That’s why I love you Australians.
That’s my head canon for what GRRM is doing right now, btw. Apparently I have one of those now.
Jaime failing at dinner
Ahahaha - yezzzzz.
It’s about all that’s keeping me sane at the moment. Help a lady out, Tumblr?
Gwendoline Christie is a striking blonde, in more ways than one. “I’ve been taught how to break a man’s nose with my elbow,” says the 6-foot-3 actor who plays Brienne, the only female knight in mediaeval fantasy drama Game of Thrones.
Brienne was introduced to the fictional land of Westeros late last season. The character is mocked for her androgyny, thinks nothing of slaughtering three soldiers at a time and refuses to marry a man who can’t beat her at sword-fighting.
“What I think is so brilliant about this show is that it takes an outsider and an archetype which isn’t often seen – the extremely tall woman who has strength that can match that of her male counterparts – and explores that,” says Christie, whose generous smile and clipped British accent belies the brutish knight she has made famous to millions.

Whelp, there’s a reason for me to watch Game of Thrones…
Brienne: one of my very, very favourite characters. And her relationship with Jaime is so rad.
Know what I’m calling Season 3 of Game of Thrones: The Brienne and Jaime Very Bloody Buddy Movie.
It’s going to be AWESOME.
‘Ser Jaime?’ Even in soiled pink satin and torn lace, Brienne looked more like a man in a gown than a proper woman. ‘I am grateful, but…you were well away. Why come back?’
A dozen quips came to mind, each crueler than the one before, but Jaime only shrugged.
‘I dreamed of you,’ he said.
I SHIP THEM FOREVER.
I’m not gonna lie, I just want Jaime and Brienne to run away and live happily ever after. Angela Lansbury can sing Tale as Old as Time, it will be wonderful.
God, I love you, Jaime!
