Captain Phasma will be returning for the next chapter of Star Wars: Episode VIII. Gwendoline Christie as confirmed the news to People Magazine at the Screen Actors Guild awards on 30 January.


The Game of Thrones actress mentionned this to People Magazine: “I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually,” she said. “I was very overexcited. I made no secret of the fact that I really campaigned for the part for a long time. And then I was delighted when JJ Abrams wanted to have me in the film and then wanted to cast me in this role that had originally been designed for a man.”

She added: “I thought the costume was incredibly striking. I also just liked this notion of a female stormtrooper. I felt it encouraged diversity and it was doing something new and it was an interesting bit of casting for women, and I hope that in something that was such a mainstream success it would breed more of those kind of opportunities for other women.”

Gwendoline will be back as Captain Phasma, a stormtrooper leader in the First Order cabal in Star Wars: Episode VIII set for December 2017.
