Gwendoline Christie, aka Brienne of Tarth

One of the more popular search terms on The All Action No Plot Movie Blog is for the actor who plays fan-favourite Brienne of Tarth in HBO's Game of Thrones.

I'm talking of course, about Gwendoline Christie.

I must confess it's almost criminal that I've overlooked writing a post about the English actor before now. In fact, the post made last year announcing that she had been cast for season 2 is still one of my blog's more popular posts, even after all this time.

There aren't many bio details out there, besides that Gwendoline was born in the South Downs, England and that she was a semi-professional gymnast as a youth. She has a couple of theatre roles under her belt, but not much in the way of TV or movie work, besides small roles.

However, she is probably most well-known for being the subject of Australian portrait photographer Polly Borland's Bunny Nose project. This rather odd and creepy set of shots portrays the actress in a series of poses often wearing nothing more than tights and bizarre bunny costumes.

Gwendoline was recently intervewed at the London Film and Comic Con, see the interview here.

Game of Thrones Season 3 is due for premiere on HBO on March 31st 2013.
