Game of Thrones, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie, Christine McVie, Fleetwood Mac

Game of Thrones reunion!

Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie were spotted at Wednesday night’s (March 13) Fleetwood Mac concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Stevie later shared the following picture of her and Fleetwood Mac bandmate Christine McVie posing with the power couple backstage.

Game of Thrones fans know all too well that Rose’s character Ygritte died tragically in the arms of Kit’s character Jon Snow — the emotional highlight of Season 4. Before she faded away, Ygritte uttered the now-iconic and much-examined line “You know nothing, Jon Snow,” which spawned a slew of the most hilarious memes.

But as fate would have it, Ygritte and Jon Snow (Kit and Rose, of course) would reunite in real life by…getting married! Everybody loves a happy ending.

You can read Billboard‘s write-up of the concert encounter below.


She wouldn’t say Kit Harington’s name… but it was definitely Kit Harington.

Rock legend Stevie Nicks has long professed her Game of Thrones fandom; the show’s first season helped her grieve following her mother’s death, and she has copped to writing Thrones-inspired poetry. On Wednesday night (Mar. 13) at Fleetwood Mac’s concert at Newark, N.J.’s Prudential Center, Nicks dedicated the band’s “Landslide” to a “special” guest in attendance — a Game of Thrones actor whom she wouldn’t identify by name, out of fear that he would get mobbed by fans in the audience.

“They really should have cast me as his mother,” Nicks lamented to the crowd. “Oh well, too late.” She then toasted her favorite “dragon king” before performing the iconic song.

Although Nicks never let it slip who she was shouting out onstage, some social media sleuthing revealed that Kit Harington — aka Jon Snow, King of the North, Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen’s new boo — was in attendance at the Fleetwood Mac show, rocking out alongside his wife, Thrones actress Rose Leslie.

The “dragon king” line makes sense, although does Nicks really wish she could have played (spoiler!) Lyanna Stark, out of all the characters? She would have made a great Melisandre, to be honest!

The final season of Game of Thrones debuts on HBO on Apr. 14. Nicks and Harington will both be busy before then: Nicks will enter the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist on Mar. 29 after previously entering as part of Fleetwood Mac, and yesterday, Harington was announced as the host of the Apr. 6 episode of Saturday Night Live.
