It’s really hard not to notice such a bright and affectionate woman. In the cult series The Game of Thrones, Gwendoline Christie played the man-like lady Brienne Tart. However, Christie herself proved that in real life she might not look like we used to see her in the image of this heroine.
By the way, the future actress from childhood was engaged in rhythmic gymnastics and even was a member of the national team of her county. But due to the fact that she began to grow up rapidly, the doctors forbade her to exercise. Now, the growth of this great actress is 191 cm.
It would seem that Gwendoline’s destiny was participation in various freak shows and episodic roles in little-known films. What can we say about the fact that princesses or queens the actress was unlikely to be trusted to play. Nevertheless, she had the chance to play Brienne in the series The Game of Thrones. She could not miss this opportunity. For this reason, Gwendoline completely abandoned the sweet and alcohol drinks. And as a result – immediately lost weight.
A few months before the filming started, the towering actress began to go in for sports: she rode a bicycle, studied fencing and wore armor that weighed fifteen kilograms. As a result, Gwendoline managed to gain more than 6 kilos of pure muscle mass.
Gwendolin Christie and the series The Game of Thrones are inextricably linked: the role of Brienne became for the actress native. For the heroine of Tart, Gwendoline sat on a protein diet, took up boxing, kickboxing, yoga, became a regular guest in the gym and trained really hard.
