Rose Leslie: Kit Harington's always been a 'gentleman'


Rose Leslie thinks Kit Harington was a "gentleman" when they filmed an intimate scene together.

The 'Game of Thrones' star met her now-husband on the set of the HBO fantasy series and when their characters had to get intimate on screen before they started dating, Rose was impressed by how caring he was.

She said: "I remember that scene took a day and it was a closed set, so only the amount of people who were essential to the filming were allowed to be present. Kit was, as ever, a gentleman, and he made sure that I was comfortable where he was going to be positioned, and he would always then turn around when they called cut and the lovely wardrobe dailies would come in with a dressing gown, and then I would be covered. And only then would notes be spoken to us from the director.

"But he [Kit] was very considerate and made sure, as much as possible, that I didn't feel awkward standing in front of people with your t**s out. It's never going to be an enjoyable day; it's always going to be an awkward one, but he and the rest of the crew were incredibly considerate, and it's a conversation that we most certainly had in terms of where the boundaries lay."

And the 32-year-old actress thinks it was such a lovely "moment" for their two characters - Ygritte and Jon Snow.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "It was such a moment for the two lovers to finally come together, and the promiscuous side of Ygritte was wanting to teach Jon Snow a few things. There was a lot of fun to be had in terms of her demeanour and the way she held herself. She was a lot of talk, but she ended up walking the walk. I felt very safe, and I remember enjoying that day just because it was a different element for both of those characters. And then we also got to jump into some hot water, so that's always fun. We were pretty open to the elements, and being able to jump into the water, that was rather enjoyable."
