Rose and Kit met on the set on Game of Thrones, where they played star-crossed onscreen lovers, Ygritte and Jon Snow. In the show, Jon Snow is forced to pretend to betray his brothers in the Night’s Watch, joining the Wildlings in order to gain their trust, but truly falling in love with Ygritte, a quick-witted, tough Wildling who shows Jon a new way of how to live.

Chatting about their romance to Vogue Italia back in 2016, Kit said: “The country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love. 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.”

Chatting on The Jonathan Ross Show, Kit later said: "We did a little announcement in The Times… 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. Sorry, that's a really bad expression!”
