Here's Something We Like to Call 'Gwendoline Christie Towering Over Mere Mortals'
Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones, is undoubtedly very tall. She’s 6’3, which is tall in the real world, but in Hollywood, where the average height of an A-list celebrity is, I think, 4’11, she is towering. It’s not as apparent on Game of Thrones because Nikolaj Coster-Waldau — with whom she has shared most of her scenes so far — is 6’2, but up against the Lilliputians in the rest of the entertainment business, the contrast is stark.
See for yourself.
