MS Society UK’s #TeamStopMS Campaign

Following her previous work with charity MS Society UK, Rose is featured (alongside husband Kit Harington) in their new campaign video released today. It sees stars ‘audition’ to join #TeamStopMS and help fund life-changing MS research by supporting the MS Society any way they can – whether that’s donating, fundraising, or simply spreading the word on social media. Recorded in November 2019, Kit takes part in a bucket collection with Breeders actor Alun Armstrong, and Rose undergoes a bike-athon fundraiser compèred by Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills.

All of the celebs (including Rose, Kit, Andy Serkis, chef Ainsley Harriott, radio DJ Scott Mills, actor Alun Armstrong and comedian Ivo Graham) involved in the scenes have a personal connection with the illness. The campaign is part of the MS Society’s Stop MS Appeal, which needs to raise £100 million to find treatments for everyone living with MS.

Sharing what the campaign means to her, Rose said :

“The MS Society is very close to my heart, and the work they do is incredible. I want to support them in raising funds for MS research because we’re so close to finding real and long-lasting solutions to tackle this condition. We have shown through the pandemic that with concentrated effort and funding, we can overcome momentous challenges, and I believe we can do this with MS too.”

“Being involved in the Team Stop MS shoot was a lot of fun, especially watching Andy Serkis do his thing – what a physical genius! Everybody stopped what they were doing and just admired him from afar. But it was also just a really positive thing to be part of generally, with everyone there sharing the common goal of stopping MS. I’m happy to be part of their family.”

Besides the video, pictures of Rose filming the campaign and posing in a “TeamStopMS” t-shirt have also been released :

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic condition that affects more than 100,000 people in the UK. It damages nerves in the body and makes it harder to do everyday things like walk, talk, eat and think. There are more than a dozen licensed treatments for people with the relapsing form of MS, but none stop the accumulation of disability as MS progresses. Morna Simpkins, MS Society Scotland director, said: “Together we need to raise £100 million to stop MS for good. The good news is we’re already over halfway there, but we want you on our team to help us reach our target. There are so many ways to get involved in Team Stop MS and you’ll be in great company, with our incredible supporters like Rose Leslie, Kit Harington and Andy Serkis, who we are incredibly grateful to. So join Team Stop MS today to donate, fundraise, or spread the word on social media, and help us fund life-changing research. No audition needed.

First look at ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ !

HBO has launched a first-look image at the new drama series THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE, which has just begun production in New York !

The six-episode HBO drama series, directed by the Emmy®-winning David Nutter (“Game of Thrones”, “Band of Brothers”), stars Rose Leslie (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as Clare and Theo James (“Divergent”) as Henry.

THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE is an intricate and magical love story, adapted by Steven Moffat from the much loved novel by Audrey Niffenegger, that tells the story of Clare and Henry, and a marriage with a problem…time travel.

Joining the cast is Desmin Borges (“You’re the Worst”), as Clare’s best friend, Gomez, and Natasha Lopez (“Runner Runner”), as Charisse, his girlfriend.

Steven Moffat, Writer and Executive Producer quote: “This is a story of loss but it’s not a tragedy. It’s about a time traveler but it’s not science fiction. Despite Clare and Henry’s time scrambled relationship, this is the tale of a grand, ordinary love – but not necessarily in that order. This is a dream project for me. I have always loved Audrey Niffenegger’s extraordinary, moving novel and it has inspired me many times, so to be adapting it for television is the thrill of a lifetime. Working with David Nutter is a joy and an honour already, and with Rose Leslie and Theo James as Clare and Henry, and Natasha Lopez and Desmin Borges as Charisse and Gomez, this is going to be the love story we need right now.

Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Drama Programming quote: “Steven Moffat is the perfect writer to bring this beloved book and genre-bending story about marriage to life. We also couldn’t be more thrilled that David Nutter will be returning to HBO to direct all episodes of the season.

THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE is an HBO and Warner Bros. Television production based on the book by Audrey Niffenegger, is executive produced by Steven Moffat (“Doctor Who,” “Sherlock”), Sue Vertue, and Brian Minchin through Hartswood Films; Joseph E. Iberti; and David Nutter.

Rose Leslie for 1883 Magazine (RISQUÉ Issue)

Back in September, behind the scenes video of Rose posing for 1883 Magazine were released on social media and I ordered the issue in early November to share the full feature (photoshoot + interview) with you. A lot of content has been released since : a short film, a behind-the-scenes video, and 5 gorgeous pictures of Rose photographed by Eliška SKY Kyselková. I sadly haven’t received the issue yet but since it is already on stands in the UK, lovely people have sent photos of the magazine to me and I’m now able to share Rose’s full interview with you !

Real scans of the issue will be added in the gallery to replace the photos as soon as I can hold it in my hands, but meanwhile, I hope you’ll enjoy : )

Note : at the time of the interview, Death on the Nile was still planned to be released on December 18, 2020. It has since been announced that it will finally be released in theatres on September 17, 2021.

