Kit Harington & Rose Leslie (GoT’s Jon Snow & Ygritte) broke up in real life

I don’t think we ever really discussed how Kit Harington and Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow and Ygritte the Wildling) were a real-life couple. It must have happened when they started filming scenes together at the end of season two and throughout season 3. Especially when Jon Snow proved himself to be quite capable with the oral pleasures, if you know what I mean. Kit and Rose (who you might also know from Downton Abbey’s first season) kept their relationship pretty quiet, so we really don’t know when they started up or anything. But now it’s over! So sad.

“Game Of Thrones” co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have ended their real life romance, according to a U.K. report.

The actors began dating after becoming close on the set of HBO’s hit fantasy TV series, but their off-screen relationship has now come to an end, according to Britain’s Mail on Sunday.

A source tells the publication, “Rose and Kit are no longer together. Rose has a new boyfriend who is not in the public eye. She is eager to keep this relationship out of the spotlight.”

The former couple played onscreen lovers Ygritte and Jon Snow on the show.

Maybe their relationship ended when she shot him with her arrows of doom? It will probably work out well because I don’t see how Jon and Ygritte will have many scenes together next season, right? He abandoned her and she shot him. End of story? And now she has a new boyfriend. Which is fine. Poor Kit, though. He’s totally the Teen Beat character/actor from Game of Thrones, so he’ll probably find someone new with little effort. Maybe he and the Khaleesi can hook up in real life. I fear that Emilia Clarke has no douche-radar though… but maybe Kit would be really good for her.

    Awww. I like them. I would love to have her hair.

      Game of Thrones — please come back to me. I miss you desperately.

      And now that they have split, I will be totally perked up to their dynamic on the show…

  2. Jen34 says:

    Well, crap. They were dating? I didn’t even get to enjoy them as a couple, and now they’ve broken up.

  3. Gretchen says:

    Hahaha, the report must have been released from her side with the whole “she has a new boyfriend” thing….not such an amicable split perhaps?

    It is kind of funny that she’s dating this new non-public guy to stay out of the spotlight as it wasn’t as if her and Kit were big news anyway.

    • MissMary says:

      Sounds like she was papped with the new guy and wanted to say “oh, no, Kit and I aren’t together” before some tab reported she was cheating or something.

      • mom2two says:

        Her and Kit really weren’t big news, for the most part, the relationship flew under the radar. When he was doing press for season 3, he said they weren’t dating.
        Honestly, I was never sure if they were dating all along anyway but I guess they were if this press announcement is to be believed.
        I like Emilia and all, but I think her and Kit will only be good friends.
        I’m sure he’s not lacking for company.

    I love Rose Leslie. Such a naturally pretty girl.

    Wasn’t he spotted with Rachel McAdams a few months ago? Weren’t there people hoping they would hook up?

  5. Liv says:

    I want him to get together with Rachel McAdams! 🙂

  6. Bubbling says:

    ooh lemme comfort you John Snow

  7. Elodie says:

    Eh? But… they broke up ages I thought it was known? They broke up right end of March right before season 3 aired.

    They started dating last year, there wer pics of them at a restaurant holding hands and all, and someone took sneak pics with a phone..

  8. SolitaryAngel says:

    You know nothing, Jon Snoooooow.
    Grrr….. SO glad not to be hearing THAT all next season!!!

  9. Mia 4S says:

    Well even if they have scenes together, it’s Game of Thrones so I assume one of them will be dead soon anyway. Love the show but damn is it harsh!

  10. Mew says:

    Haha, I thought exactly the same! It must’ve been because he ran away and she shot her with arrows. Quite sad, but I’m not really surprised. Hopefully they both find happiness.

  11. Aww this is sad news, I totally ship them on GoT (they’re my second favorite couple after Jaime and Cersei!) and I think they were a really cute couple 🙁

  12. Ldubbs says:

    Haha!! This dude is no good. He is shooting a movie here in Toronto and has definitely had “words” with a few ladies I know. AND, loves party favours.
    Plus, he is the tiniest man.
    Not hot in real life at all.
    Just my two cents.

  13. gelatoinmyvag says:

    I don’t know why but I thought that he was dating Khaleesi…

  14. oliveo says:

    I don’t watch Game of Thrones… so all I see is a young, nicely dressed Corey Feldman in these pics

  15. Tish says:

    Life imitates art. Tsk tsk. Haha!

  16. UsedToBeLulu says:

    She was fabulous in Hemlock Grove. Just watched the last episode yesterday.

  17. Chloeee says:

    I read the headline really confused and thinking, ew, her?! Then i saw her realized shes actually quite pretty. But he looks like he just smelled a fart. And he’s normally hot to me. It’s been a roller coaster of emotion

    Hopefully, life will not further imitate art.
