THE EVENING STANDARD – Rose Leslie and Kit Harington played lovers in Game of Thrones and are dating in real life – but the actress isn’t keen to work with the actor again.
Leslie, 29 – who played Ygritte alongside Harington’s Jon Snow – said she is a big believer in having your own individual projects and not being associated with another person.
Speaking to Standard Online about teaming up on screen she said: “I think we leave it at that. We had such a fabulous time working together on Thrones.
“I think it’s important to do your own projects that mean a lot to you individually rather than be associated with someone else. I’m a big believer in doing your own thing.”
Leslie recently revealed that she was unaware that Harington would be returning to the show after his character died at the end of series five.
The actress said she was “ecstatic” after Harington finally revealed all, but joked that she is “going to have to have words” with him for keeping it a secret for so long.Speaking about her Thrones alter ego – who was killed by an arrow and subsequently burned by Snow after dying in his arms – she said she would not like to see her resurrected.
I’m now a little pile of ash,” she said. “The writers are being incredibly loyal to the books and the way it’s developed Jon Snow needs to be on his own and take charge of his own life. I think it’s a good thing that she died.” (source)
