With one picture, a lot of rumors have been confirmed. Gwendoline Christie will be in the new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as Captain Phasma of the First Order. The First Order is the newest version of the evil Empire. Christie is playing a villain, which is very much unlike her character on “Game of Thrones” as Brienne of Tarth, who is as honorable as Ned Stark.

This doesn’t mean that she’s completely bad since, in the Star Wars franchise, the characters are more dynamic than just good or bad. The characters have back stories which explain how they got to this point in their lives. One thing is for sure; she’s going to be a force to reckon with if she is bringing any of her fighting skills with her from the set of “Game of Thrones.”

She’s going to give the Rebels a really hard time. You can just tell from the photo that she is someone you don’t want to mess with. Nicknamed the “Chromtropper,” Christie will bring an intimidation factor from her experience of being a lady that one should not pick fights with. There may also be a tenderness that she brings to her warrior counterpart, Brienne.
