Two years after they met, Leslie, 31, left the show while Harington, also 31, has become one of Game Of Thrones’ most popular stars and has appeared in every episode.

Speaking to L’Uomo Vogue, Harington told how it was “easy” to fall in love with Leslie and his best memory of the show was meeting his future partner while filming in Iceland in 2012.

He said: “Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love.

“If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”

Leslie previously told how she had been too busy to plan the wedding.

She told Town And Country magazine: “I haven’t tackled it. There’s just too much to do.”

The Good Fight actress said she was “trying to fit in my wedding” amid her screen roles.
