GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE

Age: 36
Place of birth: Worthing, Sussex
Character name: Brienne Of Tarth

Gwendoline Christie

What to watch outside of Westeros: Her Patrick Wolf performances

You’ll be hard-pressed to spot Christie’s appearances in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus, where she plays “Classy Shopper #2”, or The Zero Theorem, where she can be seen in a “street commercial”, so to avoid straining your eyes, stick to her on-stage performances with perennially befeathered pop peacock Patrick Wolf. In a former life, Christie was a semi-professional gymnast, but a spine injury pushed her into acting, and thence to playing the queen in a Barbican Theatre production of Cymbeline in 2007 and Lucifer at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre in 2010. Come December, you’ll see her in The Hunger Hames: Mockingjay – Part 1, where hopefully she’ll be using her gymastery to teach Jennifer Lawrence how to fall over less often.

So Natalia Tena's role in 4 Harry Potter film's with, like, dialogue and stuff, was too short to be considered for inclusion, but Michelle Fairley's part, which involved sitting still for about 10 seconds in one film, qualifies as her best non GoT performance...?!?! More

Easily worse than the Ali G one, is him reading a swinging themed except from the Carankies' autobiography on the Big Fat Quiz Of the year. *Shudder! More
