Kit Harington, Rose Leslie Still Going Strong

Kit Harington, Rose Leslie Step Out In London After 'GoT' Season
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie may no longer have roles on Game Of Thrones, but their off-screen relationship is stronger than ever! According to People Magazine, the two actors -- who met and fell in love on set -- stepped out for a date the night after the GoT Season 6 premiere.

"[Kit and Rose] celebrated the premiere of Harington's new West End production of Christopher Marlowe's Elizabethan play Doctor Faustus at London's The Cuckoo Club on Monday night. Posing together at the show's after-party, Leslie and Harington, both 29, looked polished in complementary white shirts. Harington mat...

'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Trailer Hints At Jon Snow's Death, Or
Wait, isn't Jon Snow dead from last season of Game of Thrones? According to the last Season 6 trailer, Kit Harington's character may have cheated death -- or plays one helluva dead man.

As far as fans are concerned, Jon met his fate in the finale at the hands of his Night's Watch brothers. Since then, the cast of the show, producers, and the like swear by the "Winds of Winter" that Snow is as dead as dead gets. Creators, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, when pressed, say Snow is a goner.

Benioff spoke to Variety recently about the fate of the popular bastard child. He says the proof is in ...

17 Best Jon Snow Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
When Season 6 of 'Game of Thrones' returns April 24, all eyes will be glued to the set to find out the fate of Jon Snow, the leader of the Night's Watch who seemingly met his end in the Season 5 finale. But is Jon Snow really dead or are all of those online rumors on point?

Whether he makes a dramatic return or not, there's no doubting the fact that Snow, portrayed by actor Kit Harington, has been one of the most complicated and influential characters on HBO's hit series through its first five seasons.

'Game Of Thrones' Is Back With Season Six Trailer: Is Jon Snow R
Ready, set, go -- Game of Thrones is back on HBO, and Season 6 is set to air soon! If you allow us to put in our tuppence; all the usual theatrics are back in the new trailer: sex, violence, betrayal -- all what you'd expect in a fantasy drama with elements of alternate histories.

And then, there's a twist of sorts: According to Gizmodo, Kit Harrington's character, Jon Snow, is still somewhat obscure about his role for the sixth season; he is still dropping cryptic hints about his fate in Thrones. However, the writing's on the wall, so to speak.

Spoiler Alert: but not really, sort of --...

Does This 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Art Finally Answer The Jon
The debate over the fate of Jon Snow on 'Game of Thrones' has been raging non-stop among fans since the HBO show's Season 5 finale last spring. But now, the premium cable network may have given fans confirmation about what the character's future holds, courtesy of the first official artwork for Season 6.

Is GOT's Jon Snow Dead Or Not?

'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams On Jon Snow's Fate: 'He's
One of the biggest cliffhangers on the last season of "Game Of Thrones" was whether or not Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) was really dead. Snow appeared to die at the end of season five after being stabbed multiple times -- but of course no one wanted to believe it.

However, Harington was recently spotted in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the hit HBO series is filmed, and fans immediately began speculating that he was there to shoot season six. So he can't be dead, right?

But doesn't he look dead?

Then Harington reportedly told Belgium magazine Humo, "The show is like a double-ed...

Who Died During The 'Game Of Thrones' Season 5 Finale?
Game of Thrones concluded its controversial fifth season Sunday night, and the Internet is ablaze with fans reacting to the multiple dramatic scenes that played out, which included multiple deaths. Don't go any further if you haven't watched last night's episode, dear reader. Here's who (probably) met their demise.

Stannis Baratheon

When you stop and think about it, what happened to self-appointed King Stannis Baratheon wasn't that surprising. The episode opened with half of Stannis' army abandoning him and his wife committing suicide by hanging. But that's what happens when you decide to...

Jon Snow Isn't The Best Dinner Party Guest

Kit Harington guested on Late Night With Seth Meyers Monday night, and the two stars had a little fun with the actor's Game of Thrones character Jon Snow.

Meyers had Harington -- in character -- over for dinner with a handful of other guests, but the man who took the black and joined the Night's Watch proved to be a bit of a downer with his social skills.

"New York is gorgeous in the Spring," one guest says after another tells the story of how he walked to Seth's apartment all the way from Brooklyn because it was so nice outside.

"Spring has officially sprung, says another," before the c...

20 Utterly Sexy British Actors
It's hard to deny it - there's something really attractive about a British accent. We don't know if it's the inflection or the vocabulary (Collywobbles? Bollocks? Gobsmacked?), but whatever it is, it's hot.

Alexander Pettyfer was born in Hertfordshire, England, and has appeared in films including "Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker," "Magic Mike," "I Am Number 4" and "Beastly." He started out as a model, working for brands such as Gap and Burberry.

