The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

I love her so much.

Look at her!  She’s gorgeous!  I don’t even watch GoT but I am a fan of hers for life.

Opinion Request Time!

So, I’m joining the 21st century and deciding to use my iPad as an alarm clock.  But I am an old person who remembers when you could burn out a battery leaving a device plugged in all night long.  And most of these alarm clock apps require constant power.  

So is my iPad safe staying plugged in all night?

Truthful Tuesday

I’m letting go of the hope that this relationship will ever be what it might have been.  I’m letting go of the will to fight for something that will never be.  I’m walking away and not looking back.  Because it takes me a long time to give up on something, but when I’m done, I’m done.

"Before you speak, ask yourself: is it true, is it kind, is it necessary, does it improve upon silence?"
If only I could ingest/absorb wisdom like a multi-vitamin.  Can we make that happen?

Holly and I decided on Let Go for this week’s theme.  
For many reasons it is perfect, especially now.
Holly created the cute little sign above - manifesting intention is what it’s all about.
