Star Wars: Captain Phasma comic and novel announced

FLICKERING MYTH – In more news coming out of Celebration, Lucasfilm has announced that Gwendoline Christie’s underused Star Wars: The Force Awakens villain Captain Phasma is set to take centre stage in her own comic book limited series and novel as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi publishing initiative.

Star Wars: Gwendoline Christie explains Captain Phasma keeping helmet on

EW‘The Force Awakens’ star on why it’s better that we never saw the chrome trooper’s face

 

A friend and I were arguing about a deeply urgent divisive issue: Whether Captain Phasma never removing her helmet in The Force Awakens was cool or not. “You don’t hire somebody as talented as Gwendoline Christie for a Star Wars movie and then never show her face, it wastes her performance!” my friend fumed. While I countered: “An actor’s movements and voice are every bit as important as their face, and there’s something intriguing about not fully showing a character, just like Darth Vader and Boba Fett in the first two films, especially since Kylo Ren was whipping off his helmet left and right!”

 

So I asked somebody else to settle this: Gwendoline Christie. This is a bit like a real-life version of the famous scene in Annie Hall when Woody Allen fantasized about pulling out philosopher Marshall McLuhan to back him up in an argument.

 

“I thought it was a really interesting opportunity because as an actor I’m interested in transformation and different kinds of roles,” Christie told EW. “What’s the role about? Who is the character? What does the character mean in the function of a project or story? I thought it was a really interesting opportunity to play a female character where we formed an opinion of her based on her actions rather than the way she has been made flesh. And that concept within a Star Wars movie, a mainstream phenomenon, was very modern and interesting and exciting. I made no secret of the fact I wanted to be in the film, I campaigned hard to be in the film, but to be in it as that kind of character – she’s a woman, she’s in armor, the armor isn’t sexualized, and in the film we don’t see the actor’s face – I thought that was an exciting, modern concept. And obviously, I’m delighted to be in another film [Episode VIII].”

 

Naturally, Christie is forbidden from talking about Phasma’s role in the next movie, which wil open Dec. 15, 2017. We also asked if she invented any backstory for her mysterious chrome First Order trooper – like the way Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) decided his character was from Yavin IV because it reminded him of his native Guatemala. Christie says she did, but doesn’t want to share that bit. “I went about preparing for that part the way I would for any role – to make some decisions about who the character is and why they do what they do. I think everybody would like to find out more about the character in the future.”

Star Wars Actress Confirms She Will Be in the Next Film

 

PEOPLE – Gwendoline Christie is returning to the big screen for next Star Wars installment.

 

“I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually,” the actress told PEOPLE Deputy Editor JD Heyman on Saturday’s red carpet preshow for the 2016 SAG Awards.

 

It’s exciting news, especially considering Christie was super amped about the role of Captain Phasma in the latest film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

“I was very overexcited. I made no secret of the fact that I really campaigned for the part for a long time,” said Christie, 37. “And then I was delighted when J.J. 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.”

 

The actress continued, reveling over the “incredible” costume and that fact that she would have the rare opportunity to play a female stormtrooper – a role she hopes will bring more diverse jobs to other women in Hollywood.

 

“I thought the costume was incredibly striking. I also just liked this notion of a female stormtrooper,” Christie said. “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.”

 

Earlier this month, the 6-ft., 3-in. Game of Thrones star told PEOPLE that she also liked that, while her Star Wars costume was amazing, she loved that it was armor.

 

“I was struck by how incredible it looked, but also I liked that it was stormtrooper armor,” Christie said at the time. “It hadn’t been sexualized or feminized in any way. I thought, ‘That is interesting. That’s very modern.'”

 

The 22nd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are being presented live from Los Angeles on TNT and TBS.
