Another episode of GAME OF THRONES, another gruesome death! Yet another cast member and beloved character was lost at the battle of Castle Black this week. Show runners David Benioff and D.B Weiss discuss how the epic battle came together and more in the latest “Inside the Episode” segment!
Entertainment Weekly also had a chance to chat with David, Dan, Kit Harrington, and Rose Leslie about Ygritte and her final moments. Here’s what Rose had to say about leaving the show for good:
It was really lovely. I know that everybody mentions this but we are very much a close-knit unit on set. They did a wonderful send-offs for their actors. After my final take I was given my bow and arrow. They replaced the handle on the bow, replacing the grubby Wildling wrap with white leather. One one side of the handle is an emblem of a red rose, on the other was a silver placard that read, “Kissed by Fire.” Everybody huddled around. I felt very privileged. It was absolutely beautiful.
