In the second season of Game of Thrones, fans were introduced to the Rose Leslie’s character Ygritte, who quickly became the love interest of everyone’s favorite bastard son of the North, Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Sadly, the relationship ended badly for Jon Snow’s beloved, but fans everywhere rejoiced when they learned that Harington and Leslie were dating in real life.
#KitHarington and #RoseLeslie’s relationship is still going strong, and recently, they announced that they were officially engaged. In the weeks since their engagement, a delightful video of Harington pranking Leslie went viral, and now another fun moment between the two is making the rounds.
During a recent interview, Hrrington revealed that he attended a costume party dressed like his #GameOfThrones character, all thanks to Leslie.
Kit Harington Dressed As Jon Snow To A Costume Party Because Rose Leslie Told Him To
Speaking with Heat magazine, Harington told a story of a time when he and Leslie attended a fancy dress party. (For those in America, “fancy dress” is a term that basically means "costume party.") The theme was “bad taste,” and Leslie stumbled across the perfect idea for Kit’s costume:
“So, we went to the one costume shop that was open, and the woman who worked there said, ‘You know, you really look like the guy from Game of Thrones, and I’ve got a Game of Thrones outfit.’ And she pulled out a Jon Snow costume, and Rose just whispered in my ear, ‘I won’t love you if you don’t wear it ... You should do it.’”
It’s awesome that the woman at the costume shop didn’t initially recognize that she sold a Jon Snow costume to Kit Harington, and it’s even better that Rose made him wear it. Once they went to the party, the costume didn’t get the best reaction from the other partygoers and staff:
“The people bringing round canapés were looking at me, thinking, ‘You sad man! You’ve come dressed as your character.’ I think the woman in the shop realized who I was as I was leaving. But what’s even sadder: me going to a fancy dress shop and buying a Jon Snow costume.”
While Harington makes the party seem like a drag, the Instagram photo above shows the couple having a great time. Sure, Harington probably felt a bit silly, but the look on Rose Leslie's face is absolutely priceless.
The more we get to learn about Rose Leslie and Kit Harington’s relationship, the more obvious it becomes that they are perfect together. Sure, these are just silly stories they share with the public, but the two seem to genuinely love each other and enjoy each other’s company. Hopefully, we’ll hear more amazing stories from the couple in the future and we wish them all the best.
