AS SEEN ON TV: ROS


ROS

CREATED BY:
George R.R. Martin
&
David Benioff and D. B. Weiss
(Apparently, Martin only mentioned a red-headed whore in the first book. Benioff and Weiss took that and fleshed her out to become Ros.)

PLAYED BY:
Esme Bianco

AS SEEN IN:
'Game Of Thrones'

LOCATION:
Winterfell & King's Landing, Westeros, on the planet Mondas
(Mondas as the planet is strictly a Toobworld conceit.)

From the "Game Of Thrones Wiki":
Ros is a recurring character in 'Game of Thrones'. She is played by guest star Esme Bianco and d├ębuts in the first episode of the first season. Ros is a prostitute and renowned beauty in a brothel in Winterfell's outlying town. She has drawn the attention of the young nobles of Winterfell including Theon Greyjoy and Jon Snow. Theon is a regular customer while Jon is not.


Arriving in King's Landing, Ros finds employment at a brothel owned by Littlefinger. He tutors her in the art of seduction. Besides Theon Greyjoy, among her other high-profile clients are Tyrion Lannister (while in Winterfell) and Grand Maester Pycelle (in King's Landing.)


Ros does not appear in the books and is the first character created specifically for the show. However, some fans have speculated that her role is based on the 'red-headed whore' who appears very briefly in the first novel. This is strengthened by the fact that Bianco was originally announced as playing 'red-headed whore' and that the character was given a name at George R.R. Martin's suggestion. Martin has stated that he intends to work the character into later books in the series, probably as a throwaway cameo just to tie her presence into both the series and books.

BCnU!
