STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII (2017): Gwendoline Christie To Return As Captain Phasma

Gwendoline Christie Captain Phasma Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Gwendoline Christie to Return for Star Wars: Episode VIII. We have not seen the last of Captain Phasma. After her appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it has been confirmed that Gwendoline Christie will return to reprise her role as the Commander in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Chatting with People Magazine during the Screen Actor Guild Awards, Gwendoline Christie was asked about whether she would return for Star Wars: Episode VIII. The actress replied, “I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually.” Despite being in a few scenes during Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Christie gained some attention for her character because of her unique look as a Chrome Storm Trooper. With Star Wars: Episode VIII already filming since January, we should expect the actress to return to filming the sequel soon. Hopefully her character gets expanded in the next film as well.

Star Wars: Episode VIII is scheduled to come out on December 15, 2017. You can also see the actress during the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones airing on HBO Sunday, April 24. 2016.
