News Interviews Gwendoline Christie

One of the real pleasures of the press junket this year was getting to talk to a member of the cast I’ve not met previously… and perhaps no cast member has really excited me as much as Gwendoline Christie, the imposing Brienne of Tarth.

The actress seemed practically born for this role, and she made quite an impression in her all-too-brief appearances in the second season. The third season promises to give us a lot more of the Maid of Tarth, as she travels through the dangerous, war-torn riverlands trying to deliver Jaime Lannister to King’s Landing as Catelyn Stark commanded her to do.


What can you tell us about this season of Game of Thrones?

“As ever, what you can expect is that the unexpected always happens. Anything you think isn’t in the realms of possibility can very well occur. Characters are being thrown into situations that are normally completely alien to them, and you have to watch how they scrabble out of it.”

(For those keeping track, we did say we were going to be posting an interview a day… but that obviously hasn’t happened. There’s just too much going on! That said, we hope to get the rest of the interviews transcribed, and we’ll probably post two interviews on one day to get back on track. Perhaps our Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams interviews can be done together…)
