Brienne Tarth, commonly known as Lady Brienne of Tarth, is a warrior of House Tarth, vassals to House Baratheon, and the only daughter of Lord Selwyn Tarth from the Game of Thrones series. The role was depicted by Gwendolyn Christie who showed grit and strength to stand toe to toe with all the scheming we saw throughout Westeros.
Game of Thrones fans will be delighted to know that fan favourite, Lady Brienne has found another starring role in the recently released “The Sandman” by Netflix.
Gwendolyn Christie was cast as the all-powerful Lucifer Morningstar in Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman” starring Tom Sturrridge as Dream of The Endless / Lord Morpheus.
The Sandman is the story of Lord Morpheus, the Lord of dreams. Faced with the possibility of forever separated from his essence and power after being trapped in a cage, The Sandman must face Lucifer Morningstar in a universal scale battle to retrieve his helmet after Azazel (a demon in possession of the helmet) chose Lucifer (portrayed by Christie) to be his fighter.
However, during the epic battle, Dream of the Endless bests Lucifer through “Hope” and must return to save mankind after “dream” was taking from them for hundred years when he was locked up in a cage by an amateur conjurer.
The Sandman premiered on August 5, 2022 and has continued to receive positive reviews from fans and critics for the casts, beautiful visuals and astounding performances. For our rating, we give The Sandman a 9/10.
