How Game of Thrones redefined female roles on television

Posted Wednesday 17 Apr 2019

Ahead of the Game of Thrones final series trailer, the NZ Herald notes how the show redefined the way we see women on screen. Iain Glen, who plays Ser Jorah Mormont, says that "Right from the word go, there's been no division between male and female character influence," while Gwendoline Christie says her character, the imposing Brienne of Tarth, "transcended the female presentation that we were used to in mainstream entertainment."
