  • Game of Thrones Has Put Women At The Forefront Gwendoline Christie

As part a special GOT segment for PEOPLE/Entertainment Weekly, Christie explained why she thought the show was important when it came to a larger exploration of female roles on TV.

When Gwendoline Christie first saw the scripts for Game of Thrones, she knew it was a game-changer because of the way it treated its female characters.

"This was a television show that would put women at the forefront".

But TVLine must have access to some of Melisandre's black magic, because we were able to convince the stars of Thrones to drop some big hints about their characters' fates this season. They wouldn't simply exist as the mother role, the girlfriend role, the wife role, or the sister. "I think putting women to the fore is what has changed the platform for television now", Christie said.

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?"

Citing examples of characters such as Sansa and Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, and Brienne, the actress said the women in the series are independent, complex and powerful.