1883 MAGAZINE — Best known for her curve bow carrying, screen-stealing turn as Ygritte, spearwife of the free folk in fantasy phenomenon, Game of Thrones, Scots-born Rose Leslie will next find herself in an altogether different ensemble cast, as Louise Bourget in the big-screen adaptation of Agatha Christie in “Death on the Nile”. Whilst detective novels and the “whodunnit” genre may be amongst Leslie’s favorite literature, flexing her French accent muscle and the chance to work alongside director Kenneth Branagh gave the much-loved classic new appeal. We caught up with Leslie to marvel at how far she’s traveled since her Honeymoon days, why she considers audiences never will tire of Agatha Christie, and how she loves nothing more than playing the outcast. 

You happen to be in director Leigh Janiak’s debut, teen horror film Honeymoon back in 2014 and I’ve actually had the pleasure of speaking with her… Although essentially a slasher film, the character and narrative elements were so strong that the horror just worked around it. In a way, there is that to these Agatha Christie adaptations… What attracted you to the role of Louise Bourget in Death on the Nile ?

Ah yes, Leigh, of course. She’s a superb writer/director. In a way, Honeymoon was a “whodunnit”. It was a joy; we were out in North Carolina filming for that. With Death on the Nile, my character Louise Bourget, is obviously French and when I was about ten years [old], my family decided to uproot from Scotland to France. So, I went to a bilingual school for about three years – and I think it was the allure of playing someone with a French accent. I love accents; it is something I am always drawn to. But obviously, also knowing that Kenneth Branagh was at the helm and hearing of his outstanding dedication on Murder on the Orient Express and knowing he totally gets this Agatha Christie world was so appealing. 

You’re a very good accent person…. Didn’t you play an American in Morgan ? 

Yes, you are right, Morgan ! 

You’ve worked across so many genres, but mainly on strong, long-form TV series, most notably on Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, Luther and The Good Fight. Tell me about the challenges of going back to a film set for Death on the Nile ? In particular, one which revolves around such a strong ensemble cast ?

That was a pull. It’s so enjoyable to be part of an ensemble which has been the case in those past TV projects too. I would say certainly with TV projects and film, the real difference for me is the scale. It is just larger, and we concentrate the whole five months onto this one script, whereas the pace is a lot faster in television. It’s something I enjoyed going back to ; dedicating a day to two scenes rather than dedicating a day to seven. It’s definitely a different set-up.

Rose Leslie for The New York Post’s “Alexa” (October 21, 2020)

A new interview of Rose has been released today with a lovely autumnal photoshoot, this time for “Alexa”, a fashion-centric insert from The New York Post. She talks for the first time about her pregnancy and we learn more about her characters from Death on the Nile (Louise Bourget) and from her upcoming TV show Vigil (Kirsten). There are also some funny bits about lockdown and cutting Kit Harington’s hair (which didn’t go well) !

You can read Rose’s interview on The New York Post’s website here or just below :

THE NEW YORK POST — There’s a change in Rose Leslie lately. Her husband’s noticed it: “He said, ‘Something’s different,’ ” the Scottish actress says. “I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m wearing foundation!’

She’s due back on a BBC set in Glasgow shortly after our interview, and can’t wait to be working again. “After these seven months, the idea of putting on makeup felt very strange,” says the actress, on Zoom from her home in London. “I’m excited to tackle the wardrobe again.

Leslie, best known for her fur-clad “Game of Thrones” character Ygritte, looks right at home in the warm, sumptuous knits of her Alexa shoot. In her personal style, she keeps it simple. “Not many patterns, kind of a tailored cut, flattering for the figure,” she says. “I like to give it an edge, with either a chunky boot or some earrings, but otherwise, it’s relatively minimalist.

Her tailoring may have to be altered in the coming months, as Leslie, 33, recently went public with the news that she and her husband, Kit Harington, are having a baby. “I am thrilled to be expecting, and I can’t wait to meet the new member of our family!” she tells us.

But first, she’s enjoying a return to quasi-normalcy, shooting the six-part crime thriller “Vigil,” which paused production in March and resumed in September. Even though it means COVID-19 testing every three days and a marked lack of hugs, she’s grateful to be back.

Stepping into the hair-and-makeup trailer, and seeing those wonderful ladies in visors and masks and aprons, these dear friends — it felt strange not to go in for a hug,” she says. “I’m a very tactile person with my friends, but the elbow bump is going to have to be enough for now.

MAKE MAGAZINE – Not many people can pull off a Stella McCartney floor-length silk frock and a fashion shoot when expecting a baby but Rose Leslie shows no sign of fatigue. Laughing with the crew during makeup prep, swapping lockdown stories and nodding with her gorgeous grin when everyone agrees that her Good Fight co-star Christine Baranski is utterly brilliant.

Downing cups of tea, Rose is radiantly happy and excited, clearly loving the experience. It’s Rose’s first shoot in the UK for four years. She’s been away living in New York while filming the hit spin-off from the equally brilliant The Good Wife for most of the time. That, and Rose has been decidedly low-key since her marriage to Kit Harington in 2018.
