Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke's brewing tandem in the hit television series "Game of Thrones" is undeniably popular, with a few rumors even saying that their love story is slowly heading to reality. However, is Jon Snow's real-life girlfriend Rose Leslie affected by this?

As the rumored budding romance between Harington, 30, and Clarke, 30, continue to surface in the headlines and social media outlets, the actor's real girlfriend has remained quiet about her true stand on the issue, leaving many curious about her true feelings whenever she bumps into another rumor involving the two.

While the brewing rumors about Harington and Clarke's alleged romance behind the camera have continued to roll out, the fact that the actor is happily in a relationship with Rose Leslie could be more than enough to debunk the false claims.

Amidst the fuzzy talks and various break-up rumors, Leslie and Harington's relationship has remained strong. Moreover, the 30-year old actress, who played the role of Ygritte in "Game of Thrones" Season 3 and 4, recently shared her standpoint about Harington's portrayal as Jon Snow.

Seemingly showing her full support, Leslie praised her boyfriend's job well-done portrayal of his famous character as Jon Snow, TV Guide reported. Apparently, her statement temporarily shuts the break-up rumors down about her and Harington.

"He's definitely tough enough. I think that he's incredibly just and he'd make a brilliant king." she said.

While it's true that Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen will always have that undying chemistry in "Game of Thrones," their popular romance is just that and nothing more.

In fact, it can be recalled that it was Emilia Clarke who first confirmed Kit Harington and Rose Leslie's relationship on-set was legit. Furthermore, previous speculations even added that she happens to be a fan of the couple's low-key yet genuine relationship. 

Rose Leslie has been in an on-and-off status with Kit Harington since 2012, but they had officially confirmed their relationship in 2016.
