They've cast the part of giant woman knight Brienne of Tarth, a great character from the Song of Ice and Fire book series, for the second season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" series.
Gwendoline Christie doesn't look how I envisioned Brienne, but she's 6'3", which is a great start. I'm sure the show will fit her to the character's look.
If you haven't read these books, get to it! You can get the first four for less than $20 total. The new one comes out Tuesday! I ate them up.
