‘Game of Thrones’ actors Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie marry in Scotland
LONDON: Actors Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who played on-screen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte in fantasy TV saga “Game of Thrones” tied the nuptial knot in Aberdeenshire area of Scotland on Saturday.
The ceremony was held at the remote Wardhill Castle in Aberdeenshire, which has been in Leslie’s family for 900 years, according to the Daily Mail.
The couple, who met on set in 2012, announced the engagement in the Times newspaper last September, and the wedding date was submitted to the local registry office last month.
Co-stars Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, Peter Dinklage, who played Tyrion Lannister and a number of other actors attended the event.
Harington had told L’Uomo Vogue that the on-screen romance contributed to the pair getting together, after filming in Iceland in 2012.
“The country is beautiful … the Northern Lights are magical … 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.”
