Kit Harington has said his favourite Game Of Thrones scene featuring his wife Rose Leslie was the one where she died.

Leslie’s character Ygritte was killed off in the fourth series of the fantasy drama.

She died in the arms of her love interest Jon Snow, who is played by her real life partner Harington.

The actor told America’s People magazine: “I liked her death. I know, it sounds bizarre.

“I thought she nailed that.”

He went on: “And it’s the first time in Thrones that slow motion was used and I think it’s a beautiful, cradling moment as this battle is raging in the background.

“It was one of those incredible shots.”

Harington and Leslie confirmed they were an item in early 2016, and tied the knot at a church in Aberdeenshire in 2018.
