Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones, expresses interest in the return of Brienne in the Jon Snow spinoff.

Gwendoline Christie has recently expressed interest in her character Brienne’s return. This comes amid the rumour of a Jon Snow sequel Spinoff that has now been confirmed by Emilia Clarke. Clarke said that she talked to Kit Harington about the potential series in a conversation in which it was revealed that Kit would be creating the show.

“It’s been created by Kit as far as I can understand, so he’s in it from the ground up. So what you will be watching, hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington.”

Now, with Gwendoline seeming fond of the idea of Brienne returning, it seems like the perfect time for her to return for the sequel series.

“I really love that character too. I will never stop being grateful for the opportunity to play her. I really won’t. That was really the opportunity of a lifetime. It was incredible. I adored the character, and it came about at a time in my life as my development of what I wanted to do artistically was to express something about the experience that I’d had in life that felt quite niche, but simultaneously was about the very human and relatable experience of being an outsider. I also felt like we hadn’t seen a woman like that on television, or very much in entertainment, before. What I loved about Brienne was that she was able to overcome her circumstances and often triumph. The idea of that marginalized person triumphing was glorious. I love the sound of the Jon Snow spinoff. I really do. I loved watching the show too. It’s very surprising to feel this wave of interest that people are still so invested and that the love is still so real. I think many people feel that they would love to see that story continue. I am hugely invested in playing very different parts now and being pushed and becoming a better actor, developing as an actor, and working with auteurs. There are so many directors I would love to work with, and I want to create different kinds of work. That is my focus. However, I will never stop loving Brienne of Tarth, and I will never stop being interested by her.”
