Game of Thrones' Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are apparently engaged
Games of Thrones actors Rose Leslie and Kit Harington are engaged, according to reports.
Harington, 30, plays Jon Snow on the globally popular hit fantasy series, while Scottish-born Leslie, 30, played his wildling love interest Ygritte on the HBO show before leaving in 2014.
Britain's The Sun newspaper is among the many outlets reporting of the couple's engagement, with a source telling the tabloid: "They're yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they've got engaged. 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."

Its not the first time their engagement has been "announced". Back in July, a US tabloid reported that Harington popped the question to Leslie over a romantic dinner. A representative for Harington denied that report.
The couple met in 2012 while filming the hit HBO show and finally announced their relationship after four years of speculation and an on-again, off-again courtship. It's also been reported that the two purchased a seven-bedroom country home that sits on eight acres and boasts a medieval-inspired moat.
But while their reps have tried to silence wedding rumours, Harington revealed earlier this year that the relationship has become serious enough that they've moved in together. In an interview on James Corden's Late, Late Show in June, Harington referred to Leslie as his "best friend" and said he's "very, very happy and it's going well".
On the same James Corden segment, fellow guest Nicole Kidman said, "It's kind of nice if you're going to live together maybe to at least get engaged."
Harington's reply indicated that's it's not a matter of "if" he and Leslie will get married but "when":
"I've been put on the spot by Nicole Kidman! I mean, it's step by step, step by step," he said.
