Star Wars Covers Entertainment Weekly With An Exclusive Inside Look at The Force Awakens

Let’s say you fired a beam of light into the sky at the exact moment J.J. Abrams said yes to directing the launch of a new Star Wars trilogy. As of right now, it would still be traveling through the vast emptiness of space, more than a year from the nearest star to our own.

 

When you think about it that way, the makers of The Force Awakens were moving a lot faster than lightspeed.

 

In that same three-year period, Abrams and his cast and crew ventured through unfathomable timespace to an entirely different galaxy – and back again. They bring with them the start of a new saga that pretty much our entire pop-culture- consuming planet is awaiting.

 

The good news: It’s almost here. The bad news? As Yoda says, “Patience you must have.”

“I wish I could say to you, ‘Oh, but of course, the entire thing was designed specifically for me,’” says Gwendoline Christie. “If only that were true — if only!” It turns out, Captain Phasma was tailored just for her. The chrome-plated trooper originated as a design for Kylo Ren, but then J.J. Abrams was inspired to create a new character. “I just thought it would be really cool if we could find someone to play the part who was female, and I’m a fan of Game of Thrones; Gwendoline is in that show, [The Force Awakens casting director] Nina Gold casts it, she knew Gwendoline, obviously,” he says. “We were very lucky to get to have her in the movie. She’s not in many scenes, but her presence is powerfully felt when she’s there.”

THE PASSION OF THE CHRISTIE

TEXT PAUL FLYNN

IN THE GRAND CULTURAL LINEAGE OF GRACE JONES, BRIGITTE NIELSEN, AND TILDA SWINTON, GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE IS REORDERING SOCIETY’S VIEW OF ANDROGYNOUS, POWERFUL GLAMOUR. AS THE TOWERING BRITISH TALENT SCALES THE SUMMIT OF HOLLYWOOD WITH THIS WINTER’S STAR WARS AND THE HUNGER GAMES—AND CONTINUES HER BELOVED REIGN ON HBO’S GAME OF THRONES—SHE KICKS BACK TO TAKE IN THE LONG VIEW OF A RISE LESS ORDINARY

 

THIS STORY IS AN EXCERPT FROM V98. ORDER YOUR COPY HERE NOW

 

When she was a student at Drama Centre London, Gwendoline Christie told the school administrator, Maggie Wilkinson, a tiny white lie. By way of induction, it’s customary for first-year students to help with the production of graduating third-year shows. When she was handed a wrench and told to disassemble a stage, Christie thought, I can’t do that, I’m wearing a Sonia Rykiel jumper. She told Maggie instead that she was a dab hand at filing. As an actor, Christie is living proof that in the most curious acts, magic lies. And so it goes.

 

The following Christmas, Ms. Wilkinson recalled Christie’s administrative admission and asked if she would like a job for the holidays. The fabulous British character actor Simon Callow had asked if there was a student who would catalog his 4,000-strong compact disc collection. “Mainly classical,” notes Christie now. “Quite esoteric.”

 

Over an early lunch of smoked salmon and avocado at the Downton-ish central London restaurant, the Delaunay, she explains it was Callow who showed her a way to be an actor of integrity and ambition. “He was a very, very strong figure at the forefront of my development into adulthood.” She pauses. “Which came late.” Another pause. “Which might not have happened yet.” She laughs. She is wearing a vintage longer-than-floor-length Hussein Chalayan black shift, “so that I can be my own lady-in-waiting, holding my train,” and “a simple Chanel pump” (not simple at all, as she admirably shows by placing her right foot on the table).

 

Christie went on to work for Callow on and off for years, through the downtime of her early career—researching and collating materials for his memoir and walking his two beloved boxer dogs across Hampstead Heath. Callow is one of the grandees of British theater, probably still best known to populist audiences for his funeral in Four Weddings and… “He gave me a key to the house and said, ‘Make yourself at home, I trust you.’ To show someone who is struggling such kindness, to say, ‘Child, never give up,’ for nearly eight years? He did it without regard for how it would reflect on him. He’s unselfish and a big part of why I had the confidence to inhabit who I am. Because he was one of the first, maybe the first British actor to be openly homosexual at the start of his career and be unapologetic about it all. I miss him. You can’t replicate that kind of artistic patronage.”

Gwendoline Christie isn’t being told ‘no’ anymore

gwendoline-christie-sept-2015-gi

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.
