Ygritte Finally Cast In Game Of Thrones Season 2

Ygritte Finally Cast In <i>Game Of Thrones</i> Season 2

Fans have been wondering who would play Jon Snow's Wildling love interest in season 2 of HBO's fantasy drama series. Now thanks to EW we know..

Ygritte, the red headed Wildling girl who falls in love with Jon Snow, plays a pretty big role in the second book in George R.R Martin's Song Of Ice And Fire series so it's likely that the character will also feature prominently in the show too. She had been the last major character to be cast (I think?) but now EW reveal that Rose Leslie will bring her to life..

Downton Abbey actress Rose Leslie has landed the key role of a Wildling woman that Jon Snow meets during during his adventures beyond the Wall. Ygritte is described as “strong-willed, witty, skilled in battle and survival in the wilderness. An unconventional beauty, skinny but strong with red hair (which the Wildlings consider ‘kissed by fire’).”

Ygritte is a ferocious warrior but has a soft spot for Jon Snow. She is best known for her catchphrase: "You know nothing Jon Snow" which is frequently referenced by GOT fans. Scottish actress Leslie is a relative newcomer with Gwen in Downtown Abbey being her only significant role.

@headlopper: A friend and I decided to check it out on Demand one night out of curiosity and ended up watching the whole season 10 hours straight into the late hours of the morning.

Totally worth it. I'd recommend this series to anyone, definitely give it a go.

Bonnie Wright should fire her agent...

Tough, pretty redhead with an accent and messed up teeth...SHE'S PERFECT, LOL.

Seriously tho, i think she would've been great in the role...

..but as far as i'm concerned they haven't made a mistake yet.....BRING ON SEASON 2!!!!
