If you ever see or hear, “she was thinking of Renly in that moment with Cersei” or “it doesn’t mean she loves him”
kindly direct them to this:
IGN: I mean, Cersei is right though, isn’t she?
Christie: What’s brilliant about the writing is that in that moment, that’s the first moment [Brienne] considers it, and it’s the horror that that might be true and what she might have to deal with…
… But she doesn’t give a formal exit, she turns away. Then in her eye-line is Jaime. It’s, I think, really slapped her hard on one side of the face, and then the other even harder, as she runs off red-faced. “Oh, God!”
Oh, but you know, the woman who actually acted out those seconds of silence has no idea what was going on in her head and GOD Gwen obviously the director told you to think of Brienne’s feelings for Renly so why are you messing up this interview
