May the 4th is truly international Star Wars day, and as such, Vanity Fair has been revealed all sorts of goodies from the upcoming movie The Force Awakens.
The Phasma Menace
Today a lot of characters were revealed including Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christine’s role (you may know her character Brienne of Tarth) as Captain Phasma.
First Order office Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) surveys the rubble following an attack. Opposite, a small galaxy’s worth of tracking dots affixed to Lupita Nyong’o’s face allowed artists at Industrial Light & Magic to transform her into the C.G.I. character Max Kanata.

Thats right! The badass chrome trooper we saw in the teaser trailer is going to be played by a phenomenal actress. Already having close quarters combat skills from her time in Game of Thrones, we can expect nothing less than a stellar performance from Gwendoline as she dons her shiny storm trooper helm, cape, and blaster.
Im hoping she has some kind of anti-lightsaber weapon like the Mandalorians did in the animated Clone Wars series.
