Gwendoline Christie Promises Brienne Will 'Burst' Into Season 6

She's done waiting for candles!

Gwendoline Christie Promises Brienne Will 'Burst' Into Season 6

Remember back in Season 3 when Brienne of Tarth was kicking ass regularly on Game of Thrones? That was great wasn't it? Way more exciting than watching her wait for a candle for three months!

Gwendoline Christie Promises Brienne Will 'Burst' Into Season 6

Well if you've been disappointed in the dearth of Brienne fights for the past couple of years, it sounds like Season 6 is going to be worth the wait. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gwendoline Christie promises the new season will find her with much more to do.

"After season 5, people would come up on the street moaning about why wasn’t Brienne wasn’t doing more," Christie said. "I’d say, 'I'm terribly sorry. I'm not really in charge of that.' I got the scripts for season 6 and I thought the story was so fantastic. It's really exciting to see Brienne burst forth again."

Christie has had much more work come her way since she started playing Brienne, and she's psyched that fans have connected with a character who's "so unique and unconventional and so strong." She also says this season we'll see her cross paths with some other Very Important Characters.

"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."

We can't wait to see where the show takes Brienne when it comes back April 24.
