Rose Leslie on What She Will and Won’t Miss About Game of Thrones
One of the more notable cast departures from Game of ThronesSeason 4 was Rose Leslie, who portrayed Jon Snow’s old flame,Ygritte. Jon Snow’s pretty upset that Ygritte met her end at the battle at the Wall in Episode 9, but Rose Leslie herself has mixed feelings about not returning to Westeros in Season 5.
On leaving Ygritte behind, Rose tells Radio Times, “It was very nice to have styled hair, not just greased up and tied back. But I’ll always miss the furs and the bow and arrow.” Ygritte was pretty good with a bow and arrow!
Another thing it sounds like Rose might miss is her famous catchphrase, “You know nothing, Jon Snow,” but it doesn’t sound like fans of the show are going to let her forget it anytime soon! “I was having lunch with a girlfriend in London about a year ago and I was debating what I wanted on the menu,” Rose says. “The waitress came up and I said, ‘I just don’t know.’ She came out with, ‘You know nothing’ – deadpan. Her timing was perfect.”
If you’re wondering whether Rose watched herself die on camera, the answer is yes, and she did so in the best way possible. “I watched it with a girlfriend and we decided to celebrate,” Rose reveals. “So we had ice cream and champagne.” Sounds like a good way to go out to us!
