The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.
She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”
The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “
For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”
"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."
I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.
The Closet is another room in the virtual House of Alexzander where you can quite literally buy clothing and accessories right from the wardrobe of Elliott Alexzander. The purpose of this came from an idea to literally sell the clothes off their back and use the funds to launch a project that Elliott believes the world needs. One of the worse feelings is going into a department store and finding clothing that you absolutely love, but won’t buy because the store does not offer specific cuts and sizes for EVERYONE! The idea is to create a brand that offers everyone the opportunity to buy fashionable clothing that actually fits. No matter if you are what society calls “plus size” no matter if you have big feet, no matter if you have a flat chest… We want to create a brand that is for everyone! Clothing is such a basic way for individuals to express themselves and it should be available to everyone, yet the gender variant community is STILL left unrepresented. Not to mention, the degrading terms used by chains and department store like “plus size” or “for men/for women” … NO!!!!
Clothes are clothes, and its the dream of Elliott Alexzander to provide everyone with clothing tailored for every body type, every gender identity… for every human being.
Soon, The House will be launching a kickstarter page so that individuals who do not want to buy clothes/accessories from The Closet, can still donate and be apart of the movement Elliott Alexzander is creating within the gender variant & body positive community through fashion.

White feminists need to understand that not all men are sexualized in a way that wholly benefits them. That is something exclusive to white men point blank period.
Because MOC are sexualized in ways that remove their agency and their humanity, and most times this is perpetrated by both white women and white men.
So when you’re talking about the sexualization of men giving men power, you need to be specific about which group of men you’re talking about.
