Game of Thrones. The two have been dating for no less than five years.
According to a source talking to The Sun, Kit decided to propose to Rose over the summer. And apparently, the two want to wed in the near future. “They’re yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they’ve got engaged,” the insider said. “Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle first,” the same source added.
According to this insider, Kit and Rose moved in together at the beginning of the year and since then the actor “felt it was the right time to take the next step.” When it comes to living together, Kit said that he was happy because he moved in with his best friend. “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,'” Kit said during a previous interview.
The famous actor and his girlfriend purchased this year a medieval home in Eastern England. And it surely seems that Kit is very much in love with his girlfriend. During an interview with Vogue Italia, the star claimed that he fell in love with Rose while filming the second season of Game of Thrones. “The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northers Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” the actor explained. “If you’re attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love,” he concluded.
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have started dating in 2012. The two have always been very private about their personal life. The engagement rumors have not been confirmed for the moment.
