Real-Life GoT Couple Kit Harington and Rose Leslie Take a Cozy Stroll in Northern Ireland
Rose Leslie’s character on Game of Thrones may have died a few seasons ago, but her real-life romance with co-star and onscreen lover Kit Harington is very much alive and well. The duo was spotted out and about Tuesday in Belfast, Northern Ireland, as Harrington took a break from filming GoT. Although filming had to be pushed back since, according to the show’s creators, “sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes anymore” now that winter has arrived in Westeros, it seems as though production on season seven has finally begun.
Leslie and Harington matched in blue jeans and bomber-style outwear, his a dark green jacket, and hers a black vest. Harington topped off the look with black boots, John Lennon-style glasses, and his signature man bun. Leslie went for a similar casual-cool look with a black long-sleeved shirt under the vest, plus silver cap-toe Adidas Superstars and a gray beanie with a pom pom accent.

Game of Thrones is entering it’s final two seasons, with the seventh set to premiere in the summer of next year, according to Entertainment Weekly. Season six left us on a cliffhanger with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) sailing off to Westeros with Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) the Ironborn siblings, and of course her trusty dragons; John Snow (Harington) was declared king of the north after he and his half-sister Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) took back Winterfell from the evil Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).
Plus we’ve got Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) back in Westeros working on her kill list, and the conniving Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) was crowned Queen of the Seven Kingdoms as her brother Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) watched from the sidelines, looking a bit worried about the mental state of his lover.

Thanks to the plethora of deaths over the course of six seasons, it’s gotten a bit easier to keep track of the core characters. But Game of Thrones is not one for happy endings, so we’ll have to see how it all shapes up come summer 2017. We’ve waited this long for winter to arrive, so we can wait it out a few more months to see how our characters embrace the new weather.
