Gwendoline Christie

Gwendoline Christie as Brienne Tarth from Game of Thrones

I am mid way through the 4th volume of Game of Thrones.  The story has its positive and negative moments, to be sure. However, Martin has provided readers several complex characters to accompany them on a journey through this blighted kingdom. 

Many of these characters stop in my head for a spot of tea on long drives across my prairie home state, but Christie's depiction of the loyal, angst ridden Brienne Tarth most often is the one who pours.

Just thought I'd like to share this still photograph with you. Her intensity is palpable. And I do love intense characters.
