Harington and Leslie's enduring romance began in 2012. The two, both 32, first met on set when their characters -- Jon Snow and Ygritte, respectively -- were onscreen lovers. Interestingly enough, they both shot their very first love scene with one another -- a memorable sex scene in a cave -- and Leslie's Ygritte was also the one to declare the endlessly memed line, "You know nothing, Jon Snow."
Harington spoke about the start of their romance in a 2016 interview with Vogue and revealed that he fell in love with Leslie when they were filming in Iceland.
"The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season," he said when asked about his best memory of the show. "Because 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…”
"I fell in love in Iceland," Harington also said during his 2016 appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. "I fell in love with my co-star."
Leslie's character was eventually shockingly killed by a young boy during a gruesome battle scene between the wildlings and crows at Castle Black in season four, though her romance with Harington lived on off-screen. Read on for more of the couple's biggest moments:

“I remember over the summer obviously the new episodes for the final season were coming through onto his iPad," she shared. "I can read his facial expressions. I don’t want to know anything that’s going on within his eyes, so I sent him packing. I kind of boot him out so that he can go to the coffee shop, because I can gauge. If he stiffens, it’s like, ‘Ooo someone’s dead.’ And then my mind goes off.”
