It is also on these lands that Rose grew up with her four brothers and sisters, her father being chief of the Leslie clan of Aberdeenshire and her mother, descendant of Charles II of England.

Between 2005 and 2008, Rose Leslie studied at the London Academy of Music Dramatic Art where she graduated. A year later, she made her first television appearances in the TV movie New Town, in which she played Rhian. For this role, Rose was awarded the Scottish BAFTA for Female Revelation. The general public discovered her talent thanks to her interpretation of the role of the maid Gwen Dawson in the series Downton Abbey in 2010. A year later, she appears in Jackson Brodie, private detective alongside Jason Isaacs, then in Vera in 2012, a detective thriller.

That same year, Rose Leslie landed the role of Ygritte in the hit series Game of Thrones. She plays this character until 2014. In this momentum, the young woman makes her cinematic debut, first in Now is good in 2012, where she plays Fiona and then in the horror film Honeymoon in 2014 where she plays Bea. In October 2015, Rose Leslie also stars in The Last Witch Hunter alongside actor Vin Diesel.

On the private side, Rose Leslie met Kit Harington on the set of the Game of Thrones series. Fiction quickly joins reality and the two actors meet between 2012 and 2013. After a brief separation, they meet again in 2014. At the beginning of April 2016, they made their story official on the red carpet at the Olive Tree Awards ceremony in London. In September 2017, the couple got engaged. On June 23, 2018, the couple get married in Scotland. In September 2020, during an interview Rose Leslie reveals her pregnancy.
