‘Game of Thrones’ Star on Tormund’s Crush on Brienne and War in the North

brienne-and-tormund
Here is an interview with Kristofer Hivju and I’m posting the parts about Tormund and Brienne:

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – [Warning: This story contains spoilers through episode six, season six of HBO’s Game of Thrones.]

 

Love rarely lasts in Westeros. Ask Robb Stark (Richard Madden), who lost everything, life and wife included, because he followed his heart. Look no further than his half-brother, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), who cradled forbidden flame Ygritte (Rose Leslie) in his arms as her fire went out.

 

The examples of successful romantic relationships are few and far between — and yet, this cold reality hasn’t stopped Game of Thrones fans from hopping all aboard the good ship Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), one of the rare glimmers of levity in an otherwise extraordinarily bleak series.

 

Tormund’s crush on Brienne isn’t exactly a central plot, nor is it even reciprocated by Brienne herself, but it’s nonetheless a bit of respite in the thick of darkness. Winter is coming, as Tormund knows all too well, having suffered through the hardships at “Hardhome.” What’s more, there’s trouble brewing south, as Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) amasses his forces at Winterfell, preparing to assault Jon Snow and all of his allies, Free Folk included. Not even Tormund has time for matters of the heart — but his fleeting moments with Brienne are a welcome distraction all the same.

George R.R. Martin Just Gave Brienne a New Badass Backstory

No wonder Tormund can’t keep his eyes off of her.

 

VANITY FAIR – This weekend Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin gave what has become an increasingly rare public appearance at Balticon—a Comic-Con of sorts in Baltimore. Martin appeared before the crowd several times and even read out an all-new chapter from The Winds of Winter—something he hasn’t done in years. Some show watchers might be intrigued by the timing of this new Greyjoy-centric chapter—like the release of the Dorne and Sansa chapters before it, the new Euron-heavy section seems to comment on some of adaptive choices a recent HBO episode. But the most interesting bit of news for non-book-readers actually has to do with a spoiler-free reveal about Brienne. The lady from Tarth just got a very flattering new backstory.

 

By most metrics, Brienne’s backstory in both the books and the show is pretty distressing. The lady warrior lost both her mother and all of her siblings and, despite her father’s efforts to marry her off, suffered through three broken engagements. She was mocked, scorned, and rejected in a way the show beautifully captured in the Season 5 scene between Podrick and Brienne when she talked about Renly, one of the only men she ever met who was kind to her. “‘Brienne the Beauty,’ they called me. Great joke. And I realized I was the ugliest girl alive—a great, lumbering beast.”

 

But, in one move, Martin has given Brienne’s non-dainty frame tremendous new meaning. Brienne, he announced to the Baltic crowd, is the descendent of Ser Duncan the Tall and let me explain, show watchers, what that little detail means.

Brienne star secretly loves Tormund’s crush

Plus: The Brienne-Tormund deleted scene you didn’t get to see

EW – All it took was one glance last week to light up Twitter. Tormund Giantsbane crushing on Brienne of Tarth? It’s the match-up we never knew we wanted, until we did. And in Sunday’s “The Door,” the wildling’s desperately unabashed interest in the warrior continued until Brienne was visibly rolling her eyes.

 

One fan of the storyline is Brienne actress Gwendoline Christie, who says she could barely keep a straight face during Tormund actor Kristofer Hivju’s advances.

 

“First of all, Kristofer is absolutely hilarious,” she says. “I don’t think I’ve been in a scene on Game of Thrones when it’s been everything I can do to stop myself from laughing. The way he was behaving toward me was just extraordinary.”

‘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.”
