Kit Harington and Rose Leslie made all Game of Thrones fans' dreams come true when they confirmed their engagement last week. Not surprisingly, their announcement, which ran in The Times newspaper, was posh and classic. "The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire," the spot read. Quite frankly, it doesn't get any more perfect than this. Two hot British actors taking out space in a newspaper to declare their love for each other? That's what fairy tales are made of.
But the exact proposal apparently wasn't as perfect. In a new interview with Jonathan Ross, Harington reveals his engagement plans went awry when he asked the golden question a little too early.
"I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff, but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early," he said, according to The Sun.
Realizing his, erm, peculiar choice of words, he quickly clarified, "I was meant to do it the day after with the lights. What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early. Not blew my load.…Sorry that’s a really bad expression." See, guys! Even Jon Snow gets nervous.
The couple is now in full wedding-planning mode; Harington revealed to Ross he told the Game of Thrones producers that the show has to shut down for their wedding so everyone can attend. After all, Harington and Leslie did meet on set.
"I was like, ‘You need to factor in a Game of Thrones wedding, by the way.’ [The cast] have all got to be there, so the whole thing has got to shut down."
I'll be waiting patiently by the mail for my invite.
