Rose Leslie On Auditioning For ‘Game Of Thrones’

Sometimes, ignorance can be bliss. Especially when that ignorance helps you land a role on one of the biggest television shows currently on the air. In this clip, Rose Leslie remembers her audition for 'Game of Thrones', and why being completely unaware of the show actually helped her get the part.

'Game of Thrones' Season 3 premieres Sunday, March 31 at 9 pm on HBO Canada.

In this clip, Rose talks about...

Going into her audition unprepared
"Do you know what? With hindsight, this is an amazing thing. I shouldn't really be saying this, but I kind of went into the first audition unprepared. I was unaware of the show, I hadn't watched the first season, and I'd kind of just heard from guy friends who'd been watching it that it was amazing. So it was all kind of word of mouth. And I didn't realize the pressure. And had I realized the pressure, I don't think I would have landed the job in the first place."

Nudity in the show
"I feel, especially with 'Game of Thrones', that [nudity] is necessary. There are times that it calls for that to happen, and whether it is gratuitous or not, it works with the scene, and helps push the scene forward."
