Rose Leslie Game Of Thrones

Leslie portrayed the role of Ygritte on 10 October 2011 in Game of Thrones. She joined the cast as a guest star for the second season after she was considered for her performance on Downton Abbey. After being cast, Leslie dove into the books, and was on book four by the start of Season 3. She also took archery lessons, so it would look more realistic when Ygritte handles a bow.

She later specified that after being cast she read as much as she could to research the role, and got up to book four by the time she began filming in Season 2, though she was too busy afterwards to finish reading the rest of book four as well as the recently released fifth novel. Either way, Ygritte dies at the end of the third novel, so she finished reading the ones relevant to her character. As a result Leslie knew how Ygritte would die even before she began filming.

Actors commonly film their scenes in any given season out of order, for instance, if the producers want the new character’s introduction scene to work particularly well so the audience receives them well, they often film their introduction scene near the end of filming, after the actor has had more time to get comfortable in the role. This was not, however, the case with Rose Leslie.

Her first scene playing Ygritte also happened to be the first scene that Ygritte is introduced in, season 2’s “The Old Gods and the New”. Moreso, she ultimately filmed Ygritte’s final scene last where Ygritte’s death scene occurs in Season 4’s “The Watchers on the Wall”. As she explained at the San Diego Comic-Con 2014 panel she felt it was very fortunate that it was also her last day filming, because her death scene in Jon Snow’s arms was so emotionally draining that it would have been difficult to subsequently come back and film scenes from earlier episodes in the season.

After Leslie finished filming her final scene, weapons master Tommy Dunne presented her with a case containing Ygritte’s bow for her to keep. Leslie entered into a long-term relationship with co-star Kit Harington, who played her character’s on-screen love interest Jon Snow. On September 26, 2017, it was announced that they are engaged.
