In some new photos that were uploaded by TMZ, you can see “Game of Thrones” star Rose Leslie (Ygritte) and Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) engaging in what seems to be a romantic dinner date in London earlier this month. It’s not clear when the two parties would have actually started to date, but they had a good opportunity to get to know each other very well last year. Harrington and Leslie’s scenes are filming in Iceland, and the days are long on the set in addition to be cold and under the constant threat of darkness. This probably led to there being plenty of time to bond — even if they did not start a relationship until later on.
Leslie (who is also well-known for her role on “Downton Abbey”) and Harrington are going to have plenty of time to potentially work on a relationship yet again later this year, as the two actors are going to be heading back to the country once again for the filming of season 3. This time around, they will also be joined by former “Rome” star Cirian Hinds, who is going to be playing the King Beyond the Wall in Mance Rayder. Filming is expected to last for several months, and the new season is set to premiere on March 31, 2013 on HBO.
Leslie made a recent high-profile appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego last month. While Harington was scheduled to appear at the convention, he ended up pulling out at the last minute due to an injury.
