Daenerys and Jon Snow may have only just met in Game of Thrones after seven seasons of the show, but actors Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington have been friends from the start. “I remember vividly the first time I met Emilia, which was in the hotel bar in Belfast, before season one,” Harington recalled during an interview with Elle. “I was sort of bowled over by this absolutely stunning, petite girl with this wicked sense of humor. We became very fast friends quite quickly.”
Not only are the actors frequently spotted together on red carpets, but the two have glowing reviews of one another, and Clarke is even BFFs with Harington’s fiancé and fellow GoT actor, Rose Leslie.
Of course, just because they’re friends doesn’t mean when Harington and Clarke finally got to film scenes together for the show, it was all smooth sailing. “Both of us were going, ‘Ahhh what are you doing on my set!?’” Clarke joked, adding, “This is weird! There’s another Hair in town, and I don’t like it!”
Harington echoed her sentiments, saying, “We were both kind of freaking out.”
Uh, yeah, so were the fans. Luckily, now that the awkward introductions are out of the way, we can enjoy many a scene to come between Harington and Clarke. We hope. Right?!
