The first season of Game of Thrones was way more popular than anyone expected—thus, any new actors would be wise to hitch his wagon to a role in the upcoming second season, if the opportunity was kind enough to present itself. For British actress Gwendoline Christie, the coveted role of Brienne might be what jump-starts a long career. Reportedly, she killed it at the audition, so here's wishing good luck to the aspiring performer.
Brienne will be no easy character to play: she’ll prove to be an adept swordswoman with knightly ambitions and a pledge of service to Renly Baratheon, brother of the late King Robert. The character is a fan favorite among those who read the Game of Thrones books, but that doesn't always translate to the small screen.
