Kit and Rose, both 29, were first linked in 2012 and dated for a bit before calling it quits. However, the two remained friends until rekindling their romance earlier this year, reports People.

Their friend and GoT co-star Emilia Clarke hinted at their relationship in January, telling Entertainment Tonight, “My goodness! You know, we like to spread the love on our show. It’s a beautiful thing.”

“She’s one of my best friends, so it’s good,” she said of Rose, adding, “I mean, there are worse things than being caught kissing Jon Snow!”

During an interview with last year, Kit revealed that “redheads” were his weakness when it came to women while the two were broken off.

“Redheads,” he said, nodding his head. “Love redheads.”
