Jon Snow and Ygritte are engaged, or at least their real-life counterparts Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are. The Game of Thrones stars have been dating on and off for five years and now they're tying the knot, a source tells People. In 2014, Leslie told People she and Harington actually knew each other before they both ended up on GoT, and that her sex scene with him on the show was her first ever. "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," she said at the time. A source tells the Sun the couple has been announcing their engagement to friends. "Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle down a bit first. After moving in together in January he felt it was the right time to take the next step." (More Game of Thrones stories.)
