Game of Thrones Stars Gwendoline Christie and Pedro Pascal Talk Season Four, No Spoilers

To say people are excited about the return of Game of Thrones is an understatement. More viewers are tuning in to watch the HBO series than ever before. The promise of another colorful wedding is only part of the appeal; the furthering of unexpected relationships and the welcome presence of characters both old and new give the season an interesting kickoff. I'm a fan of both the A Song of Ice and Fire books and the television series, so the chance to interview the actors behind two of the series' most interesting characters was sent from whatever heaven in which a good portion of the Stark clan now rests.

Those characters are Brienne of Tarth and Oberyn Martell, better known as the Red Viper. Stepping out of their roles and elaborate costumes, Gwendoline Christie and Pedro Pascal prove to be infinitely more delightful than their characters. That fact made it a whole lot easier to spend some time nerding out with them.
