Described as “a wilding woman and spearwife,” Ygritte is known for her fiery red hair, which is considered to be a sign of good luck among the wildings.

In “A Song of Fire and Ice,” the George R.R. Martin book series that “Game of Thrones” is based on, she becomes the lover of Jon Snow.

As reported earlier, HBO has added a number of newcomers for Season 2, including Gwendoline Christie, who’ll play Brienne, Maid of Tarth.

The second season of “Game of Thrones” premieres in spring 2012.

News of Leslie’s casting was first reported by EW.com.
