Whether we like to admit it or not, we all love a little romance in our TV or movies. We love seeing characters fall in love and start drama, and sometimes we get so emotionally involved, we wish the actors playing these characters would actually date in real life. When art imitates life, fans simply can’t get enough. Well, off-screen relationships between actors happen way more than you might think. In fact, they happen all the time. Some relationships work out, some crash and burn, but one thing is for sure. They’re all full of juicy gossip and we can’t look away. Check out this list of the hottest on-screen celebrity couples who took their relationships to the real world.
1. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie famously met on the set of Game of Thrones, where they played Jon Snow and Ygritte. They played each other’s love interests in seasons two and three, and rumors soon began flying about whether they were dating in real life as well. Their chemistry on the show was undeniable, but the on-again-off-again couple kept the status of their relationship under wraps for the most part.
Kit and Rose eventually confirmed their relationship status and got married in Scotland in 2018. Game of Thrones fans were thrilled to learn that the couple tied the knot in an actual Scottish castle. Very on-brand. They recently welcomed a baby boy in February 2021. As we know, happy endings rarely happen in Game of Thrones, so we’re glad these two actors have gotten their happily ever after in real life.
