Rose Leslie explains how her marriage to Kit Harington inspired her character in The Time Traveller’s Wife

Rose Leslie and Kit Harington are one of the cutest celebrity couples who fell in love while filming for The iron Throne together and were also an on-screen couple as Ygritte and Jon Snow. They’ve come a long way together since then, with Leslie helping Kit with his alcohol addiction issues. While Kit was on the road to rehabilitation, the couple welcomed their first child, which boosted Harington’s mental health. Leslie recently opened up about how Kit inspired her role in The time traveler’s wife.

Leslie plays the role of Claire Abshire, and while speaking to Extra, opened up about how her marriage to Kit inspired her character. She says, “I think being in a relationship and knowing you have a supportive partner can only make you feel more secure in yourself, and therefore hopefully grow together into two more grounded people. .”

Rose also explained how the characters’ chemistry would have been different from the 2009 feature film of the same name, which starred Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, because it was produced episodically. She continued, “We have more time to dig deeper into the characters and who they are and the kind of complexities they then have with each other.”
