Kit Harington is now being credited as one of the TV industry's best secret-keepers – having known that his Game of Thrones character Jon Snow is alive and well, and keeping that from everyone, including his own cast mates for over a year. But there's one thing he recently said in an interview that is no lie.

Six seasons on, the 29-year-old's best memory on the set of the HBO series is this: "The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love." Kit refers to his girlfriend, Rose Leslie, who played Jon Snow's wildling girlfriend Ygritte. "If you're already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it's becomes very easy to fall in love…"

Oh, cruel world.
