What Kit Harington *Really* Thinks About His Future Children Seeing ‘Game of Thrones'

Steamy cave (and boat) scenes aside, Jon Snow is already thinking about his future offspring. 

Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington, who met his wife, Rose Leslie (Ygritte), on the set of GoT before the two tied the knot last summer, sat down with GQ Australia recently and said he’s so excited his (possible) future children could see their parents meet on screen.

“It dawned on me, recently,” Harington said in the profile. “And I have no idea if we will, but say me and Rose do have children. They’ll know. They’ll be able to see the genesis of their parents getting together. Which is quite a wonderful thought, really.”

Leslie and Harington met on the HBO show in 2011, and had an on-screen romance that turned into a real-life love story. The two announced their engagement in September 2017. While her time on the show ended in season four, Harington will play Snow for the final and eighth season of the epic show, set to premiere in April.

“I thank the show for everything,” Harington said. “But more than anything else, I thank it for introducing me to her.”

We wonder what Aunt Dany would have to say about all this… (And someone pass the tissues, please.)
