Gwendoline Christie Loves Being a New Kind of Action Heroine

PEOPLE – Gwendoline Christie credits Carrie Fisher – with her buns, metal bikini, and laser blaster – as the inspiration for a career that includes fierce medieval fighter Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones and stormtrooper commander Captain Phasma in the record-setting hit Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

“I loved Princess Leia, and that even in my infant mind I remember thinking, ‘She’s a different kind of woman to the women I see in films,’ ” Christie, 37, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I think it must have been quite forming.”

 

“I’ve been lucky enough to play a couple of parts of women who are very driven and somewhat unconventional,” she adds. “I love playing women who kick ass!”

 

Christie, who first watched Star Wars when she was 6 years old, recently told Fisher she was a huge influence on her as a young girl.

 

“I said, ‘I feel that perhaps watching you planted a seed in my mind.’ ” To which Fisher joked, ” ‘I did actually plant a seed in your mind. It’s true.’ She’s incredible.”

 

When the 6’3″ actress finally stepped on The Force Awakens set to shoot, she couldn’t believe the day had finally arrived.

 

“I said to the people around me, ‘So, is this really happening?’ ” she recalls. “Walking onto the set with that incredible costume, the sets were so enormous and so detailed, everything seemed real … and I was in it.”

 

The costume, says Christie, made her role even more appealing. “I was struck by how incredible it looked, but also I liked that it was stormtrooper armor. It hadn’t been sexualized or feminized in any way. I thought, ‘That is interesting. That’s very modern.’ ”

 

Now she’s one of the Star Wars women future generations will watch closely, as she once did.

 

“People talk about having dreams come true,” Christie says. “This is really a lot of young dreams come true.”

Star Wars actresses a force to be reckoned with

ASIA ONE – One is a Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner for 12 Years A Slave and the other is a fan favourite from the most downloaded TV show on the planet, Game Of Thrones.

 

But for Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has pride of place on their resumes.

 

Both actresses grew up watching Star Wars on television and idolised Princess Leia.

 

And during their joint interview at the Los Angeles Convention Center, they were bubbling over with enthusiasm even as they struggled to sidestep questions because of the non-disclosure agreement all cast members are bound to.

 

Kenyan-Mexican Nyong’o, 32, is fully CGI as Maz Kanata, a tiny wizened pirate with a colourful past and a mentor of sorts to Han Solo.

 

And you never see Briton Christie, who’s 37 and standing at an imposing 1.91m, without her full body armour as Captain Phasma, member of The First Order, leader of the Stormtroopers and the first female villain in the Star Wars movies.

 

If you didn’t get enough of them in The Force Awakens, you’ll be glad to know they are slated to play larger roles in the sequels.

 

Was there an unforgettable moment for you while filming?

 

Christie: I put the costume on and I walked onto the set, and what was around me was wonderfully, magically childlike…Being in a Star Wars world was gloriously euphoric for me.

 

Nyong’o: I was in a bit of a daze for the first days. I was doing (motion capture) so that was a whole other world of trying to figure out what on earth was going on. But a few days in, I was on set and I had just a moment when I looked around and it was the hugest set I’ve ever been on and it’s like my mind exploded for a moment.

 

How was the audition process like?

 

Nyong’o: Shortly after the Oscars, I was in Morocco doing a photo shoot. I got an e-mail from my agent saying (director) J.J. Abrams wants to talk to me. I had a conversation with him and he told me a little bit about Maz Kanata. He sent a script to Morocco for me to read. I had about two hours to quickly go through it and decide. I called him back and said I’m interested.
