Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie announce their wedding date
In a 2016 interview, Harington very cutely described falling in love with his future wife and GoT co-star
If you're not over the royal wedding and are still missing the festive spirit it created, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have got your back. The Game of Thrones stars have finally announced the date of their wedding, and it's going to take place in less than a month.
According to a report by BBC, the couple has set their wedding date for June 23, so it's coming up real soon.
In their statement, the publication reported, "A 23 June date has been posted at the Huntly registration office in Aberdeenshire. The actress's father, councilor Seb Leslie, owns a castle in his West Garioch constituency."
Leslie and Harington, who first met on the sets of the hit HBO drama, had announced their engagement last fall in a very sweet and traditional way. The couple made their engagement announcement through a newspaper advertisement, which was labeled adorably old-fashioned and beautiful.
"MR. K.C. HARINGTON AND MISS R.E. LESLIE. The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughters of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire," the announcement read.
Like a lot of other Hollywood celebrities, both Harington and Leslie like to keep their private life away from the media's eye, but the couple has spoken about their relationship and on-set romance on multiple occasions.
In a 2016 interview, Harington very cutely described falling in love with his future wife and GoT co-star.
"Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love," he said. "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."
In another interview, the actor shyly admitted that his best ever memory of the show were the three weeks in Iceland when they filmed the second season in 2012.
He even spoke about his proposal, and how it turned out to be a less-than-perfect one, on The Jonathan Ross Show in October 2017.
"I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff, but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early," he said, laughing. "Sorry, that’s a really bad expression!"
Even Leslie has spoken out about her love for her former co-star, and in an interview with People magazine, opened up about how easy it was to fall in love with Harington.
"Kit is a lovely and funny man and a dear friend. It was always such a privilege to be working opposite him and such a blessing that we get on in real life because it made our characters more believable," Leslie said.
