"Game of Thrones" fans witnessed the biggest battle on the hit television series yet with "The Watchers on the Wall" this week.
Actress Rose Leslie portrays Ygritte, the wildling Jon Snow fell in love with, and recently discussed this week's episode of "GOT." Spoiler alert: for those who have not yet watched "The Watchers on the Wall," Leslie's interview reveals the fate of her character in the show.
As Jon Snow (Kit Harington) struggles to keep the Night's Watch tower intact under siege, Ygritte was in pursuit of finding her one-time love. However, "GOT" fans will never know if Ygritte really intended to kill Jon or if she was trying to protect him because the red-haired wildling was killed in "The Watchers on the Wall." Following the episode, Leslie revealed her favorite memories and scenes as Ygritte, and even touched on the "colossal" final heartbreaking scene for the character.
"We shot ['The Watchers on the Wall'] back in November and it was epic," Leslie recalled, according to People.com. "I have never been anywhere so colossal. The set and the amount of people were just juge and everyone was just going their job to such a high standard. It became a well-oiled machine, but it was definitely an epic battle- there were dozens of people doing their individual battles and darting around the courtyard. It was just amazing to watch and be a part of."
Leslie went on to explain that her character "didn't really have any girlfriends," so the actress was surrounded by primarily male co-stars who she joked and had fun with on and off camera. Recalling her favorite scene, Leslie cited season three when the wildlings climbed the wall.
"Of all my scenes over three seasons…. That was the most fun I've had ever on a day of work," she said.
The actress also described her popular co-star Kit Harington and his beloved "GOT" character.
"Kit is a lovely and funny man, and a dear friend," Leslie said. "We had known each other before we started working together on 'GOT.' It was always such a privilege to be working opposite him and such a blessing that we got [along] in real life because it made our characters more believable."
Furthermore, Leslie added her opinion of Jon Snow's future with romance now that Ygritte is dead.
"I think it is a lovely thing for somebody to move on and love someone else, but it is a tricky thing," he said. "If I had to choose someone on the show [for Snow to love] right now, I guess it would be Margaery Tyrell."
A new "Game of Thrones" episode entitled "The Children" will air this Sunday, June 15 at 9 p.m. EST.
