Kit Harington ‘bowled over’ by Emilia Clarke when they first met

Cape Town - Kit Harington has described meeting Emilia Clarke for the first time and finding her “stunning”.

And it’s not hard to imagine, if their first electrifying meeting as Jon Snow and Daenarys Targaryen in season six of Game of Thrones is anything to go by.

Speaking to Elle magazine, the 30-year-old GoT star recalled meeting his co-star for the first time.

"I remember vividly the first time I met Emilia, which was in the hotel bar in Belfast, before season one.

"I was sort of bowled over by this absolutely stunning, petite girl with this wicked sense of humour. We became very fast friends quite quickly," he told Elle.

The pair sparked dating rumours after that meeting.

This hasn’t been helped by pictures surfacing from a 2012 Rolling Stone photoshoot snapped prior to the start of filming on the now-popular series.

During the shoot the two held hands and even kissed on camera, which made GoT fans speculate they may actually be an item for real.

Emilia denied the rumours and said, “It literally makes me want to cry, it's so far from the truth."

And for all Jongritte - Jon Snow and Ygritte (Rose Leslie) - fans, don’t worry the two lovebirds are still happily engaged according to PEOPLE magazine.

But just can’t help but fantasise about a world where Daenarys and Jon are an actual thing.
