A football player has spotted former “Game of Thrones” stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie in a London hotel recently. But just as fast as they were found, the rumored couple apparently quickly escaped when asked for a picture.
According to a report on the Liverpool Echo , Victor Anichebe was ecstatic to have discovered the Jon Snow actor and Ygritte actress in the same hotel he stayed in as he was a big “Game of Thrones” fan. The excitement turned into dismay though when he approached them.
“Bumped into Kit Harington & Rose Leslie at my hotel and being a big #GOT fan asked nicely for a pic,” he tweeted .
“Shame that they refused & felt to act the way they did,” he added about the Jon Snow and Ygritte stars. “I would never decline someone a picture as without fans we’re nothing.”
In the end, Anichebe seemed like a good sport after the incident as he joked of hoping that the actor’s Jon Snow character was indeed really dead in the show in jest.
Fans and followers of the football player also expressed their sentiments over the incident with some even saying the rumored pair might just be hiding their apparent relationship as gossip about them continue to circulate.
It was only last month when the Jon Snow and Ygritte actors were also spotted in London together as reported by Lainey Gossip . Rumors of a reconciliation between the pair immediately buzzed as they were pictured holding hands.
The former “Game of Thrones” stars have yet to confirm the reconciliation rumors and even the past dating rumors about them.
“Oh no,” the Ygritte actress said in 2014 as quoted by Mail Online . “Don’t ask me about Kit. I’d rather not say. We are still very close.”
“All rumour and myth,” Kit Harington also told the Evening Standard last year as well. “Me and Rose [Leslie] are very, very close and very good friends. And continue to be, actually. She’s wonderful. But no, no love affair.”
