Game of Thrones might be over again for a year and a half but it doesn’t stop us from obsessing over the show. A lot of us were rooting for a romance between Dany and Jon this season, but have you ever wondered who the cast actually go home to after filming has finished? Dany and Jon are definitely NOT in a relationship in real-life, they’re just very good friends. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) has been dating Rose Leslie (Ygritte) since 2012, Sansa Stark is seeing Joe Jonas and Khal Drogo is married to Lenny Kravitz’s ex-wife Lisa Bonet.
I bet you won’t guess who Gwendoline Christie is with though….
Let’s take a look at these 17 Game of Thrones characters & their other halves.
1. Rose Leslie and Kit Harington (Ygritte and Jon Snow)
Rose and Jon didn’t come out as a couple until 2016 so no one is entirely sure how long they’ve been dating but the pair moved in together this year. Their relationship has reportedly been very on and off but that could just be a lot of speculation.
“On a serious level, I wouldn’t tell the press if I was in a relationship or not. I wouldn’t ever reveal that, because it takes you down a certain road… I have no desire to be courting the press with my love life. It’s not my job, it’s not who I am — and I actually think it’s more fun for everyone to speculate. The minute I start telling people things are true or not true, then it’s just boring.”
2. Peter Dinklage and his wife, actress Erica Schmidt (Tyrion Lannister)
The pair tied the knot in 2005, they then welcomed their first child, Zelig into the world in 2011. They’re expecting their second child this year.
3. Jason Momoa and his wife, actress Lisa Bonet (Khal Drogo)
Jason met Lisa in 2005 after a common friend introduced them to each other. Moma and Lisa married in 2007 meaning he became the step-father to Zoe Kravitz. Jason and Lisa have two children together, their names being Nakoa and Mana, which stand for “the warriors” and “strength/spirit”.
4. Kristofer Hivju and his wife, journalist Gry Molvær Hivju (Tormund Gianstbane)
Kristofer and Gry married in 2015 after being in a long term relationship. He is known for taking his family on set with him and an example of that was when he took his wife and two daughters to meet Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson on set of “Fast and Furious 8”.

The pair are believed to have met at a New Years Eve party in 2013 and the couple have been going strong ever since. Giles designed a Star-Wars themed dress and outfit for her.
‘It’s a pleasure to work with your partner,’
‘She’s a fantastic muse. She’s a character herself, and her trail of various characters is brilliant – she’s pretty transformative, which is always an interesting thing from a designer’s point of view.’
8. Iain Glen and actress Charlotte Emmerson (Jorah Mormont)
Iain met his partner in 2005 after divorcing his ex-wife Susannah Harker in 2004. Iain and Charlotte have two daughters, Mary and Juliet.

9. Carice Van Houten and actor Guy Pearce (Melisandre)
The couple announced the birth of their baby boy last year with Guy posting: ‘A cute little package arrived and told us his name’s, Monte Pearce. We think we’re gonna keep him. Placenta smoothie anyone?’
The pair live in Europe together with Carice admitting that she doesn’t enjoy the “Hollywood life”.
“I have seen Hollywood, and although I have nothing against it, it’s not my kind of life. My agent is shocked that I want to stay in Europe,” adding, “If Hollywood offers me a great part, of course I’ll take it, but I just don’t want to live there”
10. Maisie Williams and Ollie Jackson (Arya Stark)
Maisie and her boyfriend have been dating since 2015, the pair met in school and Ollie isn’t famous.
“People feel it’s strange that someone who’s famous can go out with someone who’s normal,” Williams told InStyle. “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.”
11. Jacob Anderson and actress Aisling Loftus (Greyworm)
The couple have been together for about 5 years and they revealed their deep and happy love.
12. Sophie Turner and singer Joe Jonas (Sansa Stark)
Sophie and Joe have been dating for a while now but they’ve both noted that they’d rather keep their relationship private.
“I found it easier to date someone who understands the industry or is in that world,” she said. “You realize that you’re not going to see each other all the time. And you don’t feel like a jerk when you’re like, ‘My publicist says I can’t do this.’ ”
“To have someone who understands what you’re going through, who’s the same age, who came from pretty much the same background — that is so rare,” she said. “And we’ve had the same struggles in terms of dealing with body image and puberty and growing up in the public eye. But I found my strength in her, and I think she found her strength in me.”
