Kit Harington has responded to claims made by a Russian model about a extramarital affair she had with him, addressing the compromising pictures she released as well.
Recently, Russian model Olga Vlaslova released nude pictures of the Game of Thrones star, claiming that this was proof of the one month affair she had with Harington after his engagement and marriage to Rose Leslie.
Vlaslova said she met Harington in Luxemborg, after which the two slept together on several occasions.
A rep for Harington said, “The allegations in this story are completely false. He’s never even been to Luxembourg nor has he ever met Olga Vlaslova.”
Harington and Rose got married in June 2018. They met on the set of Game of Thrones in 2012 and confirmed that they were together six years later in 2016. The 31 year old actor proposed to Leslie in September 2017.
The couple wed in Aberdeen-shire at Leslie family’s Ward-hill Castle in north east Scotland. The wedding vows took place in the castle’s drawing room.
However, since it could only fit 80 guests, the reception took place in a large erected marquee located on the castle grounds.
Game of Thrones cast members, including Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) arrived in Aberdeen, Scotland a few days before the wedding, and all attended the wedding of their costars.
Speaking to Vogue Italy before the wedding, Harington said, “”The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love [with Rose Leslie].”
The stars played the famous on-screen lovers, Jon Snow and Ygritte, while on Game of Thrones together.
He added, “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it’s becomes very easy to fall in love.”
While rejoicing over his win for Outstanding Drama Series, Harington said, “I met my wife in this show. In that way, it gave me my future family and my life from here on in. That’s the main thing it did for me.”
Leslie left Game of Thrones in 2014, and Harington stayed on.
