Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie has said that her character Ygritte is out for vengeance in season four and is 'incredibly dangerous'.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly Leslie explained that Ygritte's heart has been broken by Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington, and she wants to make him pay, "She's a very different animal [this season]. She's not so playful. She shuts up more and is monosyllabic.

"She's been hurt. We see a very different side of her. It harkens back to wronged women are dangerous, and she's incredibly dangerous this season. She's on a mission. She wants vengeance. She wants to make sure Jon Snow feels as much pain as she feels."

She added, "She's still completely in love with him. She feels like a fool and wants to make him pay."

Game of Thrones returns to Sky Atlantic on Monday April 7, simulcasting with the US broadcast at 2am, and showing again at 9pm.
