6’3″ actress Gwendoline Christie has been cast as Brienne, the Blue Knight in “Game of Thrones” Season 2.

Brienne Tarth is the only daughter and heiress of Lord Selwyn Tarth of Evenfall Hall; she had three siblings, none of which survived childhood. Larger and stronger than most men, Brienne is a skilled warrior and longs to be a knight. She has an awkward personality, but is also honest and stubborn. She holds a naively idealized notion of knighthood despite the insults she receives from many knights, who call her “Brienne the Beauty” to mock her ugliness. She is also known as “Brienne, the Maid of Tarth,” but her most common and neutral nickname is “Brienne of Tarth,” as she is both from the House and island of Tarth.

Season 2 of “Game of Thrones” premiers on HBO in Spring 2012 and begins principal filming this summer.
