I love playing Brienne of Tarth because, when I was growing up, I didn’t really see people on television that I felt that I could identify with. Women all looked kind of a particular way, women characters that were popular, anyway. And when I had the opportunity to play this part, it made me explore the parts of myself I had hidden from. I had very long hair. I wanted to look very feminine, really tall. (x)

King Alistair. Whats not to like about this goon. Unfortunately my warden was an Amell, so she only gets to Frickle Frack him covertly, ya know, because he’s king and she’s a lowly circle mage/arcane warrior/blood mage/spirit healer who killed an arch demon and ended the blight, then went on to become Warden commander and save the city of Amaranthine. That old tale.
When I took the part (of Belle de Jour) I had just finished Doctor Who and I wanted to do something really different, not to upset people or prove a point, but because it’s fun and interesting and you learn something from every different character that you play. But some people were very critical of me for that.
