Gwendoline Christie would “absolutely” love to return to the “Star Wars” franchise.
The 43-year-old actress’ character Captain Phasma was killed off in ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi’ but the First Order stormtrooper appeared in the animated series ‘Star Wars Resistance’ and there’s even a ‘Star Wars: Captain Phasma’s Comic Book Tale, so the star would be thrilled if an opportunity to reprise the role arose.
She told Empire magazine, “I haven’t read the comics but, I mean, it’s Star Wars! I’d love it.
“There was a template for a character that people were really excited about. It would be great if they felt it was worth exploring, with fabulous action.”
While awaiting a potential movie return, the former ‘Game of Thrones’ star is excited about the possibility of playing ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’ as Phasma.
She joked: “This is the next step for me because as a teenager I was pretty obsessed with computer games and pretty good at them. I think it’s time to revisit them because they could be anything I originally wanted them to be. There are whole worlds out there [where] we can investigate our megalomania!
Gwendoline previously admitted she’s dreamed of being in a ‘Star Wars’ movie since she was just six years old.
She said: “I remember the exact moment I was cast as Captain Phasma in ‘Star Wars’. It was an incredible outburst of joy.
“For a long time, I had campaigned to be frank with whoever wanted to hear it,
“It was an ambition motivated by one of my first memories, when, at the age of six, I was placed in front of the flamboyant space opera.
“I marveled at this fantasy world in a way I could not yet express, with its misfits and droids and a woman who fought the enemy with intelligence, who was funny and refused to be chained – the inimitable Princess Leia.
“I remember thinking even then, ‘She’s not like all the other women on TV. We’re not going to tell her what to do.’ “
