Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in Game of Thrones has been the romantic subject of Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) since Game of Thrones Season 6. Brienne is creeped out by the looks Tormund gives her. Gwendoline Christie recently told that Kristofer continues to creep out Gwendoline even off screen.

Speaking on the Late Night with Seth Meyers this week, Christie spoke of how Hivju “likes to continue being in character even off set”. “He will start chewing a sandwich wildly at me… really kind of making love to that sandwich as he eyeballs me,” she said.

About some of the looks, Hivju gives her as part of his role, Christie added: “In the script, it simply said, ‘Tormund gives Brienne a look’. I was not expecting the power, the magnitude of sort of intense sexual intention to pour out of a man’s eyes and cover me.

Well, Tormund does want to make babies with Brienne of Tarth, monstrous babies, like he expressed to The Hound on their mission beyond the wall.

We will see how Tormund and Brienne of Tarth love story will play out in Game of Thrones Season 8. The show’s producers are reportedly considering a plan to begin filming Game Of Thrones season 8 in October 2017, with production set to carry through all the way until August 2018. This could delay the episodes’ air date until 2019.

 HBO programming boss Casey Bloys said: “Our production people are trying to figure out a timeline for the shoot and how much time the special effects take. The shooting is complicated enough — on different continents, with all the technical aspects — and the special effects are a whole other production period that we’re trying to figure out. That is a big factor in all of this.”

Anatomy of The Frozen Lake Battle- Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 featured ‘The Frozen Lake Battle’ where a group of twelve people go for a hunt of a dead wight far north beyond the wall.



The crew discusses the making of this amazing sequence.

Says D. B. Weiss, “It was a real back and forth about who would be on this mission, who wouldn’t be on this missionThe Dirty Dozen obviously came to mind. Everybody has a good reason to hate everybody else.” We see Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane, Jorah Mormont, Gendry, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, The Hound and five other wildings go on this suicide mission to rescue a dead wight to show to Cersei that the threat is real.

Some of the sequence was shot in Iceland. The crew worked in cold conditions as hell. Most of the heavy-lifting of the sequence, was in Wolf Hill Quarry in Belfast. The crew had a very hard time trying to work out what a frozen lake looks like, and how they can achieve that. And that went from compacted quarry floor to putting concrete down, to nice, flat finish, and then there had to be hues of color that were added to that. Then they had to work out how the ice would look, trying to make that look three-dimensional, and as if it was transparent ice. They worked hard to make the frozen lake look real.

Says Kit Harrington, “I think there’s a sort of kick-bollocks scrambleness to filming out here where you, you have such limited daylight. And you have conditions which are like this or worse. It just gives it a sense of reality, you know.”

Remarks Emilia Clarke, “You know, the harder the challenge, the more I relish it. But this really, you’re like, “Can I just even maybe have, like, a screen with, like, clouds or something?” I’ve never flown on a dragon! And to just harness that power. I mean, can you even imagine?

In this sequence we got to see a wight polar bear, a dragon dying, hundreds and thousands of wights fighting with the Suicide Squad. I would say that the crew did an amazing job in filming this sequence.
