‘Game of Thrones’ director was surprised by fan reactions to this brief character interaction

TECH INSIDER: Warning: Spoilers ahead for “Game of Thrones” season six.

 

Sunday’s “Game of Thrones” episode had a strong theme of familial reunion — Jon and Sansa were brought together, while Margaery and Loras spoke for the first time since their imprisonment and Theon returned home to Yara.

 

But there was one onscreen duo people online couldn’t stop talking about: Tormund Giantsbane and Brienne of Tarth. The wildling leader was making eyes at Brienne over his mutton, and this small moment was one of fans’ biggest takeaways of the night.

 

Tech Insider caught up with director Dan Sackheim, the man behind the camera for season six episodes three and four, “Oathbreaker” and “The Book of the Stranger.” Naturally, we asked him what he thought about viewer’s “shipping” Tormund and Brienne.

 

“Honestly, I’m surprised anyone even noticed,” Sackheim told TI. “I mean it was meant to be a little grace note, and the fact that it’s blown up with the buzz it has on the internet and on the blogosphere is kind of shocking to me.”

I’m totally shipping Tormund/Brienne now. Anyone else?!? Ha! Last night’s episode of Game of Thrones was amazing. Melisandre looked afraid of Brienne when she boldly told her that she killed Stannis yet Tormund was completely impressed by her. That’s going to be an interesting party headed to Winterfell assuming Ser Davos and Melisandre joins Brienne, Sansa, and Jon.

 

Thanks to Far Far Away for the Game of Thrones stills!

5 Reasons Brienne of Tarth Is the True Hero on Game of Thrones

brienne-of-tarth

POP SUGAR – When asked about the hero on Game of Thrones, many people might respond “Do you mean Jon Snow?” or “That Jaime Lannister is such a babe.” In truth, however, the real hero of the story is Brienne of Tarth, beautifully played on the HBO series by Gwendoline Christie.

 

If you’re thinking, “What? But she hasn’t even won any huge battles, let alone ridden a dragon!” allow us to convince you. With an honorable nature that rivals Ned Stark’s, a sense of loyalty that reveals her true Hufflepuff temperament, and a badass fighting style, here are five reasons Brienne is the best character on Game of Thrones.

 

1.) She turns sexism and attempted humiliation into victory: In both the books and TV show, Brienne uses others’ shoddy treatment of women to her advantage on the battlefield. Oftentimes, male fighters underestimate Brienne because of her sex, allowing her to swiftly and skillfully gain the upper hand. Other men exert their energy all at once in an attempt to defeat her quickly — their pride encourages them to prove that men are better fighters than women — allowing Brienne to showcase endurance, strength, and discipline by outlasting them in battle.

Gwendoline Christie on Brienne’s rousing return

brienne-of-tarth

EWThis post contains a revelation from the end of the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere.

 

After so much struggle and disappointment, Brienne of Tarth finally accomplished one of her vows to Catelyn Stark. In the season 6 premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones, the warrior rescued Sansa Stark from being recaptured by Ramsay Bolton’s men, and then was accepted into Sansa’s service.

 

“After season 5 people would come up on the street moaning about why Brienne wasn’t doing more, and I’d say, ‘I’m terribly sorry I’m not really in charge of that,’” star Gwendoline Christie tells us. “It was really exciting to see Brienne burst forth again. I loved seeing Brienne fighting again. There was so much action and it’s quite brutal and it’s very exciting to dedicate myself to that moment to overcome that obstacle and rescue Sansa.”
Director Jeremy Podeswa tells us he was particularly proud of the scene – which drew a cheer from the show’s Hollywood premiere audience earlier this month – since it works on so many levels. Brienne saving Sansa is a rousing action sequence, but also shows character development and has an heartfelt tug. “It’s great when you can marry something that has a lot of action with something that’s quite emotional,” Podeswa says. “Theon shows his own agency and protects Sansa, you get to see Brienne throwing down a charging horse with her bare arms, and then there’s [the oath].”

 

For Christie, Brienne’s exchange with Sansa was a major moment in her character’s journey.

 

“When she pledges her oath to Sansa and lays her sword down for her, I found it very touching,” Christie says. “I have so many fond memories of working with Michelle Fairley [Catelyn Stark]. This is a mirror of that oath and this time Sansa accepts it and she can see how dedicated Brienne is to her. It was really gratifying to carry on that oath for Catelyn Stark and finally to find one of the Stark daughters and so she can try to keep her safe.”

How Game of Thrones will leap from sexist to feminist

353-brienne-300x0

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD – The top ten surviving characters in Game of Thrones: 1 Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) supervillain; 2 Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) jester/hero; 3 Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) potential hero; 4 Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) rogue/ hero; 5 Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) damsel in distress; 6 Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) guardian; 7 Daenerys Targeryan (Emilia Clarke) hero; 8 Petyr Baelish Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) mentor/manipulator; 9 Margery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) seductress; 10 Melisandre (Carice Van Houten) witch/ seductress.
Most fans of Game of Thrones expect the series to end with Daenerys Targaryen ruling the seven kingdoms, cunningly advised by the Hand of the Queen, Tyrion Lannister, who’ll be happily married to Sansa Stark. But Sophie Turner, 20, who plays the long-suffering Sansa, has a different hope. “I don’t want to survive,” she told The Wall Street Journal last month. “I want Littlefinger [Machiavellian Lord Peter Baelish] to end up on the throne … If you’re on Game of Thrones and you don’t have a cool death scene, then what’s the point? I think it would be really disappointing if I got to the end and I was just okay.”

 

You are either a normal person or a sexist – Maisie Williams

 

For the first few seasons, Turner’s wish for Sansa to meet her doom was shared by many viewers, who found her whiney and annoying. But in the season starting next week, Sansa joins the regiment of warrior women who have come to dominate the story.

 

The writers are sailing viewers through uncharted waters this year, because they have run out of source material from the novels of George R. R. Martin (currently suffering a painful case of writer’s constipation). In recent interviews, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams (who plays her sister Arya) and Gwendoline Christie (who plays Sansa’s protector Brienne of Tarth) have suggested that this season will display it as a “feminist” series.
