Whether you’re a fan of the show or not, there’s no denying that Game of Thrones has become hugely popular in the last couple of years, even appealing to those of us who would usually turn over such a fantasy-based show straight away. There are so many amazing female characters who ooze strength as well as beauty and with the show set to return very soon, we thought we’d take a look at a few of them.
Daenerys Targaryen (Mother of Dragons)
With a title like “Mother of Dragons”, you could be forgiven for thinking that this lady has dry, scaly skin, but in fact she’s a fearsome leader and true beauty. Given the fact that the actress who played her is rumoured to have made a complaint about how much time she spent naked on-screen, we’re sure she must have a very strict regime of waxing and moisturising during shooting!
The character Sansa is supposed to be in her early teens, so it’s no surprise that she’s still youthful and radiant but her colouring seems to make her look extra flawless at times. Her russet locks are a stark contrast to her alabaster skin and she gets to wear some amazing costumes, given the fact that she’s almost royalty.
Brienne of Tarth
For me, there are very few women on-screen who are more kick-ass than Brienne of Tarth. This giant of a woman stands at almost 6ft 3in and has a real rough-around-the-edges look, favouring suits of armour over gowns. However, her skin always looks blemish-free and flawless (albeit very often muddy and weather beaten!), and given the fact that she’s technically a ‘Lady’, we’re sure she knows the importance of a good skin routine!
Melisandre, also known as The Red Woman, is actually a priestess and performs some pretty mind-boggling magic, usually involving some sort of fire. She’s played by Dutch actress Carice van Houten who is almost 40, but looks barely a day over 30 with her complete lack of wrinkles or dark spots.
Margaery is a real force to be reckoned with, with her fresh-faced good looks and incredibly scheming mind, as well as having her brilliant grandmother (played by 77-year old Diana Rigg who is still a very beautiful lady) in her corner. Margaery has got the Throne in her sights and we can imagine she’d do anything to get there, but along with her ruthlessness goes an innate morality which makes her a really interesting character.
