Game of Thrones would easily beat Downton Abbey in a fight

“We’ve been training on Game of Thrones for this kind of big showdown for nearly four years. And secondly, there’s only so much damage you can do with a tea tray”

Gwendoline Christie: Game of Thrones would easily beat Downton Abbey in a fight
Written By

In Game of Thrones, you spend a lot of time in full armour. Would you recommend it?

Hmm, not really. But it does help the character. The whole thing about armour is that you can’t move with any degree of grace or ease in it. It’s very difficult to fight in it – even walking is hard. But if Brienne was a real person, that’s what she’d be having to overcome. It says in the books that at night she sleeps pretty much in armour as well because she’s so fearful of being raped. It’s round the clock.

Last season, you had a fight scene with a real bear. What advice would you give to other actors on working with bears?

Make sure there’s country and western music playing. And don’t cuddle it. Our bear was called Bart and he was a real diva. When he stepped out of his trailer, you had to give him a round of applause. None of the rest of the cast is so demanding.

How are you with a sword?

I’m all right, actually. I was taught fencing at school, but I hadn’t done it extensively. The swords are as real as possible. We have a brilliant fight director called CC Smiff who is not only really diligent about every single aspect, but lots and lots of fun. When he first got me I was a bit of a wuss. He had to get me to butch up a lot. He got me to walk about with a kettlebell to get a sense of weight of the sword.

What’s your desert island box set?

I’m very interested in the new HBO series called Looking. I’m told it’s like a gay Girls, set in San Francisco, and I think it shows HBO tackling things that are very current and necessary. And I wholeheartedly support that. It’s the sort of brave new material that shouldn’t necessarily have to be labelled “brave”.

Do you keep an eye on the TV competition?

I tend to watch films, but I’ve been enjoying House of Cards, and I really want to watch True Detective. I love
a bit of the dark stuff – I enjoy 
American Horror Story.

What are your guilty pleasures?

Strictly, The X Factor, I watch all of those. I even loved Splash! No shame with me. 

If you got the opportunity to take part in one reality contest, which would it be?

The X Factor. I haven’t got a particularly good voice but I like to think I could style it out.

If the cast of Game of Thrones had to take on the cast of Downton Abbey, who would win?

I think that’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? For a start, we’ve been training on Game of Thrones for this kind of big showdown for nearly four years. And secondly, there’s only so much damage you can do with a tea tray. 

Game of Thrones continues on Mondays at 9:00pm on Sky Atlantic

Gwendoline Christie and Pedro Pascal Talk Season Four, No Spoilers

By Juan Barquin

Pedro Pascal and Gwendoline Christie.

To say people are excited about the return of Game of Thrones is an understatement. More viewers are tuning in to watch the HBO series than ever before. The promise of another colorful wedding is only part of the appeal; the furthering of unexpected relationships and the welcome presence of characters both old and new give the season an interesting kickoff. I’m a fan of both the A Song of Ice and Fire books and the television series, so the chance to interview the actors behind two of the series’ most interesting characters was sent from whatever heaven in which a good portion of the Stark clan now rests.

Those characters are Brienne of Tarth and Oberyn Martell, better known as the Red Viper. Stepping out of their roles and elaborate costumes, Gwendoline Christie and Pedro Pascal prove to be infinitely more delightful than their characters. That fact made it a whole lot easier to spend some time nerding out with them.

“All I did was nerd out until I realized I had to concentrate and play a part,” admits Pascal, who joined the show this season. Long before he joined the cast, right after Tom DiCillo’s Living in Oblivion was released in 1995, Pascal approached Peter Dinklage on the street.

“I can tell you exactly what street it was — it’s so creepy,” he laughs. “I told him how much I loved his performance in that, and years later, now I get to act with him.” Pascal still hasn’t revealed that story to his costar.

Also an immense fan of the show, Christie was especially in love with the books.

“It surpassed all my expectations, and I thought they were some of the most unconventional narratives I’d ever come across,” she says. She was most interested in the women of the novels, especially that of her character, Brienne. Asked how often a role like that comes along, she says, “I wish I could say regularly. It’s rare, but it’s encouraging to me that a part like this, that so many of the female characters on the show, have proved to be so popular.”

They’re not only popular but also defiant to gender stereotypes. But where many viewers see Brienne as a mere knight, Christie sees far more.
