Brienne of Tarth, one of the most decent and strongest characters on game of thrones is going to have more active role to play in season 6 of the show. She has been sort of waiting around in the past season for getting some signal from Sansa Stark. The actress who plays Brienne of Tarth, Gwendoline Christie, told EW that, “After season 5, people would come up on the street moaning about why wasn’t Brienne wasn’t doing more”.
Brienne is one of character on the show which has survived up till season 6 in spite of having very unlike westeros characteristics. She is not evil and sly or a queen and has survived till now only based on her combat skills. Though, more screen time on the show means more hard time for the character on the show. Its evident that though she has survived till now only based on her battle and swordfighting skills, she will have to develop or exhibit other characteristics in order to remain on the show as her sword fighting will not do the deed anymore.
Gwendoline also told EW about her character and said that, “Brienne is so unique and unconventional and so strong, and I love the writing hasn’t allowed her to just rest there”. Moreover, she praised the show runners saying, “[Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] are so terrific about how they develop characters. We see her develop like the way a human being might through life”. She also has not met so many characters on the show as yet and she says that in the upcoming season she will be meeting or more like facing these characteristics. “So many characters for so long had their isolated storylines and as a fan of this show as well, I’ve been wanting and dreaming — ‘I wonder what it would be like to see this person interact with this other person?’ And that’s what starts to unfold.”
The characters she will be meeting and facing in this season can only be speculated about. Any theories yet?
