Leslie and Harington, 33, famously portrayed star-crossed lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte on the Emmy-winning HBO series Game of Thrones and first stirred up relationship rumors in 2012.
After a brief split, the couple reconciled and continued to fuel romance speculation until they officially confirmed the relationship in April 2016.
They got engaged in September 2017, confirming the happy news the old-fashioned (and very British) way: through a classified advert in The Times. Leslie and Harington wed in her native Scotland the following summer.

These days, Leslie and Harington are spending quality time together in their Tudor manor house in East Anglia, England, which she jokingly called "the house that Jon Snow built."
"It's incredibly old. We have a thatched roof, which currently has an enormous hornet's nest in it. I do love to think about the house and all the people who have lived there. Were they happy, how did they live? All the families passing under those ancient beams," Leslie told Make Magazine.
"What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup. It's a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbors. It's so peaceful," she added.
