All of the women in Game of Thrones, irrespective of whether they’re noble, whether they are highborn, whether they are prostitutes or servants, whether they’re wildlings, you name it, they’re all extremely strong, every single one of them. They have a reason to be strong because it is very much a man’s world and they have to exist within it and sometimes to be in that world you have to start behaving like a man or operating like a man. Thinking like a man but with a woman’s spin on it. – Michelle Fairley
