Actors try their best to get into character on set, and all the romantic feelings might be overwhelming within the scenario. Sometimes on-screen heat finds its way into real-world relationships.
Bright Side gathered the hottest TV couples who did not have to act their romantic feelings on set because all the chemistry was real.
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie — Game of Thrones
One of the main love lines in the 2nd season of the popular TV series was the one between the bastard Jon Snow and the wildling girl Ygritte. Wasting no time, the actors made their romance real in their off-screen lives.
According to Kit Harington, if you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love. The wonderful Icelandic scenery, where the shooting took place, added some heat to the growing romance.
Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin — Once Upon a Time
While shooting the fantasy series Once Upon a Time, Ginnifer and Josh felt their attraction grow into something more than just a fairy tale between Snow White and Prince Charming.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher — That ’70s Show
In 1998, at the beginning of their acting careers, Mila and Ashton shot a love storyline in the TV series. When the first episode of the show aired, Mila was just 14, and the on-screen kiss with Ashton was actually her first kiss ever. It took many years for both of them to understand that they were meant for each other. The couple married in 2014, and now they feel even happier raising a daughter.
Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan — Outlander
Rumors about Caitriona and Sam’s relationship status follow the couple everywhere: either they were seen holding hands or attended a social event together.
