‘The Evening Standard’ Interview

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)

Rose supports “World Cancer Day”

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.’

On 4 February, Antholy Nolan is uniting with Breast Cancer Care, Movember Foundation UK and Cancer Research UK to raise lifesaving awareness for World Cancer Day. They have posted a picture of Rose showing her support by wearing a Unity Band on their twitter today.
