Game of Thrones has its share of death and sad endings. The same goes for Ygritte and Jon Snow. Fairy-tales don’t last forever. But in real life Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are very much together. It just goes to show that love can make it through anything.
When Harington was asked what was his favorite memory on the set of GoT he replied: “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 in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
Eeep! I don’t know about you, but I’m swooning over here. Help me I need a fan it’s so hot. Ha ha!
Despite the dreary world of Westeros, love prevails. Let’s give you 11 reasons why Jon and Ygritte fans will love Leslie and Harington’s romance.
1. Because You Still Get To See “Jon” & “Ygritte” Together
Kit and Rose are adorable together. It is wonderful seeing those two attending events. It’s heartwarming, even for the coldest soul.
2. They Channel Jon & Ygritte In One Interesting Way
Kit and Rose are very private people, much like the characters they play on GoT. Despite this privacy, just like on the show, the two hide their love for each other horribly. It is painfully obvious these two love each other dearly.
