Star feared TV role was tall or­der

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - TV Legend -

GAME OF THRONES star Gwen­do­line Christie has re­vealed she thought she’d never get a job on screen be­cause she was so tall.

As Bri­enne of Tarth, the 38-year-old actress has a ma­jor role in one of the most pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion shows of all time, but ad­mit­ted she never thought she would go far be­cause she is 6ft 3in.

“I went to a bril­liant drama school but was made aware that I would prob­a­bly never work be­cause I don’t look like most ac­tors,” she said.

“I told my agent that I’d love to work on screen and he said ‘well, good luck with that’.”

How­ever, less than a year later, the strik­ing star scored the life-chang­ing role of Bri­enne.
