This actually sounds like a (non-violent) Game of Thrones scene

Just when we thought the idea of having Kit Harington as a boyfriend IRL coudn't get anymore romantic and dreamy, he’s only gone and melted hearts the world over (again) by describing how he and his former Game Of Thrones co-star and girlfriend Rose Leslie fell in love.

Now before we share these quotes with you, we feel it’s our duty to warn you that there’s a high possibility that any cute, romantic getting together story that you and your partner have is about to be put to shame, as this story is set in Iceland and involves words like ‘magical’ and ‘Northern Lights.’

Speaking to Vogue Italia, Kit revealed he fell for character Jon Snow’s Game of Thrones love interest Ygritte (played by Rose Leslie) while filming.

‘Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,’ said the 29-year-old.

‘If you're already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.’

Why we've fallen completely in love with Kit Harington

Harington and Leslie have been dating on and off since 2012, and went public with their relationship at the 2016 Olivier Awards.

Being Kit Harington’s girlfriend also means you’re privy to certain top-secret information. While the rest of the world (no exaggeration) pulled their hair out worrying about Jon Snow’s fate, only Rose knew whether he was dead or alive.

Oh and a policeman who caught him speeding.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon, Kit revealed what happened when he got pulled over by the law. 'You can either follow me back to the police station now where I’ll book you in, or you can tell me whether you live in the next [season] of Game of Thrones.'

'"I have to tell you, whether I take you into the police station depends on what your answer is." I looked at him, and went, "I'm alive next season.'"

'He goes, "On your way Lord Commander. Keep the speed down this far south of the Wall.'"
