(Newser) – Kit Harington and Rose Leslie—perhaps better known to Game of Thrones fans as Jon Snow and Ygritte—are dating in real life. Queue the "squeee!" from fans who swooned over the forbidden romance between a man of the Night's Watch and a woman of the Free Folk on the HBO series, only to die a little inside when Ygritte (spoiler alert) was killed. As Vanity Fair reports, rumors of a Harington-Leslie romance have been swirling on and off for four years, but on Sunday, they appeared together at the Olivier Awards in London and even held hands and kissed on camera, making their relationship public for the first time.

Harington also discussed his love life on the Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday, confessing that he fell in love with a co-star in Iceland, per VF and Time. "This is Rose who plays Ygritte who I’ve met who is just the loveliest girl and she could do so much better," he said as he held up a photo of them together.
