Esme Bianco who played Ros in Game of Thrones!
English born and raised, Esmé Bianco holds a reputation as an internationally acclaimed actress and performer of the highest calibre.
She is currently best known for her role as ‘Ros’ in the Emmy award winning HBO show GAME OF THRONES. When Esmé was cast as Ros her character was only intended to appear in one scene, playing opposite Peter Dinklage, in the pilot episode. Once the series got picked up for a full season, the whole of the pilot episode was reshot, with the exception of this scene – which the producers loved so much they wanted to keep the original.
Based on the strength of Esmé’s performance in that single scene, the producers decided to expand the role of Ros and create a storyline for her, which does not appear in the books on which the series is based. Esmé’s talents garnered a series regular role for three seasons of GAME OF THRONES and secured her a loyal fan base across the globe.
Her film credits include BURLSQUE FAIRYTALES, BIG I AM, CROWLEY, and upcoming releases SCORPION KING 4, LIVING AMOUNG US and MIND PUPPETS.
Esmé has also had a glittering modelling career staring in campaigns for lingerie lines such as Agent Provocateur, Modern Courtesan and Atsuko Kudo. She became internationally famed for her burlesque and cabaret shows which took her around the globe, performing at top clubs and venues and creating shows for the likes of Sting, the Monte Carlo Grand Prix, W hotel, Ministry of Sound and Vanity Fair to name a few.
Esmé recently relocated to Los Angeles, but remains the true English rose…just beware of the thorns!
