Gwendoline Christie’s Star Wars Episode VII Character Revealed

Gwendoline Christie, Star Wars Episode VII, Captain Phasma

No sooner do I post the rest of the Episode VII Vanity Fair shoot, then this leaks: Gwendoline Christie’s character for the upcoming Star Wars film.  She is none other than the super stormtrooper who wowwed us in the trailer.  The character’s name is Captain Phasma and is described only as a “First Order Officer”.

We’re more used to seeing Christie look like this:

The 6 foot 3 inch actress plays fan-favorite character Brienne of Tarth on HBO’s hit Game of Throne series.  It’s pretty clear she’s not on the side of the angels in Episode VII, but what The First Order is, we’ll have to wait and see.  MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!!! 5543ca93db753b82389cbd6e_vanity-fair-star-wars.0

One thought on “Gwendoline Christie’s Star Wars Episode VII Character Revealed”

  1. This film will have no shortage of new iconic characters. Come to think of it, it will have no shortage of old iconic characters.

    I’ve never seen GoT (I know, but I haven’t) but Christie seems like an imposing presence, and the concept of a chrome stormtrooper is inspired. Also, it’s about time we got a really good female SW villain.
