The first time I saw Gwendoline Christie on screen was in a Game of Thrones featurette in which she talked about her audtiion for the role of Brienne of Tarth, and I instantly knew that she was going to be one of my favorite actresses. And when I heard that she was going to play a badass character named Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I was excited to see her play an entirely different role. You can see the excitement for the project she does, and her charm just reeks. This interview she did with Collider was no exception. 

Speaking to Collider’s Steve Weintraub, she talked about her The Force Awakens character, Captain Phasma, and tackles questions about lightsabers and droid gender. She also makes a Chewbacca impression that will brighten your day. Watch it above. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Dec. 18.
