Westeros is abuzz with gossip. Speculation is surfacing that Game of Thrones star Kit Harington might be engaged to his former co-star Rose Leslie. Is it really true?! Will they be sending their wedding invitations by raven? Will all of Westeros, ahem, Los Angeles be invited? Here's the real deal on the rumors.
The Game of Thrones actors met when Leslie's character was introduced in season two of the HBO series, and after keeping their relationship as private as possible for a stint, the couple went public with their relationship last year. "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," Harington previously told L'Uomo Vogue of Leslie. Now, a gossip mag is reporting that the pair is planning to tie the knot.
As Gossip Cop reports, a source has divulged to Life & Style that Harington has allegedly popped the question to Leslie and the two are currently planning a wedding in a castle in Scotland. (We wonder if this castle has an iron throne...)
"Kit recently cooked Rose a romantic candlelight dinner and proposed to her," the source reportedly told Life & Style. "She burst into tears and immediately said yes!"
The alleged insider also noted that the couple is envisioning a "traditional Scottish wedding with kilts and bagpipes," as Scotland is where the supposed-bride grew up. "They aren’t into the whole Hollywood scene at all," said the source.
This possible proposal doesn't sound that outlandish when you take into consideration that the couple really is getting serious. Just last month, on an appearance on The Late Late Show alongside Nicole Kidman, Harington shared that Leslie had moved into his home in England. "I've moved in with my other best friend, Rose," said the actor. "So, I’m very, very happy and it’s going well."
During the conversation, Nicole Kidman even put the pressure on Harington to pop the question! "Are you going to get married?" the actress asked pointedly. "I've been put on the spot by Nicole Kidman!" Harington joked in reply. "I mean, it’s step by step, step by step."
But it looks like, Harington and Leslie aren't quite ready to take that particular step as of yet. Gossip Cop reports that the engagement rumors are unfortunately false. A rep for the actor has confirmed that Harington hasn't proposed to Leslie and that the tabloid's story is "fabricated."
Well, whenever these two do finally decide to tie the knot, we've got a ton of GOT-inspired ideas for 'em!
