'Game of Thrones' beauty Rose Leslie has confessed she used to hate her distinctive red hair and wanted to dye it black

'Game of Thrones' star Rose Leslie used to hate her ginger hair.

The 27-year-old beauty has admitted that it took her several years before she began to embrace her natural auburn locks.

Rose - who played Ygritte opposite Kit Harington in the HBO drama, 'Game of Thrones' - shared: "When I was younger, I wanted to dye my hair black. I've only recently begun to love and accept the colour. I wouldn't cut it though. I'm constantly plaiting or twisting - it's a comfort thing - and I like to hide behind it!"

It may have taken her a while to accept her hair, but Rose has revealed that she quickly realised that she wanted to be an actor.

She told InStyle magazine: "I am one of five children - I'm the middle child in a rather loud family - so wanting to be heard and to be the centre of attention was a big thing. No one else in my family acts and my parents approached my going to drama school with a bit of trepidation, but they were phenomenal; they have always backed me."
