Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie looks different in rediscovered snaps from her first TV role in Banged Up Abroad




The seeds of today grow into the plants of tomorrow. The fineness of an artist’s performance can always be traced back to their roots. Some of them acted on stage as a hobby, while some were pushed into it (Like Iain Glenn). Then there are those, like Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie, who were serious about acting from the start. And her dedication is quite obvious on her face, as seen in these rediscovered snaps from her first-ever television role.

The actress, 34, first entered the showbiz realm back in 2008 when she was cast, aged 20, in the popular docudrama series Banged Up Abroad in an episode about drug smuggling in Peru. She played the role of a drug smuggler named Kim in the show. Four years later, Rose got her breakthrough role, Ygritte, on the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones where she also met her future husband Kit Harington.


“It was an incredible experience, and for me—as an actor—it definitely opened a lot of doors with casting directors, and producers,” Rose has said of her three-season stint on the global hit show.

The talented actress has also starred in other hit shows such as Downton Abbey, Luther, and Vigil. Rose will next be seen in the big-budget film Death On The Nile, based on the novel by Agatha Christie, and co-starring Gal Gadot and Kenneth Branagh.
