Engagement, marriages and going public - 2017 was the year for being famous and in love.
2017 has been a great year for celebrity romance - there’s been longtime loves finally tying the knot, secret couples going public and even a royal engagement. So from Meghan and Harry to Kit and Rose and even Katie and Jamie - here are the six celebrity pairings who were our ultimate #couplegoals for 2017.
This week it was revealed that the pair - who played on-screen couple Jon Snow and Ygritte in the HBO series - are set to wed just months after they moved in together. It was only last year that they actually confirmed that they were in a relationship.
Lee Weathers evaluates potential risks in businesses, businesses that blur the lines of what could be deemed ethically correct. When Lee is assigned a new case, she journey's to a remote scientific facility where they focus in engineering human DNA. Lee is informed that their latest project is a scientifically engineered human who's developed at a far greater speed than any human. By one month old, the baby had already begun walking and her physical and mental development continued to appreciate from then.
5 years later, Morgan is almost fully formed and her handlers have grown incredibly attached to the child that they've cared for since birth. However, her human and synthetic bioengineered elements combined with laboratory style upbringing appear to affected Morgan's thought process and she's unable to set conclusive thoughts on how to behave.
When Morgan violently injures one of her doctor/handlers, Lee is brought in to evaluate what the team ought to do with her. Knowing that Lee's decision could mean the end of Morgan, they are distant from Weather's and must decide just how far they will go to save their experiment.

The two were first linked in 2012, but recently rekindled their romance.
‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington has opened up about how he fell in love with girlfriend Rose Leslie, who he first met in 2012 while filming the second season of the HBO fantasy drama. Leslie appeared on the show for three seasons, playing Snow’s love interest Ygritte, before being killed off in season four.
Speaking to Italian Vogue, Harington was asked what his favourite memory was from his time on ‘Game of Thrones’. “The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season,” the 29-year-old actor said.
Their onscreen romance becomes a reality - hopefully without the tragedy.
If Jon Snow returns to 'Game Of Thrones' alive and well, it will just be the cherry on top of this delightful cake. If anything, because we'll get to see more romance between him and Ygritte which will be all the more satisfying now that we know the actors (Kit Harington and Rose Leslie) are together in real life too.
His character's mortality remained ambiguous during his recent appearance on 'The Jonathan Ross Show', despite taking a lie detector test to answer some important questions. But one thing remained blindingly clear: his love for co-star and onscreen lover Rose Leslie.
Vin Diesel makes a bid for yet another franchise with a supernatural action romp that's both deeply ridiculous and enjoyably entertaining. The premise is basically Underworld with witches, and Diesel uses his meathead charm to coast through his role as an immortal warrior. Thankfully, the crazed production design and some solid costars do most of the acting for him. And director Breck Eisner keeps the pace snappy enough to hold the audience's interest, even if we're laughing at it rather than with it.
Diesel plays Kaulder, who in the 13th century killed a nefarious witch queen (Julie Engelbrecht) and was cursed with immortality. Now 800 years later, he's living the high life in Manhattan and leading the Axe and Cross to contain the world's witch population. His assistant is the 36th Dolan (Michael Caine), who has just named the 37th (Elijah Wood) when they're attacked by the mysterious Belial (Olaf Darri Olafsson). He's determined to resurrect the queen and return humanity to the dark ages. So Kaulder sets out to stop him, teaming up with helpful witch Chloe (Rose Leslie), who has some special abilities that aid them as things get increasingly crazed.

Kaulder is an immortal witch hunter, the last of his kind having been cursed with eternal life by his foe the Queen Witch centuries earlier. There was once a time where witches ran afoul of the entire Earth, bringing with them a destructive plague to exterminate humanity. After Kaulder's explosive victory, however, the world was a little safer. Now living in New York - miserable and lonely, while his deceased wife and child are worlds away in the afterlife - Kaulder discovers that it's not over yet. The Queen Witch has returned with a vengeance, but this time it's going to take more than a witch killer to take her out. In order to slay her, you've got to be like her, and so Kaulder must unite with a beautiful young sorceress with the ability to destroy her - even if it's against his better judgement.

For the first ever US Red Nose Day on NBC, all the stops were pulled out. What happens when you combine Chris Martin, Liam Neeson, and a large section of the cast of 'Game of Thrones'?

There was also an appearance from some of the long-past actors like Mark Addy (King Robert Baratheon in Season One), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Jojen Reed) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte), who received a serenade from Kit Harington. Diana Rigg (Olenna Tyrell) also made a brief appearance to discuss how the whole concert was a terrible idea.

It seemed that life was blissfully perfect for young newly married couple Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) as they set out on a glorious honeymoon to a lakeside cabin on the edge of some isolated woodland. It was meant to be an idyllic and romantic trip, but things turn all too strange when Paul wakes in the middle of the night to find Bea missing from her bed. On searching for her, he finds her shivering and naked in the woods, frightened and very confused. The next morning she insists that she is feeling fine after her 'sleepwalking' episode, but when she starts to become increasingly distant and distracted, Paul decides to find out what really happened to her in those woods. She's reluctant to reveal anything and starts to act more and more disturbing, and Paul doesn't know whether it's her he should be protecting or himself.

The time was right, even if the scene took multiple takes to complete
As Game of Thrones season 4 rolls ever closer, Rosie Leslie has been looking back to season 3, which included a rather significant milestone for her as an actress: her first sex scene. For Leslie, it had to happen, but filming the dreaded scene with Kit Harington certainly took enough takes.
“That was my first ever sex scene. You have no idea how many takes that took,” she told Guilty Pleasures, insisting that love scene had to be justified and not just gratuitous.
