'Game Of Thrones' Couple Kit Harrington & Rose Leslie Split
Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie, who play Jon Snow and wildling Ygritte, respectively, on Game of Thrones, are reportedly no longer an item.
Harrington and Leslie, who play mismatched love interests on the hit HBO medieval fantasy series, have ended their brief off-screen romance, according to the Daily Mail. "Rose and Kit are no longer together,” a source told the U.K. paper. “Rose has a new boyfriend who is not in the public eye. She is eager to keep this relationship out of the spotlight."
The costars began dating one another after their Game of Thrones characters became involved. On the show, Ygritte repeatedly propositions the dutiful man of the Night’s Watch until he finally caves in to his baser instincts – in a cave. From that point on, the two are inseparable and confess their love to one another. Everything seems perfect between them, until Jon sees his chance to break off from the Wildlings and leaves Ygritte. She tracks him down and lands a few arrows through his mail. In short, they break up.
Barring the arrows, it looks like life imitated the show in the split as well as the love story.
In April, Harrington candidly described his ideal girl. “She’s got to be funny,” he told Glamour. “I like a girl who does not take me seriously, you know? It’s important to be able to laugh at each other. And I like a girl who eats. I much prefer that she order the burger.” Maybe he’ll soon find this girl, as Leslie has apparently already moved on to another guy.
Game of Thrones' fourth season will premiere in late March or early April of 2014.
