We’ve gotten to see a new side of Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) on Game of Thrones Season 4 now that she has a new travel companion in Podrick Payne, who’s far more loyal and less sarcastic than her last partner in crime. And apparently the best is yet to come, as Brienne has what is purported to be a “phenomenal” scene with Pod coming up.
Speaking to Vulture, Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne) discusses the intense scene on the way for the pair. “I don't think it was so funny!” Daniel says of an upcoming scene where Brienne bites off a man’s ear after hearing that Gwendoline Christie finds the scene humorous. “It was an incredibly demanding shoot for [Gwendoline], and she did an incredible job with it, and it's going to be a phenomenal scene. It was incredible to witness — it was so violent.”
An ultra violent scene where Brinne bites of someone’s ear? Sounds pretty phenomenal to us.
Daniel goes on to say how scenes like this one are one of the perks of the job. “The joy of it is that we can walk away at the end of the day and talk about this cool stuff we're getting to do, like biting off somebody's ear or stabbing a spear through somebody's head. It's a nice thing to have on your C.V. in Westeros.” Who knew they had C.V.s in Westeros?You can check out the rest of Daniel’s interview here.
