In a castle, in the cold north, Jon Snow has forsaken his Night’s Watch vows and married the wildling Ygritte, or at least the actors who play them have. 

That’s right Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie, both of whom starred in the mega-successful fantasy series Game of Thrones, have become husband and wife at last.

The couple married at Rose’s childhood home Wardhill castle where eighty members of their closest family and friends, including co-stars Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage, gathered for the celebration.

Rose and Kit met in 2011 while working on the second season of Game of Thrones, where they played enemies turned lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte, and they’re believed to have started dating soon after.

There were rumours that the pair had split up but they proved false when they got engaged in September last year.

A source at the time told :

 Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle down a bit first. After moving in together in January he felt it was the right time to take the next step.

The couple later announced their engagement in The Times newspaper.

The couple’s ad read:

The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcesterhire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.

Kit Harrington recently revealed that his and Rose’s wedding day, unfortunately, coincided with one of the last days of shooting on the Eight and final season of Games of Throne.

In order to get his friends on the show the time off work, he had to call the producers and ask them if they minded shutting down filming for a day so his guests could attend.

He told Jonathan Ross:

I rang up [the producer] and I said, ‘I’m getting married and it’s your fault actually’… I think for the final season he is so stressed that he’s reached that peaceful level.

I was like, ‘You need to factor in a Game of Thrones wedding by the way.’ They have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down.

Luckily the producer said yes although if we’re honest we think he was probably just grateful for a day off as well.

According to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on the show, everyone’s been working harder than ever to give the show a send-off fans will love.

He told :

We’ve worked harder than ever before. We spent twice as much shooting these six episodes than we did on two full seasons before. No expense has been spared. We’ve gone all in.

Fans will have to take Nikolaj’s word for it for now though as the last six episodes won’t air until next year, but at least they can take some satisfaction from the news that each of the episodes will be feature length.

Not only that there is apparently at least one Game of Thrones spin-off on the way as well, so we won’t saying goodbye to Westeros for a while yet.

Ruby Rose cast as The CW’s Batwoman

The CW has found its Batwoman!

The network has cast model-actress Ruby Rose to play Kate Kane a.k.a. Batwoman. The character will be introduced in the network’s annual DC crossover event this winter, plus the network is also developing a stand-alone series around the character.

The casting is an impressive name. Rose rose to fame after joining the cast of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black in season 3 as Stella Carlin, and has had stand-out movie performances in Pitch Perfect 3, XXX: The Return of Xander Cage and John Wick: Chapter 2 (where she had a rather intense fight scene with Keanu Reeves that bodes well for battling crime on the streets of Gotham). She’s also in the upcoming killer shark movie The Meg.

If Batwoman is picked up to series, the openly gay Rose — who identifies as gender fluid — will topline the first TV series focusing on an LGBT superhero. “Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence,” reads the official logline. “But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

But first, Rose will make her debut in this year’s DC crossover event in December, which will include Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl (but not DC’s Legends of Tomorrow).

The prospective Batwoman series will be written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who is also executive producing alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns.

Green Soul: Healthy options and a bar in Spring Garden

Robert and Benjamin Bynum have taken over the former Alla Spina in Spring Garden with the latest iteration of Green Soul, the healthy, soul food-inspired restaurant they launched seven years ago in West Oak Lane and shortly after migrated to Chestnut Hill before closing last month.

Green Soul is at 1410 Mount Vernon St., next door to South, their Southern jazz-theme restaurant at 600 N. Broad. Soft opening was last week, and full operation (including lunch) is about a week away.

The Bynums inherited the room’s great bones — high ceilings, loft seating beneath a well-lit bar, floor-to-ceiling garage doors — white-washing the brick walls, covering up Alla Spina’s graffiti, and adding reclaimed wood and greenery, as well as oversize quotations. (They’re not all earnest. While there’s Maya Angelou’s “We need Joy as we need air. We need Love as we need water. We need each other as we need the earth we share.” there’s also an eyerollingly cheeky directional sign to the restroom: “MEN to the left because WOMEN are always right.”)

They’re emphasizing a green approach.

The new Green Soul, by dint of its location, has become more ambitious. By day, it sticks to its fast-casual roots. The Bynums installed a self-ordering kiosk. You walk in, punch in your order, and sit in the dining room. At 5 p.m., the restaurant switches to full-service dining as the kiosk is tucked into a cleverly designed cabinet.

Menu, from chef Laurel Weitman, hits the local/seasonal/sustainable notes — a raw vegetable plate with green goddess dressing, mango jerk salmon atop a salad, Moroccan-style chicken, chicken tacos, the Impossible Burger (as well as a house-made black bean burger), and a “Soul Bowl” of root vegetables, farro, and barley. There’s no beef or pork.

Samples from Green Soul: Moroccan chicken, salmon on a salad, Heart & Soul cocktail with Dad’s Hat rye, sweet vermouth, beets, pineapple, and apple.

Bar list features mostly local spirits, with a good number of Pennsylvania wines and beers. All wine and beer are on draft — a bid to reduce waste. Cocktails even seem to hew to the healthful ethos: a pomegranate kombucha cosmo on draft, a sweet potato maple Manhattan (containing house-made sweet potato syrup and New Liberty bourbon), and a matcha drink combining Stateside vodka, matcha green tea, soy milk, and honey.

Like South next door, there’s a stage.

“We’re jazz next door,” explained Harry Hayman, the general manager. “Here, we can be anything else.” and performers include singer-songwriter musicians, poetry readings, and the like.

The Bynums, who burst onto the local scene in the 1980s with the jazz club Zanzibar Blue, also own Relish in West Oak Lane and Warmdaddy’s in Pennsport, besides South.

Green Soul’s hours for now are 5 p.m. to late night Tuesday to Sunday. Lunch (11 a.m.) is due to begin next week.
