In a recent interview with Access Hollywood
, Gwendoline Christie revealed some fascinating things about her Game of Thrones
character, Brienne. She explains her connection with Jaime, her vow to Catelyn Stark and her most recent conversation with Margaery.
Christie shares her insights of the exchange Jaime and Brienne shared…
It’s been such an extraordinary arc, it’s been such an incredible journey that they’ve gone on together, and they’ve both evolved so much as human beings that I think that she wants him to maintain that. I think she’s so impressed in the bathtub scene by how he — her perception of Jaime… undergoes such a 180-degree turn that she does want that to be maintained. Also, in light of Catelyn Stark’s death, they both now are united through the experience they’ve had in [Season] 3, but then, both now united in a sense – the mission now is to carry out the wishes of Catelyn Stark, which is to keep the daughters safe. And I think that Brienne is motivated by a dedication to the greater good. It’s a very pure, altruistic, moral sensibility, and so, I find it quite inspiring because in light of things not being evident in the material physical world, it’s still upholding honor.
Christie was asked if her character told Margaery about Renly’s death in order to excuse herself and the actress said it went deeper than that.
I think that Brienne is a very genuine character and it would weigh very heavily on her mind that there was — she knows few people there and one of the people that she does know there is a woman that, perhaps, would have a poor opinion of her, born of out of something — an event that she’s very confused about. Because we’re dealing with the supernatural, and the two other people that were there are dead, and the one person that was associated with it – Margaery – is there. To an extent it’s unburden, but it’s very important for it to be known how genuine she is in her affiliations and she is a woman of honor
