Star Wars: The Force Awakens: J.J. Abrams explains what’s in a name

 

Star Wars names are their own kind of art form.

 

Yeah, they may sound a little like John Travolta announcing people at the Oscars, but that’s their magic. They have the cadence of real names, but they’re like nothing we’ve ever heard.

 

They also tend to have deeper meaning that pushes subconscious buttons in our heads. Luke Skywalker is an obvious one: The last name is a bit on the nose for a tale about space adventure, but “Luke” also comes from the Latin lucere, which means light (although, remember, the devil started out as Lucifer).

 

Darth Vader, famously, comes from a variation on “dark” and the Dutch word for “father.” Han Solo, well… It suggested a roguish, loner quality, even if the smuggler was kind of a gadabout.

 

During Entertainment Weekly’s interview with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director and co-writer J.J. Abrams, we ended up talking about names a lot. At the start, he revealed something unexpected about the new villain played by Adam Driver – Kylo Ren is a name the character “came to” when he joined an order called the Knights of Ren.

 

I asked how he came to some of the other new names joining the Star Wars universe, and here’s what Abrams had to say …

CAPTAIN PHASMA

Turns out, Abrams sometimes does go out of his way to pay homage to unusual pieces of cinematic pop culture. The proof is Captain Phasma, a First Order warrior garbed in mirror-like armor, played by Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie.

New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ TV Spot Teases First Order

star_wars_episode_vii_the_force_awakens_tv_spot_2_still
Meet the new villains, same as the old villains…?

 

The Empire never ended.

 

 

A new look at the First Order, villains of this winter’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has appeared online as part of a new TV spot for the movie, and it’s bad news for anyone who hoped that the new source of evil in a galaxy far, far away was just getting started.

 

 

The shot — which last just over a second, and is surrounded by footage that has appeared in earlier trailers — features five figures in black, standing in front of a massive army of Stormtroopers and masses of what looks like Imperial Officers, with the wing of a TIE Fighter (oddly enough, with inverted colors from the ones seen in earlier movies) visible on the perimeter of the screen. One of the five figures, judging by the next shot in the trailer, is Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma, although the identities of the others remains unclear.

 

The shot is reminiscent of set-ups from the original Star Wars trilogy of an amassed Imperial Army — in Return of the Jedi, to meet the Emperor, for example — which, combined with recent revelations that the end of that 1983 movie didn’t actually mean the end of the Empire at all, raises the question: is the First Order simply the new name for a very old threat?

 

All will be revealed when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Dec. 18.

Gwendoline Christie Voices a Fashion-Forward Giraffe

BN-JP825_mitfor_KV_20150729120848

Odds are, you know Gwendoline Christie from her role as the formidable, honorable and armored Brienne of Tarth from HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” and you may be aware that she will be playing Commander Lyme in November’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2″ and Captain Phasma in December’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

 

But there is more to the towering British actress — she stands six feet, three inches — than expertise at playing badasses on screen. Christie has a deep knowledge and love for the fashion industry, and it shows in her latest role — narrating the audio version of “Mitford at the Fashion Zoo,” illustrator Donald Robertson‘s book for “childish adults that love fashion” and “sophisticated kids today who are early-adaptor chic freaks.”

 

“It was very exciting for me to inhabit a range of different characters very different from my character on ‘Game of Thrones,’” Christie told Speakeasy, “and to do something that was funny, primarily for children, but it’s for kids of all ages.”

 

Christie said she has been involved in the fashion industry since she was a teenager, and she has many friends who are designers, stylists and other creative types. She and Robertson share several acquaintances and friends, and they became friends after she first saw his “brilliant, current and funny” work on Instagram a few years ago. Once, Christie said, he told her that she looked like Mitford, the giraffe character who has appeared in Robertson’s Instagram works and is the protagonist of the new book.

 

“I promptly took his glasses and put them on, and I did indeed look very much like Mitford the giraffe,” Christie said. The star performs other voices in the story, as well, including that of “Zap Possum.”

Vivienne Westwood’s Autumn/Winter 2015-16 Campaign

This season’s campaign features actress Gwendoline Christie alongside male model Leebo Freeman, who together, represent the perfect unisex couple. Shot by Juergen Teller backstage at our Autumn/Winter 2015-16 Gold Label show in Le Centorial, Paris, they wear pieces from the Gold Label, MAN and UNISEX collections.

