The “Activist” Reason For Gwendoline Christie’s Dramatic SAG Look

The Game of Thrones star’s entire outfit was a statement.

 

 

VANITY FAIR – When the stars descended on the SAG red carpet Sunday night, they did so in the shadow of massive nation-wide protests in reaction to the executive order banning people from certain countries from entering the U.S. It can be a surreal experience watching the actors talk about their projects inside a bubble that ignores incendiary headlines. Some performers, like Riz Ahmed and John Legend—who have both certainly been vocally political elsewhere—chose to keep the S.A.G. red carpet politics-free. “I’m not saving the world tonight,” Viola Davis told E! host Giuliana Rancic. But by striding down the red carpet in a shimmering, black, Vivienne Westwood jumpsuit, Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie was making a statement of her own citing Westwood’s “activist mindset” as the reason for their enduring partnership.

 

This isn’t the first time Christie has used that exact phrase. When she became the face of Westwood’s “Unisex” campaign in 2015, Christie said: “It is so relevant for Vivienne Westwood to re-assert their activist mind-set and create a collection that takes us beyond our current gender stereotypes with beauty and intelligence.” And while other women on the red carpet also wore accessories and even pants to make a statement, Christie’s fashion statement was the most eye-popping.

 

It’s the actress’s second major political statement this month: she tweeted in solidarity with the Women’s March. . .

 

 

And though she’s yet to use her social media to comment directly on the recent executive order, she retweeted a Desmond Tutu quote from Forest Whitaker urging unity over division. And Christie is every bit aware what kind of example her Game of Thrones character, Brienne of Tarth, sets in terms of breaking down the limits of gendered expectations. Usually she gets to do that good work in shining armor, but Sunday night she did it in shimmering sequins.

‘Game Of Thrones’: Season 8 Episode Count Still TBD

DEADLINE – Production is winding down on the upcoming seventh season of Game Of Thrones, which will debut in the summer. It will consist of seven episodes, three fewer than Seasons 1-6. That was by design as creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are plotting the blockbuster fantasy series’ final chapters.

 

They have revealed that GOT will end with Seasons 7 and 8. While Season 7’s episode count was set at seven last summer, before it went into production, the length of GOT’s final installment had been in flux. Benioff and Weiss had said that they were considering a 6-episode final season but that was not set in stone. As of now, there still is no a firm episode count.

 

“We are talking about it,’ HBO president of programming Casey Bloys told Deadline at TCA. There is no rush. Seasons 7 and 8 won’t be filmed back-to-back, so there is time to lock that in. While renewal for GOT has never been in doubt, it traditionally has been done around the previous season premiere.

‘Game of Thrones’: The Top 30 Characters, Ranked

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – With 60 episodes under its belt and counting, HBO’s Game of Thrones has produced an enormous amount of characters — some more successful than others, sure, but almost all of them distinct and memorable in their own right.

 

Indeed, the ensemble is so vast that you could anoint virtually any character as your personal favorite, and you wouldn’t be wrong. Is it nothing but Jon Snow (Kit Harington) in your forecast? No argument here. Do you forsake the old gods and the new, bowing before Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) instead? Easy to see why! There’s no right or wrong way to prioritize affinity toward the heroes and villains of the HBO fantasy series — which is a helpful thing to keep in mind while considering how we have prioritized these characters.

 

With that out of the way, here’s how The Hollywood Reporter ranks the top 30 characters featured on Game of Thrones, through six seasons of the series:

 

 

8. Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie)

 

There are countless incredible images found all over the show, but Brienne charging into battle on horseback at the start of season six, rescuing Sansa (Sophie Turner) at just the right time, stands out as one of the most triumphant. Brienne the Beauty is often at the heart of some of the show’s best and most touching scenes, from bonding in the bath with Jaime, to the outright visceral awesomeness of her battle against the Hound, to her swift execution of Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and beyond. Here’s to many more horse-and-sword battles to come.

The 11 Best ‘Game Of Thrones’ Couples

Ranked From Somewhat Adorable To Downright Lovable

 

BUSTLE – Game of Thrones may gravitate toward ruthless stabbings and the occasional beheading, but underneath all that bloodshed lies the heart of some truly epic love stories. Naturally, many of those said love stories tend to take a backseat due to all of the other tens of thousands of storylines going on, but they’re still there nonetheless and help to make the HBO series the hit success that it is. Granted, even the best Game of Thrones couples have faced their fair share of ups and downs, most of which have ended due to death or betrayal. But hey, when you live in an area like Westeros, that’s the risk everyone kinda has to take.

 

So who are these mystery duos, you may ask, who have pierced our hearts with their inspiring and, at times, intoxicating romances? I suppose everyone’s opinion on the matter would vary slightly, depending upon your tastes in TV love interests. But on the whole, there are certain Game of Thrones couples that inarguably reign supreme over all others, regardless of your own personal prejudices. No one on this show is perfect. Far from it, actually. However, certain couples manage to get pretty dark close. So without further adieu, here is my official ranking of the top 11 GoT couples, ranked from least to most.

 

4. Brienne Of Tarth & Tormund Giantsbane

 

 

So they aren’t an actual couple yet. SUE ME! It’s bound to happen and based on the chemistry we’ve seen between them already, it’s going to be amazing.

Working with partner Giles Deacon: ‘I wear armour and I wear couture – both fascinate me’

TELEGRAPH – London is melting. It’s the hottest day of the year, and outside Giles Deacon’s Brick Lane studio, the youth of Shoreditch are wilting in their rompers and crop tops. Inside, we’re above it all in the couture zone – a place of custom-woven double jacquards and hand-painted gold feathers, of gowns so lavish, so transporting and so expensive, they may well come equipped with their own weather systems.

 

Behind a closed door, Deacon is directing Gwendoline Christie (the Game of Thrones and Star Wars star who happens to be his partner) as she swishes through a series of looks from his first couture collection.

At 6ft 3in and with a regal confidence befitting the only actress ever to portray both a Shakespearean queen and a Stormtrooper commander, Christie seems born for gowns, particularly those with Deacon-esque heights of verve and individuality. She wears a silk gown printed with bird eggs of the British Isles with the same confidence and ease that most women would bring to their favourite jeans.

 

‘Giles has long been one of my favourite designers,’ Christie says via email later. ‘He has two of my favourite attributes in artists: wild imagination and technical rigour. [His designs] can be practical, otherworldly, sculptural and mind-bending, but you always feel celebrated as a woman when you wear them… Their confidence somehow increases yours. It’s quite a power for a designer to have. His clothes have personalities.’

Gwendoline Christie pays tribute to France attack during Rogue One panel

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 12.30.21 PM

EW – The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel at Friday’s Star Wars Celebration in London opened with the tribute to those killed on Thursday in Nice, France during an attack on Bastille Day.

 

Before revealing new footage from the first Star Wars standalone film, actress Gwendoline Christie – who appeared in last year’s The Force Awakens – led the crowd in a moment of silence.

 

“I’d like to just take a moment… it’s impossible for us to sit here today at Celebration, particularly at an event called Celebration, without thinking about the terrible events that have happened not far from here. On behalf of everyone, our hearts go out to the people of Nice and France,” she said as the crowd cheered. “I’d like us all to just take a moment to send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers.”

 

Following the moment of silence, someone in the crowd began singing “La Marseillais,” the French national anthem, in a show of solidarity. An emotional Christie clapped along as the crowd sang.

 

On Thursday in Nice, a terrorist attack left at least 84 dead and more than 200 injured, when a truck struck civilians following a celebration of Bastille Day.
