There really is nothing more romantic from a fan’s perspective than a beautiful onscreen couple who end up dating in real life. It doesn’t always work out, but the idea that they took their chemistry from behind the cameras into the real world is very cool. Some of these larger-than-life TV or movie couples gave a real-life romance a go…
KIT HARINGTON AND ROSE LESLIE
Game of Thrones fan favorite couple Jon Snow and Ygritte had crazy chemistry. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, both 27, ended a one year romance last August. But the Brits are back on! They have reportedly been dating again for the past three months. Speculation of the reconciliation was first sparked in July when they were photographed arriving at Los Angeles International Airport together before attending a San Diego Comic-Con panel for their fantasy series. Both are London residents who knew each other before the HBO show, but their friendship turned romantic while working on set.
