The most important job Ill ever have is about to finish, he said in a recent interview with InStyle , adding: Well, not the most. Hopefully, Ill be a father.

Harington is married to actress Rose Leslie, who he met when she was cast as his love interest, the wildling Ygritte, back in Season 2. If youre already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love, Harington told Vogue Italia back in 2016.

Jon and Ygritte didnt exactly get a happy ending together in the world of the show (after an incredibly tumultuous relationship, Ygritte died in Jons arms), but their real life romance appears to be going far more smoothly. However, Harington isnt sure whether theyll ever appear on-screen together after Game of Thrones.

I think almost the worst thing about falling in love with Rose and marrying her is that its going to be very hard to work with her again, he said. Working opposite her was one of the highlights of my life and career. I dont know when, if ever, Im going to get to do that again, because were married now, and its hard to work opposite your wife.

Acting with Leslie might be off the table now, but considering that offhand remark about becoming a father, it sounds like Harington has another project in mind for them as a couple.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO on Sunday 14 April.
