Gwendoline Christie hounded for GoT spoilers during root canal

The Game of Thrones and Star Wars actress can’t escape plot-spoiling questions from fans

Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie cannot escape plot-spoiling questions from avid fans of the HBO fantasy series – even when she visits the dentist. 

Gwendoline, who plays Brienne of Tarth in the hit series Game of Thrones, as well as Captain Phasma in forthcoming film, Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, was questioned by The Late Late Show host James Corden.

No escape

James asked: ‘To be on Game of Thrones and Star Wars, are there constant people trying to get spoilers out of you?’

Gwendoline revealed: ‘There was one particular incident that was quite intense. It occurred when I went to the dentist for a root canal’.

Gwendoline described the scene in the dentist chair in the middle of a recent root canal procedure, saying: ‘I was lying back in the chair with a clamp in my mouth holding it open, and he [the dentist] just left the room; the door just clicked shut, and the nurse said, “Now tell me what happens in Game of Thrones!”‘