 

Vivienne says of working with Gwendoline:

“I met Gwendoline at our Red Label show in London. At the time we were planning our next Gold Label AW15/16 show- which was all about Unisex! In this collection the same suit can be worn by a man and a woman, then I realized Gwendoline would be perfect and would fit the clothes so I asked her to do it. She is such an attractive woman- when I asked her to be in the show, as well as the campaign, we got to know each other, she is a really interesting woman.”

I’ve added the photos from Vivienne Westwood’s page but hopefully I’ll find more HQ photos from the campaign.

Vivienne Westwood’s New Campaign Girl? It’s Only The Excellent Gwendoline Christie!

VivienneWestwood_DPS01_AW1516_1061x645

With our Game of Thrones withdrawal symptoms at an all time high (Just how could the series end like that? WILL WE EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN?) we are eternally grateful to Vivienne Westwood for today releasing images of Gwendoline Christie – aka Brienne of Tarth aka the baddest-but-softest character on GoT – in the as-to-be-expected loco autumn/winter 2015 campaign.

 

Following a Vivienne Westwood catwalk turn (well, actually two to be precise) in Paris this past March, Gwendoline has cemented her relationship with not only the Queen of Punk but her place in the fashion business, too. The ice blonde babe has long been adored by designers – often showcasing the anarchic eveningwear of Giles Deacon, when she isn’t hitting up the red carpet in prints from Peter Pilotto, dramatic satin from Jean Paul Gaultier or something short’n’sweet from Ralph Lauren, but this Juergen Teller-lensed gig marks a major point in her trajectory: previous campaign stars are as varied and fascinating as Pamela Anderson and Kate Moss.

 

‘I am so proud to be part of Vivienne Westwood’s A/W 15 campaign. I have admired Vivienne ever since I can remember for her revolutionary mind and exquisitely rebellious design…’ says Gwendoline. ‘I love the ‘UNISEX’ theme of this collection. It is so relevant for Vivienne Westwood to reassert their activist mindset and create a collection that takes us beyond our current gender stereotypes with beauty and intelligence.’

 

This Westwood collection is precisely on point when considering fashion and the wider world’s new and welcome openmindedness when it comes to the specifications of gender – and the wardrobe that comes with. Vivienne Westwood explains the Unisex concept, ‘Trousers for women, yes! Dresses for men, the same dresses that women wear? Do that! It takes a lot of trial and error. Dresses without a woman’s waist! But then you, the woman, look like a king or queen (from history or a parallel universe) – you the man look like a king or a queen! We love the change in proportion: the big shoulders give a small head- it’s so sexual because it’s new, it makes you look at the person from outside, it’s all so sexual because we’re looking at people with new eyes.’

This Game of Thrones star is Dame Viv’s new muse

Gwendoline Christie AKA Brienne of Tarth stars in Vivienne Westwood’s new campaign shot by Juergen Teller

VivienneWestwood_DPS01_AW1516_1061x645

 

Gwendoline Christie, who plays The Game of Thrones only female knight Brienne of Tarth, has been cast in Vivienne Westwood’s AW15 campaign. Christie is also slated to play Captain Phasma in the upcoming (and hotly anticipated) new Star Wars film. Here, the 6’2” actress is shot by Juergen Teller, alongside actor/model/death metal drummer Leebo Freeman.

 

This isn’t Christie’s first foray into fashion – she walked in Westwood’s Gold Label AW15 show at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, trading in her GoT uniform of heavy chainmail for a grey suit, black overcoat and giant hat.

 

“I met Gwendoline at our Red Label show in London,” explained the designer. “At the time we were planning our next Gold Label AW15 show – which was all about unisex! In this collection the same suit can be worn by a man and a woman, then I realised Gwendoline would be perfect, so I asked her to do it. When I asked her to be in the show, as well as the campaign, we got to know each other. She is a really interesting woman.”

 

Dame Westwood is clearly a fan of American TV stars, having also cast Breaking Bad’s Walt Jr (RJ Mitte) in her Gold Label AW15 show.
