How Tall Is Game of Thrones Star Gwendoline Christie?
Gwendoline Christie is probably best known for her portrayal of the towering Brienne of Tarth on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but is she really as tall as she appears on the show?
Turns out Gwendoline is actually 6’3”, making her the fourth tallest member of the current cast after The Hound (Rory McCann), who is 6’6”, Hodor (Kristian Nairn), who’s 6’10½”, and The Hound’s brother Mountain (Ian Whyte), who’s a whopping 7’1”! With these heights, we think it’s safe to say the GoT cast could put together a pretty formidable basketball team.
Gwendoline had trouble finding roles because of her height before she was cast in GoT, but something tells us that won’t be much of a problem anymore, thanks to Brienne’s general awesomeness!
