The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

She amazing and she was so lovely at LFCC a couple of years ago

A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy, and suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth, and you’ll know the debt is paid.

Can someone give me some “fashion” advice?

This isn’t so much about fashion as it is about being practical…but here’s what’s up.

I’m going to Italy in a month, and because it’s going to be hot, I’ve been trying to buy really light and flowy dresses and skirts. They’re easy to throw on, they’re cute, and easy to pack.

While that’s all good and well, I’ve been blessed with very muscular thighs…and I intend on doing a lot of walking so chaffing is inevitable. 

This could be a totally stupid question, but what’s the best way to prevent this? Some sort of underwear? Compression shorts? 

Just keep in mind this will be under very light clothing, so I don’t want it to show or be too hot. 

I’m open to any and all suggestions!

Oh bard, the Wave Off Kanagawa dress. Not my style, usually, but I would love to wear that.
