Rose Leslie Says Naked Sex Scene With Kit Harington Was “Terrifying”

Getting naked with Kit Harington sounds like a pretty good time to us, but that wasn’t quite the case for Rose Leslie. The girl kissed by fire also had a case of stage fright when it came to shedding her clothes for Game of Thrones.

Rose, who plays the Wilding who melts Jon Snow’s icy heart, Ygritte, got busy with the bastard son of Ned Stark in a steamy cave beyond the Wall during Season 3. While it was a relatively G-rated scene for an HBO series famous for its use of nudity, Rose admits the whole topless experience left her weak in the knees.

“It was my first-ever scene like that, and it was terrifying,” she tells the Daily Star. Adding to her nerves was the huge audience Rose had to handle.

“A closed set for taking your top off would normally mean there would be about four men [present],” she explains. “But in the grand machine that is Game of Thrones it’s not like that. I was naked in a cave with about 30 men watching! I’m there saying, ‘Oh, so this is a closed set? Oh, OK.’ It was slightly intimidating.”

Rose and Kit were actually dating at the time, adds Mirror, a detail that we’re not sure helps the situation. But maybe we just know nothing.
