Couples are coming: The real life partners of ‘Game of Thrones’ characters
Every fan of a series has, at some point in their obsession, wished that their favorite on-screen characters would get involved off-screen, and it’s no different for ‘Game of Thrones.’ In fact, it might even be more intense with this show due to the sheer amount of spit being swapped between characters. Click through to discover the real-life partners of the phenomenal series’ stars.
Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte)
Though protagonists Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryn (played by Emilia Clarke) eventually fulfilled people’s fantasies, Ygritte was the first to claim Jon Snow’s heart—until, of course, she died in his arms.
Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister)
One of the most popular characters from the show, Tyrion Lannister got involved with Shae (Sibel Kekilli), but soon caught her cheating with his father. He wasn’t happy about it, and she died…
In real life, Peter Dinklage, who was previously awarded an Emmy for his performance as Tyrion, is happily married to actress Erica Schmidt. They have two kids.
Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo)
The character Khal Drogo married Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), but the warrior got seriously injured in combat and ended up dying just when audiences started to like him.
Before becoming known worldwide as Khal Drogo of ‘Game Of Thrones,’ Momoa was already together with actress Lisa Bonet, ex-wife of the rocker Lenny Kravitz. The couple has two children together, and he’s a great stepfather to Zoë Kravitz.
