Brienne of Tarth set out on a journey this season, to keep an oath to Catelyn Stark, and ensure the safety of her two young daughters. In the finale she almost had a chance to do so, when she stumbled upon Arya Stark just miles from the Bloody Gate. But a series of misunderstandings would make the task more difficult, as Brienne was forced to take up arms against The Hound.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gwendoline Christie details filming the brutal battle at length – and it got intense.
“We filmed it—three days in Iceland and it’s the biggest hardest fight I’ve ever done. It was on the rocks with swords and fists and we both came out unscathed, but it was one of the f–king hardest things I’ve ever done in my life. My hands were like tramps feet — like swollen. They looked after me, they always do, but inevitably things happen. We were fighting up hills, down hills, rolling, fighting on rock face with a sheer down drop.
