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.”
