How The Good Fight Offers a Break From Reality…With a Donald Trump Twist

A new article about ‘The Good Fight’ Season 2 featuring a short interview of Rose has been released today on E! News :

For Rose Leslie, another actor from across the pond, The Good Fight’s political stories keep her informed. The former Game of Thrones star, who currently plays attorney Maia Rindell on the CBS All Access series, praised co-creators Robert and Michelle King for the way they bring in politics because “as a result it asks audiences to question their particularly values or beliefs, it doesn’t ram them down their throats.

But it makes one query that particular stance in life and I think that can only ever be a good thing and it can only ever bode well for conversations to happen and for one to have an open mind and to accept these opinions and question your own beliefs,” Leslie said during a recent phone interview. “I think that is incredibly important for the world we live in currently.”

Rose in ‘TV & Satellite Week’

The Good Fight Season 2 will premiere in the The UK next Thursday on More4, and a short article is dedicated to the show and Rose in the latest issue of ‘TV & Satellite Week’. You can read it below and find the scans in the gallery.

Most actresses would feel slightly miffed if their character was killed off from the biggest show on television. But you won’t find Rose Leslie complaining. The 31-year-old, who left Game of Thrones in 2014 when her wildling warrior Ygritte took an arrow through the heart, has never been short of work, and the Scottish actress returns to our screens this week in the second season of The Good Fight.

The spin-off from The Good Wife focuses on young lawyer Maia Rindell, played by Leslie, who we first met starting work at a large Chicago firm, Lockhard & Lee, alongside her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhard (Christine Baranski). However, it emerged that Maia’s father Henry (Paul Guilfoyle) was behind a Ponzi scheme that robbed hundreds of thousands of people – including Diane – of their life savings. The scandal forced Maia and Diane out of Lockhart & Lee to join a rival law firm. However, with the furore refusing to go away, the series one finale saw Maia arrested for helping cover up the scheme. As the new season opens, we find Maia due to face trial, and wearing an electronic tag, having already spent some time behind bars. However, Leslie believes that the ordeal has had a positive effect on her character. ’There is a strenghtening to her, and we see that reflected in her body langage. She isn’t taking any nonsense this time around.

Other storylines see Diane beginning to rebuild her marriage to Kurt (Gary Cole) after they nearly divorced in season one. Meanwhile, the Chicago lawyers become worried when a client at another firm kills his lawyer for overcharging, sparking a copycat murder that sets everyone on edge. Since getting her big break as housemaid Gwen in Downton Abbey, Leslie has since appeared in BBC1’s Luther and C4’s cult hit Utopia. But she admits most people still associate her with Game of Thrones, especially as she is now engaged to Kit Harington, who played her on-screen lover Jon Snow.

It was a great experience, but I think it’s important to change and not be associated with your character too much,’ she smiles. ’But I adored my time on that show. I loved wearing Ygritte’s armour and having a bow and arrow, and just being dirty and grubby. But I’ve been given some beautiful pieces to wear in The Good Fight. Maia has the most incredible wardrobe. I had the most beautiful Alexander McQueen two-piece and a Helmut Lang overcoat. So I’ve had a lot of fun in being able to wear clothes I would never have the change to in real life.’

‘The Good Fight’ Is TV’s Audacious, Intersectional Answer to Life Under Trump

‘The Good Fight’ Is TV’s Audacious, Intersectional Answer to Life Under Trump

More news today ! A great new article about ‘The Good Fight’ has been published by The Advocate today and it includes a short interview of Rose :

THE ADVOCATE – Leslie’s character, Maia Rindell, who is Diane’s goddaughter, is a lesbian. Trump’s disdain for LGBT people was made clear in his pick of dangerously homophobic Mike Pence as his right-hand man as well as his support of allowing businesses to discriminate against LGBT people. But when Leslie took the role of an inexperienced attorney, marriage equality had been approved by the Supreme Court, President Obama was in office, and Maia’s sexuality was just an aspect of her character.

Leslie isn’t aware of any upcoming plotlines that put Maia’s sexuality front and center, but she’s inspired by the show’s willingness to go headlong into difficult subjects even when she personally feels overwhelmed by the news cycle.

With regards to her relationship and her love life, we haven’t seen a lot of kind of turmoil, so I think that is an incredibly interesting aspect in the storyline to explore,” Leslie says. “There was a moment where I just thought I wanted to bury my head in the sand because there was a sense of being overwhelmed [by the news]. However, I fundamentally believe in being informed.” (source)
