Also, some fun fact : if you have seen the latest « Game of Thrones » season 6 teaser, you may have noticed Ygritte’s face next to Jon’s. You can watch it here !
While waiting for news of Rose, I’ve added 266 HD screencaptures from the season 4 of Game of Thrones to the gallery. Reminder: you can also find screencaptures from Season 2 here and Season 3 here. Expect a new gallery update with old pictures of Rose at various events in the next few days !
Rose was sadly not on the Screen Actor Guild Awards’ red carpet last night (January 30) in Los Angeles alongside her fellow actors and friends, but she did attend the after party that took place afterwards with Kit Harington as the following fan picture posted on Twitter can prove. She was indeed seen at LAX with Kit Harington and Sophie Turner three days ago and was spotted out and about in Los Angeles with Kit the day before yesterday.
[Note: in order to respect Rose’s private life, pictures taken by paparazzi in which Rose isn’t posing won’t be posted on the site or in the gallery, except if they’re taken while she’s doing promo tours or attending events.]
In last August, Rose showed her support to Anthony Nolan, the UK’s blood cancer charity and bone marrow register, by taking part to the #IGiveASpit campaign which urged people to add their names to stem cell donor register. She talked about the campaign here, and you can find some pictures taken to promote it in the gallery here. She said :
‘So far I’ve never had that call to say I’m a match for someone, but if I did, I’d consider it to be the greatest privilege of my life. One of my closest childhood friends, Millie, was diagnosed with leukaemia when she was 19. At the time, Millie campaigned to get more people onto the Anthony Nolan register and I remember feeling so humbled by her bravery and selflessness. She had a stem cell transplant using the best possible match on the register at the time, but it wasn’t the ‘perfect’ match and she sadly relapsed and died a few months later. If there were more young people on the Anthony Nolan register ten years ago, my friend might have found a closer match and might still be here today. So, even if just one person signs up because of the #IGiveASpit campaign, they could be the difference between life and death for someone like Millie.’
Back in October, Rose performed in The Children’s Monologues Anniversary Gala Performance in aid of Dramatic Need alongside many other actors including Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harington and Alfie Allen. Two new photos from the event have been added to the gallery (one from Rose’s rehearsal, the other was taken at the end of the performance). Be sure to check them !
