Rose Leslie, known for playing the wild Ygritte in HBO’s Game of Thrones as well as Gwen Dawson in Downton Abbey, is taking a spooky turn with her new starring role in the twisty horror movie Honeymoon, set for release on Sept. 12.

Leslie is no stranger to on-screen nudity, but one scene from Honeymoon in particular was even too graphic for her standards. “Oh god! The most difficult scene… someone in a previous interview called it was ‘the birth,’ ” Leslie told uInterview of her most graphic scene.

But the film offers much more than just a good gross out. “The film is about seeing those cracks slowly begin to appear in what is seemingly a very strong relationship in the beginning,” Leslie told uInterview. “What I found to be particularly interesting was to see that desolation between the two of them and the misplaced trust and the sort of crosswires that they have and that there’s a proper lack of communication. So that enabled me to portray a slow transformation without just going from one end to the other.”

Q: Where is your character ‘Bea’ at the outset of this movie? - Uinterview

Well, at the outset of the movie, clearly with it being called ‘Honeymoon’ she is actually within that phase of being completely enamored with her husband and having just taken these marriage vows and really just being on cloud nine.

Q: What graphic scenes were most difficult for you? - Uinterview

Oh god! The most difficult scene, I never knew how to really speak about it before, but someone in a previous interview called it 'the birth.'

Q: How does your character transform through the movie? - Uinterview

Well, I thought that, rather wonderfully, it was a nice build in the fact that it wasn’t in one extreme. I mean obviously the film is about seeing those cracks slowly begin to appear in what is seemingly a very strong relationship in the beginning. What I found to be particularly interesting was to see that desolation between the two of them and the misplaced trust and the sort of crosswires that they have and that there’s a proper lack of communication. So that enabled me to portray a slow transformation without just going from one end to the other.
