A new lovely still of Rose in Morgan has been released, as well as a short interview in which she talks about her character, psychoanalist Amy :
In the gripping, fast-paced action “Morgan” directed by Luke Scott, Kate Mara along with Rose Leslie and Michelle Yeoh star in a a thrilling, visceral and intense movie-going experience that explores the dangers of reproducing a human being far more advance than its creators.
In “Morgan,” Rose Leslie plays psychoanalyst Amy who also has a strong connection to Morgan, though her love for it, is “narcissistic, because Amy is mirroring who she is onto Morgan,” explains Rose Leslie, who portrays Amy. “It’s a scary, double-edged sword in the way she loves Morgan because Amy sees herself in Morgan. Amy truly believes she’s embodying Morgan with a soul. For Amy, it’s all about possessiveness.”
The judgment of all the team members has been affected not only by their attachment to their experiment, but by their isolation from the outside world. “They’ve all been in this bubble for five years, so their sense of reality is diminished,” says Leslie. “They spend almost all their time watching Morgan, as if she were in this exotic fishbowl.” (source)

Rose has been set to play the lead in Haunted, the DreamWorks thriller that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is directing:
Last week, the news broke that Alfre Woodard will be starring in gothic ghost story Haunted. Now we know at least one person who will joining her in the cast, as Game Of Thrones veteran Rose Leslie has signed on to play the lead.
Loosely based on Henry James’ Turn Of The Screw, the film will see a young woman (Leslie) arriving to work at a wealthy estate, but who soon starts to believe that the house is haunted. And things take a turn for the creepier when she starts to suspect that the children in her care are possessed. As for Woodard, all we know about her character so far is that she’ll be someone who already works at the mansion.
This one comes from a team with real horror chops including director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and Conjuring writers Chad and Carey Hayes.
Leslie, who tackled terror with 2014’s Honeymoon, will also face a scary situation in sci-fi thriller Morgan, which arrives here on September 2.
Back in November when Rose was in Marseille where she attented the Hero Festival 2015, she was photographed by Florian Launette for the press. A few pictures from this photoshoot were in the gallery, and I have just added some exclusive new HQ ones. Be sure to check them here :
THESTAR.CO.UK – Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie is playing another feisty young woman on stage in Sheffield. Rose played warrior Ygritte in the hit series, the love interest of central character Jon Snow, until the character was killed off a couple of years ago.
She said: “I had such a wonderful time. I went to Comic-Con in San Diego, which was a most extraordinary experience and so enjoyable. We did a Q&A in front of 6,000 fans.”
Big-scale TV is just about as different as it gets to theatre in a small studio. Rose is in Sheffield to co-star with Sara Stewart in Mike Bartlett’s play Contractions, which looks at what happens when a young office worker breaks the company rules by starting a relationship with a co-worker. Her character Emma comes under the scrutiny of her manager, who ruthlessly analyses the relationship. Rose said: “Emma starts off as very spirited and ambitious but not in a ruthless way. She’s a determined young woman. She’s intelligent and is blissfully unaware of the troubles that are about to hit her in the way that the corporation bleeds into her life with its needs to know about her personal life. It manipulates her to where she is a shell of the woman she was at the beginning.”
The staging, with the two women enclosed in a disc of light, really adds to the atmosphere, even down to the furniture, said Rose. “Sara has a really comfy chair and mine is really uncomfortable with a hard back! It feeds into the character. » She added: “The beauty of the way that Lisa’s staging is it’s in its own entity. It’s a circular stage in the round and we don’t ever really step outside of it.”
Rose said that was a perfect way to portray the sparring dialogue between the two actors, written by rising star playwright Mike Bartlett. Mike Bartlett’s play Bull premiered at the Crucible Studio last year wand King Charles III has just been seen at the Lyceum, starring Robert Powell. He also wrote TV thriller Doctor Foster, about a woman’s reaction to her husband’s affair, which is about to go into a second series featuring Rose’s co-star Sara Stewart.
Rose said: “It’s very much me and her playing a game of chess and dancing around each other. Emma has the arrogance of youth and believes she is on the same level as the manager but she gets very chewed up and spat out at the end.” Contractions continues at the Crucible Studio until July 16. Box office: at the theatre, call 0114 249 6000 or go online at Sheffield Theatres (source)
I have been running Rose Leslie Source for more than 2 years on Tumblr and almost 6 months here, and I wanted to make a gift to you fellow fans of Rose for following on the social media accounts, for being so many to visit this site every day, for your support, for your help, and to celebrate Rose’s ‘amazingness’. As a gift to you and to cheer you up when you feel down, I made a compilation of Rose’s funniest and cutest moments. I hope you’ll enjoy and don’t hesitate to share it!
SHEFFIELD TELEGRAPH – In the TV epic fantasy series she played feisty Wilding Ygritte with a broad Northern accent but her natural voice reflects her background from an aristocratic Scottish family, a public school education and drama school training. She has come to Sheffield to appear in the regional premiere of Contractions, a play by Mike Bartlett in which an employee undergoes a grilling from her manager because she has started a relationship with a colleague.
The actor says what immediately drew her to the project was the quality of writing by the Olivier Award-winner and creator of TV hit Doctor Foster – “and then hearing that Contractions was being put on up here in Sheffield, I’ve always longed to work at the Crucible.“
“It is brilliantly funny but also appalling at the same time. It’s quite rare to come across in one sentence something so far-fetched and yet plausible. It’s a brilliant intense piece, reading it you don’t come up for air.” Her experience of the office environment has not been as brutal as that experienced by her character, Emma. “I’ve done reception work in London in between jobs in order to balance auditions but the spotlight never shone on me to this extent. After this, there’s no way I am ever going to set foot in an office,” she laughs.
It is unlikely Rose Leslie will need to resort to that, however, with her Game of Thrones profile. “When I auditioned for season two it was not as established as it is now and in no way the phenomenon it has become,” she explains. “Which is good because in hindsight I would have been petrified at the audition.” And then the role turned out to be a physical experience. “Iceland was a cold and rough terrain, there was a lot of running and climbing up ice walls. It was a different type of intensity from something like this.”
Eventually Ygritte got an arrow through the heart. “I was killed by a wee lad at the end of season four when there was a big penultimate battle scene. I was always aware that she would perish because I had read the books before I started. I am still recognised because of the ginger hair but the fact I died a few years ago people are beginning to say, who is that chick?”
That may be a touch disingenuous given the fact that the celebrity media remain fascinated by her real-life relationship with co-star Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow. “But in the past it’s always been an awesome experience because a lot of the fans if they do come up are very loyal and passionate and wanting to talk about the show and I think that’s an accolade to Game of Thrones as a whole.” (source)
