Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has revealed why him and fiance Rose Leslie don’t pose for fan photos together
The newly engaged couple are fan favourites on the popular HBO show.
Speaking to the Guardian, Karington said that his level of fame has left him feeling ‘moody’ sometimes, especially when it’s to do with photos.
There are even set days when the actor won’t take pictures with anybody.
Especially me and Rose, we never do a photo together. Because then it makes our relationship feel like… puppets… like we’re a walking show.
The pair began dating in 2012 after meeting on the show. They played on screen couple Jon Snow and Ygritte. However, their relationship wasn’t confirmed until four years later when they appeared on the red carpet for the first time.
Even considering that, they have maintained their privacy as much as possible, rarely opening up about one another.

In May, Harington told Esquire they were going to move in together but didn’t elaborate as ‘it’s as much her relationship as it is mine and I can’t speak for both of us.’
Their engagement was announced on September 27, 2017, after months of speculation.
Harington revealed last week he wants to make sure he has enough free time to enjoy his wedding before heading into production – he made the revelation on The Jonathan Ross Show, saying HBO will stop production so he can wed Rose.
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.’ [The cast and crew] have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down.’

Talking about the proposal, he added:
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.
I was meant to do it the day after with the lights. What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early. Not blew my load.
