After going public with his relationship with girlfriend (and Game of Thrones alum) Rose Leslie in April, Harington is opening up about the early days of their romance, which began on set while shooting in Iceland for season 2. Harington explains the weeks spent in the country as his favorite of the series – and for good reason.
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he says in the new cover story for L’Uomo Vogue. “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.”
Though rumors of romance had been flying since 2012, the couple, both 29, made their red carpet debut together in April at the Olivier Awards in London after being spotted engaged in some PDA in January.
Though Jon Snow may know nothing, Harington certainly knows a thing or two about romance.
