I have two older siblings and they had the time of their lives at university. They were at Newcastle and Edinburgh. Looking up to them the whole time, I wanted to go to university and live the life they were living, having a blast, and I didn’t get in. I didn’t get into any of the universities I wanted to go to. So wanting to study drama, I realized we had to think of another avenue, and that’s when I chose drama school.Rose Leslie


I actually managed to split an arrow [while filming Game of Thrones] and- Kit laughs hearing this story because I’m still not over it. Yeah, there was an arrow already out there and I did this before we started shooting and it was like the first time I’d really handled a bow and arrow. And it was already there somewhere near the bulls eye, and I just did it again and it just split right down the middle. Isn’t that cool, yeah? Isn’t that cool? It will never happen to me again.
