‘Game of Thrones’ co-stars Kit Harington, Rose Leslie wed
LONDON (AP) — Former “Game of Thrones” co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie married Saturday with a church service and a celebration at the bride’s ancestral castle in Scotland.
The couple and guests arrived for the afternoon service at Rayne Church, close to the 900-year-old Wardhill Castle in northeast Scotland, which is owned by Leslie’s family. Harington, wearing a morning suit, and Leslie, in a flowing ivory gown and veil, smiled at members of the public who had gathered outside the church.
Guests included the pair’s “Game of Thrones” co-stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke.
Later the newlyweds were showered with rose petal confetti as they left the church and drove off in a Land Rover festooned with “Just Married” signs to a reception on the castle grounds.
Harington and Leslie, who are both 31, met in 2012 on the set of the HBO fantasy series, where they played a couple as the characters Jon Snow and Ygritte. Leslie left the cast in 2014 and currently stars in U.S. legal drama “The Good Fight.”
The couple announced their engagement with a notice in the Times of London newspaper in September.
The bride’s father, Sebastian Leslie, said Saturday he was “absolutely thrilled” about the wedding.
“It’s an absolutely lovely day for us,” he said.
Teen actress wears ‘I do care’ jacket to protest first lady
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Teen actress Jenna Ortega cares, and says Melania Trump should do the same.
Ortega wore a green, hooded military jacket reading “I do care and u should too” on the red carpet at the Radio Disney Music Awards Friday night, countering the “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket the first lady wore as she left Washington to visit detained migrant children this week.
The 15-year-old, whose credits include “Jane the Virgin” and “Iron Man 3,” told The Associated Press Trump’s jacket showed poor judgment, and she couldn’t believe her advisers allowed her to wear it. Ortega says she cares about migrant children, “and as first lady of the United States, she should too.”
Ortega says she had the jacket made the night before especially for the awards show.
