It'll be interesting to see how they cast for Brienne in Season 2 -- how much of an emphasis they put on the looks and size and everything. Not too many 6+ foot tall ugly actresses out there.

This was the casting call:
[BRIENNE TARTH] FEMALE. Age: 20s. A skilled warrior in service to Renly Baratheon. Larger and stronger than most men, we first meet Brienne when she wins a tournament, defeating the famed Loras Tyrell. Big-boned and plain faced, she has an awkward personality, but is also honest and loyal. She is derisively known as “Brienne the Beauty”… RECURRING. (Season Two: 6 episodes/Season Appearances: Multiple Season) Must be a MINIMUM of 5’10″. Do NOT submit actresses that look like models. We are looking for a big, WARRIOR-TYPE woman that’s more MANLY than womanly.
Apparently this Dutch actress has been campaigning for the role, though it looks like she's "only" 5'9".
