It's like a Game of Thrones dream come true, except it's real and it's official. The HBO series former co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have made their first red carpet appearance as a couple at yesterday's Olivier Awards in London.

Fans will know them as having played fiery on-screen couple Jon Snow and Ygritte in Game of Thrones, although the relationship was cut short when Ygritte was killed in season four. The two were romantically linked in 2012 before they reportedly split up. Earlier this year, however, co-star Emilia Clarke pretty much confirmed their relationship when asked about a certain Los Angeles outing where Kit and Rose were photographed holding hands.

"You know, we like to spread the love on our show. It's a beautiful thing," Emilia told Entertainment Tonight. "She's one of my best friends, so it's good."

Of course it's good! The chemistry is real and it has us wondering if Kit and Rose are going to be the new Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. Makes you wish Ygritte was still alive in Game of Thrones, doesn't it? And suddenly, this song is five times greater than it ever was.
