Gwendoline Christie was featured on TV Guide’s Fan Favorites panel yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con. Gwendoline was joined by, Misha Collins (Supernatural), Jordan Gavaris (Orphan Black), Sam Heughan (Outlander), John Noble (Sleepy Hollow), Colin O’Donoghue (Once Upon a Time), Retta (Parks and Recreation) and Aisha Tyler (Archer) to talk about working on some of television’s most popular series.
In the panel full of laughs, Gwendoline recalls a particularly odd fan encounter while she was in the dentist chair, and the draw of taking on the iconic character of Brienne of Tarth. She says that although Game of Thrones is based on a book series, changes can be made, and the showrunners like to joke around about the fate of their characters.
She reveals what her favorite televisions series are, saying she loves True Detective, and is late to the party, but is currently addicted to Breaking Bad. Near the end of the panel Gwendoline speaks at length about how much she loves Brienne, and how happy she is that the character is celebrated amongst fans despite being different than the norm.
