Game Of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie has explained how one of her co-stars tries to “creep” her out on the show’s set.

Christie plays Brienne of Tarth in the HBO show. In recent episodes, Brienne has found herself the subject of romantic attention from the character of Tormund, portrayed by Kristofer Hivju.

Speaking on the Late Night with Seth Meyers this week, Christie spoke of how Hivju “likes to continue being in character even off set”. “He will start chewing a sandwich wildly at me… really kind of making love to that sandwich as he eyeballs me,” she said.

Of some of the looks Hivju gives her as part of his role, Christie added: “In the script, it simply said, ‘Tormund gives Brienne a look’. I was not expecting the power, the magnitude of sort of intense sexual intention to pour out of a man’s eyes and cover me.”
