As one of the newcomers to Season 2 of Game Of Thrones, Gwendoline Christie, who plays one of the knights in Renly Baratheon’s retinue, is stepping right into the fire, as Westeros hurtles further and further into outright warfare.

[There's] masses of action scenes,” confirmed Christie at the launch party for Game Of Thrones: The Complete First Series on DVD and Blu-ray. ”There’s lots of sword fighting, lots of fighting… there’s some canoeing.”

Christie plays Brienne of Tarth, a remarkable role even on a show like Game Of Thrones which has no shortage of strong female characters.

Game of Thrones season two premieres Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 9/8C on HBO.
