When TV Guide asked Leslie, 29, if Jon Snow should be the King of Westeros on GoT, she said, “He’s definitely tough enough. I think that he’s incredibly just and he’d make a brilliant king.”
Of course, Leslie is a little biased. Not only did her character Ygritte fall in love with Jon Snow, but Leslie and Harington also started dating in real life. Harington, 30, even said that shooting Season 2 of GoT in Iceland was his favorite because it was when his relationship with Leslie began.
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he told Vogue Italia. “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.”
And Harington’s girlfriend was one of the only people who knew Jon Snow was alive on GoT after the shocking Season 5 cliffhanger. But Leslie said that she normally doesn’t get too many spoilers. “I’m not too sure where it’s going to head,” she told TV Guide.
Harington and Leslie first started dating in 2010, but the private couple never addressed the relationship speculation. They split up and got back together multiple times, though they always remained friends. And they sparked reconciliation rumors again when they were seen out together last January. They then made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Olivier Awards in April.
Harington and Leslie have been going strong ever since. They’ve been out together multiple times, including over Thanksgiving weekend. Now Game of Thrones fans are wondering if they will get engaged soon.
