Rose Leslie talks Game of Thrones in CNet video interview
By Lightbringer on in Interview.

Rose Leslie was recently in Australia to promote the Game of Thrones Season 3 DVD release, and sat down with CNet Australia to talk all things Game of Thrones.

Rose discusses her progress in reading the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, and the difficulty of portraying an already existing character on screen. She also discusses why Ygritte has become popular among the Thrones fan base, but admits that she tries to stay away from googling herself. She has loved filming and spending time in Iceland, but finds it hard at times to keep a straight face on set while acting to a tennis ball on a pogo stick.

Great interview, thanks to Abyss for the tip!

    Michelle Fairley, Rose Leslie, and Lena Headey should just do a three woman show together where they tell stories and crack each other up laughing. They have too much fun.

    She was great on Downton Abbey, as was another Thrones actor, Ian Glen (Jorah).

    Hollyoak,
    She looked so very young as the maid in Downton Abby, with that spartan uniform. I liked her there and I love her Ygritte.

    Rygar,
    We don’t wanna. It’s ours. Our precious.

    Damn, I’m sad that there hasn’t been an other interview/feature released today. Are the 7 lean years about to start again? :'(

    I will survive! I will keep myself hardy untill the casting of Mads Mikkelsen as Euron is opportune

    I saw the dude who plays Barristan Selmy, sorry, can’t remember his name, in an Irish show on Hulu called Single-Handed. He plays the complete anthesis of the honorable Selmy. He is one evil bastard!

    I’m sorry that you can’t appreciate brilliant acting ;-) Still, I’ll keep going as long as I have inspiration :p Next time just skip the quoted part of my posts :p That will keep the butthurt in check :D

    Casting Mads Mikkelsen as Euron? Frankly my dear I do give a damn

    Lovely gal/actress/character/voice.

    Was that a down-tempo cover of the X-Files theme playing in the background? How strange.

    That’s cool that she is going to be on the second season of Utopia. I just finished the first season a couple weeks a go and it’s a really fun little series.

    She’s okay to google herself, given that the biggest complaint about her is the very popular Game of Thrones complaint, “She’s too pretty!”…which obviously stopped after she came on, not because she stopped being pretty(:P) but because she was awesome in the role.

    Bob,

    Good to see another fan of Utopia here. Let’s hope HBO and David Fincher will do the US remake justice.

    I’m giving her lots of nerd points for differentiating “at the Wall” / “beyond the wall.” Often when interviewers make small gaffes the interviewee lets it go, but not the ever-knowlegable Ygritte. :-P
