A new casting clue from GRRM seems to confirm that Gwendoline Christie, long a fan favorite for Brienne, has been cast in the role.
Huh.

Someone who clearly looks way too telegenic to be Brienne (something I observed upthread, actually) was actually the fan favourite? I thought fans were big on characters resembling their book counterparts.

The biggest thing she has going is that A)She is TALL and B) She is not so hot, that you can't ugly her down a little. In fact she is kind of average.

And GRRM has confirmed it:
