The news broke two weeks ago that Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie got engaged. It was a happy day for GoT fans. They celebrated and rewatched their favorite Jon Snow/Ygritte moments.
However, on the UK’s Jonathan Ross Show, Harington revealed the wedding would fall during the shooting of GoT‘s final season. Since many of the guests will be Harington and Leslie’s co-stars, this landed the couple in a predicament. Harington had to request producers of the show to pause shooting for the wedding.
I rang [the producer] up and I said, ‘I’m getting married and it’s your fault actually.’ I think for the final season he is so stressed that he’s reached that peaceful level. I was like, ‘You need to factor in a “Game of Thrones” wedding by the way.’ They [the cast] have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down.”
It’s likely the final season won’t arrive until 2019 as is, and now this? Granted it is only a day off and it is for a joyous occasion. In the name of true love, maybe there’s nothing to be upset about. Jon & Ygritte forever.
