It's something show star Gwendoline Christie, who plays the doleful but stalwart Brienne of Tarth, would especially know about.

"This was a television show that would put women at the forefront. We were going to explore female characters in a way that conventionally doesn't happen", Christie said at "The Top 10 Game-Changing Game of Thrones Moments", a special on the People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). "They wouldn't simply exist as the mother role, the girlfriend role, the wife role, or the sister", Christie explains.

101-Year-Old Lady Skips Nap, Sets 100-Meter Dash Record
A Baton Rouge woman set a record Saturday (July 15) in the 100-meter dash - and she's 101 years old. Aside from her new love of running, Hawkins has been an avid bicyclist for many years.

But the 38-year-old quite bluntly shut down the idea of the pair as a couple, when she told Newsweek: "Do you think she actually liked him?" But it's not only explicitly "heroine" characters like Brienne and Arya and Daenerys who get love from fans, as Cersei and Yara and Melisandre show.
