Ygritte is a wildling woman and “girlfriend” of Jon Snow.
The Night’s Watch catch Ygritte north of the wall. It is Jon’s job to execute her because they do not have the resources to keep her as a prisoner. Jon can not do it, and ends up letting her escape.
Later, Jon Snow pretends to be a turncoat, joining Mance and the wildling army. It is Ygritte who vouches for Jon Snow and aides in his acceptance into the wildlings.
Ygritte is nineteen, short and skinny, with fiery red hair. The wildlings believe that red hair is lucky and describe her as being “kissed by fire”. She is tough, independent, and wild.
Although Jon is reluctant at first, They begin a sexual relationship as they march to the wall. Jon has difficulty balancing his real feelings for Ygritte with his loyalty to the Night’s Watch. He starts to fall in love with her as they reach the wall. Soon after, Jon has to make a choice that will only leave room for either Ygritte or the Night’s Watch.
Ygritte is played by Rose Leslie in the TV series “Game of Thrones”. She is 25 years old. She was born in the UK. Rose is a young actress with previous roles in Downton Abbey among other TV series.
We are just now getting to know Ygritte in Season 3 of Game of Thrones. I know I, along with many others, are very happy with the casting of Ygritte and I am probably not alone in saying I have already developed a crush on her.
