Gwendoline Christie: Brienne 'Tested' In 'Game Of Thrones'

Gwendoline Christie’s Brienne of Tarth wound up in King’s Landing as “Game of Thrones” wrapped up its third season, and in the coming episodes of the HBO series, expect to see her face a myriad of challenges.

“I think what we’re going to see is the continuation of a story of a woman that is placed in situations that she doesn’t know, naturally, how to navigate,” Gwendoline told Access Hollywood at the show’s recent NYC premiere.

“And there are occasions where we can truly enjoy watching how she’s tested,” Gwendoline added. “And she also undergoes the greatest hardship yet.”

The actress also predicted that fans will be surprised by some of the show’s Season 4 twists and turns involving the characters of the Seven Kingdoms.

“Being someone that’s been lucky enough to read the scripts, I can inform you that it does,” she said, when Access asked if the show can get more shocking. “Everyone’s mind is going to explode.”
