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.

Summer Flowers under Moonlight

"Mohe is the northernmost village of China. We’ve traveled there this summer for vocation. That night was so bright, the moonlight painted everything vivid. We could still see the Milky Way with naked eyes, which shocked me a lot. A little shooting star appeared above the path I stood." - Coral Huang

Fandom: Hey, that character seems like they could be autistic.

TV writers: Well-spotted! We made them ambiguously autistic but we’ll never confirm it one way or the other!

Fandom: Um, why?

TV writers: Doy, because then we’d have to do research to portray it accurately and shit!

Fandom:… is that really that much of a hassle?

TV writers: OMG YES! Why would writers do research?

Fandom: Maybe you should hire some autistic writers, then?

Which is why I’m so happy about Abed Nadir from Community. Canonically autistic character written by an autistic (Dan Harmon).

That look to the left…

I still remember being chewed out by my mother at Sesame Street Live because I was clapping after everyone else had stopped. She thought I was doing it on purpose to be disruptive, but it took me a couple of moments to catch on for the proper time to clap and when to stop.

I basically stopped applauding things for years after that, because I was too nervous about getting “caught” doing it wrong.

Seeing a little thing like someone looking to their friend for a cue is a huge thing.

5 Popular Movies and Their Obviously Superior Counterparts

#4: Taken. The Objectively Superior Counterpart: Hanna
There are so many fistfights, gunfights, foot chases, and tense cat-and-mouse sequences dusted with sprinkles of German weirdness that I am amazed [Hanna] isn’t part of the Justice League of constantly rotating GIF sets on Tumblr. … Saoirse Ronan, the teenage girl from Atonement and The Lovely Bones, is a force of goddamned nature. Every single character in the movie that raises a hand to her in anger gets the absolute shit killed out of them. It’s like Soldier if Kurt Russell had been a 90-pound Irish female and people had actually watched that movie.

Leading Men Age, Leading Women Don’t | Vulture

There are more charts if you click through.

I’m so glad this info graphic is going around, because so many people don’t realize how ageism and misogyny play hand in hand and how the sexualization of young girls play into this.
