That’s right folks, the next season of Game of Thrones is going to be the last. The epic fantasy series is going to air its 8th and final season this year. But the ending doesn’t have to be a sad time in history. We can chose to celebrate the series and the cast instead of mourn the end of an era.
And what better way to commemorate such an epic TV show than to celebrate the real life romances of the cast of Game of Thrones. Sure, the plot line of the series calls for some unwholesome romances between certain individuals. But we assure you that the cast members in reality are not dating anyone they’re related to!
Each and every one of these couples is as sweet as can be. And the sweetest might just have to be the relationship between Jason Momoa and his wife, who he’s been hoping to marry since he was a kid! No, we’re not kidding!
But let’s start with our beloved Sansa. Who’s she dating?
Sophie Turner plays Sansa Stark, a young noblewoman, Game of Thrones, which is her first TV role. It was her drama teacher who encouraged her to audition for the part, and she dyed her blonde hair auburn for the role. She was 15 when she got the part and has been in every season since the beginning.
In 2012, her role as Sansa landed her a nomination for the Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a TV Series – Supporting Young Actress. She’s starred in X-Men: Apocalypse, Another Me, and The Thirteenth Tale.
And she’s engaged to…
The pair have been together since 2016 and got engaged almost a year later. The now 21 year old is engaged to American singer and actor Joseph Adam Jones (Joe Jonas) who is 28.
Joe and Sophie first started dating in June 2016, having met through mutual friends. Joe quickly fell for the actress and popped the question in October 2017. The couple is pretty serious since they already adopted a husky puppy.
Let’s move on to the next Game of Thrones star!
Kit Harington plays Jon Snow on the show and his audition is one to be remembered. The night before his audition, Harington was at a McDonald’s late at night with a woman he was dating and after one thing led to another with another couple near them, he got into a fist fight.
So he had to go to his audition the next day with a black eye! But he thinks that it may be part of what landed him the role. “I think that man who punched me in the face may have helped me get the job,” he said. “So if you’re watching, thank you.”
Wanna know who Kit is married to?…
Rose, a fellow GOT cast member, and Kit married in 2018 in a castle in Aberdeenshire. Their relationship came started after they started working together on the show in Iceland.
He said: “Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love… If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
Maisie, like Sophie Turner, made her acting debut on Game of Thrones. They play sisters on set, and friends in real life. Maisie has won a Ewwy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, the Portal Award for Best Supporting Actress – Television and Best Young Actor, and the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor.

Maisie has been in a relationship with Ollie Jackson for about 2 years. Ollie isn’t in the entertainment industry and so not much is known about him. But Maisie had this to say about their relationship: “People feel it’s strange that someone who’s famous can go out with someone who’s normal,” she said.
“I don’t meet anyone else. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but I don’t go to all these parties. I don’t meet the other young, male actors… I just like normal people, I guess.”
Peter, who portrays Tyrion in the show, has won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film in 2011.
