Gwendoline Christie got candid about filming the love scene with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4, as Brienne loses her virginity to Jaime. The actress revealed Nikolaj’s funny response to the moment.
The fourth episode from Game of Thrones’ final season had many highlights which were talked about by the Twitterati. But, there is one particular character arc (not talking about the unexpected Starbucks cup) that saw a roller-coaster journey over the gap of an episode. Yes, we are talking about Ser Brienne of Tarth, who lost her virginity to the man she has loved for a very long time, Jaime Lannister. The sequence was handled beautifully and had us rooting for the character.
While talking to Entertainment Weekly, actress Gwendoline Christie revealed Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s hilarious reaction to Brienne losing her virginity. “I received a text from Nikolaj just laughing. I sent back a being sick emoji. How modern,” Gwendoline revealed. The actress also revealed that while shooting for the scene, the actress had told Nikolaj, “Don’t you f*****g laugh!” Gwendoline continued, “There had to be a few conversations: “Now you’re going to need to be very professional about this…” But I care for the character so deeply so it was important to me that it was taken care of well and I believe it was.”
However, the end of the GOT episode saw Jaime leaving Winterfell and a heartbroken Brienne behind. Gwendoline stated that she was upset for Brienne and found it absolutely heartbreaking. While she has no judgement on Cersei, she termed Jaime and Cersei’s relationship as “dysfunctional.”
