Reading time 2 minutes

Gwendoline Christie is the new face of the Rolls Royce campaign of the iconic Phantom model. The actress who played Lady Brienne of Tarth in Games of Thrones, the warrior who defended the life of the girls of the house Stark, puts herself at the helm of a Rolls Royce. She is the star of Rules Rewritten, a short film shot by photographer Rankin for the luxury car manufacturer. "I've always loved the world of fashion and fashion photography," he admits. "I was captured by the portraits of Paolo Roversi, from the images taken by Tim Walker, Nick Knight, Steven Meisel ... and the list goes on. Their works convey a powerful narrative that ignites the imagination of the observer; they are not afraid to explore beyond the boundaries of creativity or to go beyond conventions and preconceptions when looking through the lens. And I also love the discipline and rigor of their works." Games of Thrones has catapulted Christie into the world of celebrities. "It was an incredible chapter in my life, and it was extraordinary to see the show grow and become a cultural phenomenon. I immediately felt a great connection with the character of Lady Brienne of Tarth. I admired her strength and her tireless desire for justice, and we both share a passion for the equestrian world." When you look at the TV series and get passionate about the characters, you often wonder what is going on behind the scenes, with the cameras turned off. "Being on the set with Daniel Portman (the Scottish actor who plays Podrick Payne, Brienne's squire) or Nikolaj Coster Waldau (aka Jamie Lannister) was a hoot. Ours was really a group of nice actors, something useful when you have to confront yourself with such a dark plot.” She admits that if she had not become an actress, she would have liked to be a civil rights lawyer. "Or a cloud."
