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.
Poor Gwen. I can’t believe she had to deal with this. Brienne doesn’t like Tormund. Move on.
