Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones, revealed that the actor who plays Tormund Giantsbane continues his lustful leers toward her when the cameras aren’t rolling. During an interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Christie said that Kristofer Hivju gives her that awkward, loving stare while the two are eating lunch.
She said: “He will start, you know, chewing a sandwich wildly at me. Masticating wildly at me. Really kind of making love to that sandwich as he eyeballs me.”
To make things worse, she explained that the script called for Tormund to give Brienne only “a look.” She never dreamed of being the target of such a wild-eyed man. She joked, “I was not expecting the power, the magnitude of sort of the intense sexual intention to pour out of a man’s eyes on top of me.”
