Gwendoline Christie – 6’3” (190 cm)
At 6’3”, the fierce English actress Gwendoline Christie is definitely one of the tallest Game of Thrones cast members. But at the beginning of her career, her height was actually an issue for her. She was told she “would probably never work because [she] didn’t look the same as most actors”, due to her tall physique.
Nowadays, Christie is a celebrated actress. She is best known for her role as Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones, but has also wowed us as the First Order stormtrooper Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. She proves that great talent comes in all shapes and sizes.
