Kit Harrington & Rose Leslie his girlfriend/ Game of Thrones Co-Star move in together

That “You know nothing, Jon Snow” cave moment in Game of Thrones was Kit Harington’s first sex scene. The same goes for Rose Leslie, his scene partner, onscreen love interest (Ygritte the Wildling) and now-girlfriend. Their cave canoodling, which cemented GoT’s most memorable one-liner, was filmed in Belfast in 2012.

Since then,  Harington and Leslie were were rumored to be an on-and-off couple before their relationship was confirmed early last year. (They were spotted holding hands in LA in January 2016 and made their red carpet debut a few months later.)

Despite being one of modern TV’s most iconic on- and off-screen duos, Harington remains quite private about his and Leslie’s romance, to be considerate, “’cause it’s as much her relationship as it is mine and I can’t speak for both of us,” he told Esquire. “But yeah, we are very, very happy. So that’s what I’ll say about that.”

They’re so happy, in fact, that they’ve decided to move in together, but they haven’t decided where yet. During his interview with the mag, the actor’s phone blew up with calls and messages as he and Leslie coordinate with a real estate agent to see apartments in Manhattan, writer Logan Hill reveals. But the pair wasn’t sold on New York; Harington later admitted he’s also “looking for a house in the English countryside; next week it will be Florida. Never take my word on what the fuck I’m doing!”

But as he moves in with Leslie, Harington is also working on moving on from Game of Thrones, which is set to end in 2018. “Maybe I can reinvent myself and get away from an image that’s so synonymous with Thrones,” he told Esquire. “But maybe this was the role I was always meant to play and that was it.”

There’s no denying he was meant to play Jon Snow, considering his natural brooding look, raven locks and scruffy beard (which he’s “counting down the days” to shave). His costars are also aware of the significance of Harington’s hair—and mercilessly tease him for it.

“There’s a consistent drumbeat of taking the piss out of his incredible hair and startling good looks. His hair just takes over everything. My ridiculous handcrafted wig doesn’t come close to standing up to his man bun,” according to Emilia Clarke.

“There’s a change in the level of female lust in the room when Kit is there, which all the males find annoying and disrespectful,” Nikolaj Coster-Waldau teased.

Liam Cunningham’s (Davos Seaworth) quip might have been the best: “His hair has its own trailer.”
