Does Gwendoline Christie have a hard time getting roles because of her height?
—Stephanie N., Tulsa, Okla.
A: Hardly. The Game of Thrones star, who plays warrior Brienne of Tarth, stands 6 foot 3. She uses her height to her advantage to land eccentric and unconventional roles—like detective Miranda Hilmarson in SundanceTV’s Top of the Lake: China Girl, premiering Sept. 10, in which Christie, 38, towers over co-star Elisabeth Moss (far left) by a foot.
