A Happy Belated Birthday Video for Gwendoline

I wish this had been on time but someone (*ahem*Gwendoline) never told the public her birthday until the actual day. I heard this song and knew it was perfect for her.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Gwendoline Christie on Playing the Series’ First Female Villain

star-wars-the-force-awakens-captain-phasma-slice-600x200

A couple months ago, a minor controversy erupted when the official Star Wars Facebook page posted an image of Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), and some dickhead inevitably stepped in asking how we were supposed to know that was a woman beneath the armor. In all fairness to the guy (who should have known better to lead with “Not to be sexist but…”), most media embeds the knowledge that for something to be deemed feminine, it has to be sexual. There can be armor, but it has to be armor that accents the breasts, legs, and posterior.

 

star-wars-the-force-awakens-gwendoline-christie-captain-phasma-442x600To the eternal credit of the person running the Star Wars Facebook page, they responded “It’s armor. On a woman. It doesn’t have to look feminine.”

 

Christie hopes she’ll have viewers rethinking feminine power with Phasma, and in a new interview with EW, she talks a bit about her mysterious character. Without specifically mentioning the online fracas from a couple months back, Christie commented on how the costume flies in the face of how female characters are expected to dress:

 

“We know very little about her at this stage, but what I think people are drawn to is that this is a very progressive female character,” the actress says. “We see Captain Phasma, and we see the costume from head to toe, and we know that it is a woman. But we are used to, in our media, connecting to female characters via the way that they look, from the way they are made flesh.”

Gwendoline Christie is such a warrior, she even fought to be in ‘Star Wars’

 

la-ca-mn-sneaks-gwendoline-christie-20151101-001

Gwendoline Christie has various ways of putting off questions about Captain Phasma, the villainous Stormtrooper leader she plays in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and, sitting down for a chat during a recent visit to L.A. from her native England, she gave them all a workout.

 

There was the apologetic approach. (“I’m so sorry — this is where I’m going to frustrate you.”) There was mock indignation. (“You can’t ask me any of these questions, and I’m almost appalled that you have!”) There was the vague threat of what could happen if she were to spill any “Star Wars” secrets. (“Something bad would happen to me — and you.”)

 

Christie, 37, is accustomed to withholding plot details, having starred for the last three years as the fan-favorite warrior Brienne of Tarth on HBO’s hit fantasy series “Game of Thrones.” But with roles in not one but two of the most highly anticipated films of the holiday season — she’s in the final installment in the “Hunger Games” franchise, opening Nov. 20, as well as “The Force Awakens,” in theaters Dec. 18 — she finds herself sitting on a pile of spoilers like never before.

Gwendoline Christie on why her Star Wars: The Force Awakens villain is good news for girls

gwendoline-christie

The reason it matters so much in our world that Captain Phasma is a woman is because it doesn’t matter very much at all in her world.

 

That’s according to Gwendoline Christie, the Game of Thrones actress who plays the villainous First Order officer in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She tells EW in our Holiday Preview issue that the story takes a matter-of-fact approach to Phasma’s gender – and that seems to be part of her appeal.

 

“We know very little about her at this stage, but what I think people are drawn to is that this is a very progressive female character,” the actress says. “We see Captain Phasma, and we see the costume from head to toe, and we know that it is a woman. But we are used to, in our media, connecting to female characters via the way that they look, from the way they are made flesh.”

 

Phasma does not show skin. It’s not even clear how much – if at all – we’ll see Christie without her helmet. The silver armor also isn’t sculpted around the female form. That’s revolutionary for a genre in which women have traditionally been relegated to roles as scantily clad damsels in distress.

Happy Embarrassingly Belated Birthday

I’m embarrassed to admit I didn’t know it was Gwendoline’s birthday until her tweet. I promise I’ll do something more substantial in the next few days but I hope she knows how wonderful I think she is and I wish the most special of birthdays!
