Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie joins the second series of Channel 4's taut conspiracy thriller Utopia which has just started principle photography.
26 year old LAMDA graduate Rose (represented by Hamilton Hodell) plays tough-talking Ygritte in the HBO series opposite Kit Harington's Jon Snow. She joins the ensemble cast of Utopia, along with fellow newcomers to the series Tom Burke and Mr Selfridge's Trystan Gravelle, with Alexandra Roache, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Fiona O'Shaughnessy all returning.
The new six-part series is written by series-creator Dennis Kelly, directed by Marc Munden and produced by Kudos Film and TV for Channel 4.
Utopia Series 2 is expected to air sometime in 2014.
