Some of the most popular pop culture books, films, and t.v shows involve love triangles, and while the Game of Thrones universe is filled with plenty of gruesome deaths it is no exception. Brienne of Tarth, now Knight of The Seven Kingdoms, is one woman who has proved she can hold her own and waits for no man. Still, her affections are obviously set on Jaime Lannister. Sure he has a chiseled face and body with golden locks- but GOT fans are shipping another love interest for Brienne - redheaded wildling Tormund.
Since the day he set eyes on "the big woman" as he so affectionately called her, Tormund has taken every opportunity to shoot his shot to try and woo Brienne. Bored Panda has curated the following list of "Briemund" memes that hilariously highlight our favorite thrones will they or won't they romance. So scroll down and don't forget to upvote your favorites, warning some of these are so spicy you might need a big glass of milk.
Tormund is portrayed by actor Kristofer Hivju. He may not actually come from beyond the wall, but possibly close to it. Hivju is from Oslo, Norway but currently lives in Trondheim, Norway. As with most actors he owns homes in Los Angeles, California as well as London, England. The Norwegian actor has joined the multitude of actors hopping the pond to the U.S to share their talents.
Don't let Hivju's wildling appearance fool you, this distinguished actor is classically trained. The actor studied theater at the Russian Academy of Theatre Arts. While many stage actors traditionally kept to this more classical form of theater, Hivju is part of the current community of performers who have been able to transfer seamlessly between live performances and the screen.
The valiant Brienne of Tarth is played by the talented Gwendoline Christie. Now known for her playing an utter bad*ass on screen, Christie was close to playing a much softer role - a nun. No not onscreen but in real life.After careful thought she decided to take on acting instead and every Game of Thrones fan is grateful that she did.
Christie makes an impression on the red carpet not just for her impeccable style but for her height. Standing at 6"3 she says her height has helped her with her dating life in an unexpected way: "I wouldn’t say it has increased my options. But I’ve always thought that the height is a very good detector of the good ones: because if they can get over that, they have got good mettle." We think a certain red-head is up for the challenge.
So what do Hivju and Christie think about their onscreen romance? “I think Tormund’s love for Brienne is real and I think that at least in Season 7 he found a purpose in life, because one thing is to run away from death, it’s another thing to find a perspective,” Hivju said in an interview, “His goal in life is to make babies (with Brienne), big strong babies that conquer the world — so if you ask Tormund who should sit on the Iron Throne, it’s one of their kids.” We approve.