It was once rumored that the star famously had the phrase "Thank You" tattooed above his crotch, but it's actually just his name. He has dated...

Kit Harington Says 'It's Only Right' To Get Naked For 'Game Of Thrones'

Kit Harington GQ
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has landed the cover of the April issue of GQ magazine, sharing his thoughts on the show's nudity and sex scenes, the violence, and buffing up for his big screen debut in Pompeii.

"It's only right, if you're going to make a show where nudity and sex is a large part of it, that you be a part of that," Harington says about the brief love scene he shot for season three with co-star Rose Leslie.

But don't be fooled -- while that was Rose standing nude in front of him, it wasn't Kit's behind that viewers were seeing.

"When it came down to it I had a broken a...

Last Monday, I attended the screening and red carpet interviews of 'Pompeii' stars Kit Harington ('Game of Thrones') and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ('Thor 2', 'Oz') at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute. 'Pompeii,' directed by Paul W. S. Anderson ('Resident Evil'), stars Carrie-Anne Moss ('Matrix'), Kiefer Sutherland ('24') and Emily Browning ('Lemony Sknickett'). The primary plot surrounds two Gladiators who duel it out for freedom, love and friendship while toiling beneath the shadows of a tremulous Mt. Vesuvius.

I feel Adewale's return to the area is kismet. I was supposed to interview him...

The first full-length trailer for season four of Game of Thrones has finally arrived, revealing new characters, battles, betrayals, struggles and... that there's still three months we have to wait for the April 6 premiere.

Producers packed a ton of stuff into the 1:45 trailer, which debuted Sunday night on HBO and picks up where the events of last season left off.

An aerial view of King's Landing dominates the opening shot of the preview as a dragon's shadow flies over the city. The city is very clean and peaceful looking, leading us to believe this is part of a dream sequence.

Fans of erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" went ballistic earlier this week when the announcements of the two leads in the film adaptation of the book came from none other than author E.L. James herself.

When people found out that Dakota Johnson, the aspiring actress daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, landed the lead role of Anastasia Steele and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam would be play the domineering Christian Grey, they spoke up and started petitions to get the roles re-cast.

Yesterday we brought you the lovely ladies featured on the show, and today we want to see how well the guys clean up after getting all that medieval dirt and grime washed away.

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Season 2, Episode 5 - 'The Ghost Of Harrenhal'

4/30/2012 7:52pm EDT
Game of Thrones
If there’s one thing “Game of Thrones” doesn’t do, is waste time. Last week’s episode closed with shots of sorceress Melisandre birthing some monstrous shadow, a wispy, manlike demon summoned for some mysterious bidding. This week’s episode, “The Ghost of Harrenhaal,” opened rather routinely: Catelyn and Renly were chatting about kingly things while Brienne helped Renly remove his armor. And then, with a fellow swoop, the shadow demon entered, stabbed Renly, and fled. All in the first five minutes.

The abruptness of the deed was cold, indeed. Brienne cried out in horror at the loss of her ...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Season 2, Episode 4 - 'Garden Of Bones'

4/23/2012 8:09pm EDT
Game of Thrones
If last night's episode of "Game of Thrones" doesn't get people talking, I don't know what will.

I'm sure dedicated book fans were expecting those final shots, when sorceress Melisandre gave birth to… a shadow baby? As a non-book reader, I'm murky on the details. But I do know that I finished this episode with an audible exhale of breath. Not only was it the most outwardly fantastical scene of the show so far (with the exception, perhaps, of Dany's dragons), but it was wrought with tension. I was expecting the birth of an illegitimate Stannis baby, after their steamy sex scene last week. W...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Meet Brienne Of Tarth And Margaery Tyrell In 'What Is Dead May Never Die'

4/16/2012 4:30pm EDT
Game of Thrones
"Game of Thrones" is nothing if not expansive (understatement of the century). Characters who get the silent treatment for long drags of time have a tendency to crop up as soon as they’re forgotten. That reinsertion takes centerfold in this week’s installment, with Renly Baratheon’s quest for glory as the overarching storyline. 

Like his brothers, Robert and Stannis, Renly is a noble man, a little too proud and a little too stubborn to assume the leadership role he so rightfully seeks. With bastard child Joffrey at reign, Westeros is in the thick of an ugly war, new enemies and allegiances...

Game of Thrones 2.01 Recap: The North Remembers
In almost every instance, I'm a book girl first, adaptation fan second. It's been a long-standing tradition of mine to visit the original source material for the main course, and then follow up with a nice movie or TV show dessert. But I came to "Game of Thrones" long after the final episode aired last season, when I happened on it On Demand the day after Christmas. I'd been meaning to watch it, but I wanted to read the books first (I owned the first two already, so I had no excuse). But tempted by boredom and the lure of episodes in crystal-clear HD, I decided "what the hell?" and watched ...
