Gwendoline Christie Is a Rising Red Carpet Star

VOGUE – The leading ladies of Game of Thrones are known for bringing a bit of the show’s fantastical spirit to the red carpet, but no one does this better than Gwendoline Christie, the statuesque British actress who plays fan favorite Brienne of Tarth. On television, the star is clad in armor and chain mail, but off-screen, her wardrobe of one-of-a-kind designer pieces and glamorous gowns is fit for a queen rather than an errant knight. Approaching fashion with enthusiasm and a chameleon’s fearlessness, Christie is just as likely to appear at a premiere in a ladylike design by Oscar de la Renta as she is to make the rounds in fresh-from-the-runway Giles. This variety makes Christie compelling to watch—especially when she goes for broke. Christie is one of the few celebrities who consistently avoids playing it safe.

 

The key to pulling off outré ensembles? Working with what you’ve got: At 6-foot-3, Christie’s height automatically makes her stand out, but rather than shying away from outfits that highlight her size, Christie embraces the advantages being tall gives her—long legs look even better in towering heels, flowing capes and skirts with trains are never better than on a frame that can accentuate their drama. Even sweet touches, like oversize lip prints and dresses covered in quirky painted pink flamingos, seem just right when she wears them, and she has modeled for boundary-pushing labels like Vivienne Westwood and Iris van Herpen in the past.

 

Though filming for the latest edition of the Star Wars franchise prevented Christie from attending Game of Thrones’s season six premiere in Los Angeles, you should still expect to see her making fashionable waves this year. Having already picked up a British Fashion Award for her notable personal style, Christie is set to take things even further going forward: Her roles in the Absolutely Fabulous movie and the next installment of Star Wars should make her a regular on red carpets across the world—but keep your eyes peeled for her off-duty looks, too. Even dressed down, Christie manages to keep things bright and bold. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Faye Dunaway is #TeamBrienne

Quote from a Vanity Fair article about the premiere:
 

Oscar-winning actress Faye Dunaway, an ardent Game of Thrones fan, told us that she has little problem getting on without Snow, because her loyalty lies with the show’s strong females.

 

“My cup of tea currently is Gwendoline Christie’s Brienne,” she told us. “Isn’t she great? A strong warrior, and she is going to have a bigger part in Season 6. And I love Emilia’s Daenerys Targaryen too.”

 

Although Dunaway hasn’t read the George R. R. Martin tomes on which the TV epic is based, she takes the show so seriously that oftentimes when watching, she told us, “I take notes on the direction and the performances and just try to learn from the work. I look up the characters online too to find out more than I already know.”

 

(Lest Dunaway be concerned about the fate of Daenerys, Clarke assured reporters that her character “is kind of a badass so you never really need to worry.”)

The New Women of STAR WARS

STRIP LV – It’s been the dawn of a new age of women in the Star Wars film franchise, thanks to Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, who championed the addition of more female characters in the newest installment, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And not just random, female roles—but strong roles of substance.

 

We sat with two of the strong lead females from the record-breaking blockbuster, The Force Awakens—the heroine: “Rey” (Daisy Ridley) and the villain: “Captain Phasma” (Gwendoline Christie).

 

Daisy Ridley – born the youngest of five daughters to Louise Fawkner-Corbett and Chris Ridley of London, England, hit Hollywood with a bang in her powerful lead role as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But this talented actress is no stranger to the fine arts, whose great-uncle was Arnold Ridley: actor, playwright, appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), and who was best known for authoring the play, The Ghost Train, as well as his role in the popular seventies WWII British television sitcom, “Dad’s Army”. Initially sent by her parents to Tring Park School for the Performing Arts in response to the preteen’s somewhat naughty behavior in primary school, the young budding performer would become a triple-threat as an actress, dancer and mezzo-soprano with a strength in jazz and cabaret-style singing. And the new Star Wars’ sensation must have some pipes—hitting social media last month, saying that she had recorded a duet with none other than the legendary singer, Barbra Streisand, posting a photo on Instagram of the two of them together, teasing “…more details to come.” Director J.J. Abrams has stated his love for Ridley’s singing voice—so who knows what he has up his sleeve?

 

What we do know is that Ridley turns 24 with her birthday this month, (April 10) and that we will enjoy much more from the talented actress, as she is slated to reprise her role in the next of the franchise’s sequels. She took out a moment from the media storm to share her excitement in taking on the heroic character and to tell some stories about how incredible it was to work with legendary actors, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.

 

Gwendoline Christie – another British talent – is best known for playing roles of women who kick ass. Graduating from Drama Centre London with a First Class BA (Hons) in 2005, she started out in theater, and then became the subject of photographer Polly Borland’s noted series of photographs. It was 2011 when Christie landed the role of the fierce medieval fighter, Brienne of Tarth, in the highly successful HBO series, Game of Thrones. “I’ve been lucky enough to play a couple of parts of women who are very driven and somewhat unconventional,” she adds. “I love playing women who kick ass!” Towering over other long-legged actresses, Uma Thurman (6” 0”) and Jane Lynch (6’ 0”), even Brigitte Nielsen (6’ 1”) Christie’s height of 6’ 3” made for an ever-more fearsome villain in her role as Captain Phasma in the sci-fi epic. The formidable yet striking actress shares how taking on the ‘typically male’ role as villain for the franchise was much more than just stepping up and wielding a laser—that the original Star Wars movie had a huge influence on her as a young girl and that landing the role actually was a dream come true.
