In their attempt to chronicle what went on with each member of the crew of Game of Thrones leading up to Season 4, HBO has now released a video focusing on the costume department, and in it we actually learn a few details about some of the characters storylines in the new season.
You may have noticed Brienne sporting some fancy new armor in the other promos, and now we find out where she got it. Gwendoline Christie, who portrays Brienne, says, “Jaime gives Brienne her equivalent of an amazing dress and a pair of shoes, he gives her a sensational suit of armor and a sword, he’s given her couture.” We wonder why Jaime gives Brienne such a lovely gift? Does she have a birthday coming up in Season 4?
We also get a peek a Jaime’s new hand, which is (fittingly for a Lannister) made of solid gold. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) shows off one of the props he wore, saying, “This is one of the golden hands that Cersei has made for [Jaime] because she’s so disgusted by his stump.” Lena Heady (Cersei) chimes in, “She just wants to cover it up, but obviously that doesn’t work because it’s a big gold hand.” Subtlety never was a strong suit of the Lannister family.
