Star Wars actress Gwendoline Christie fears a return to her character Captain Phasma may not be possible given the events in The Last Jedi but has expressed that she really wants to return to Phasma in episode 9.
Gwendoline Christie has recently revealed that she would love to make a surprise return to Star Wars as Captain Phasma in episode 9. While a return is unlikely, J.J Abrams could see Phasma as a character important enough to the story for him to fashion a return. As Liam Neeson said about a return as Qui-Gon Jinn, ‘anything is possible in Star Wars.’
“In truth, I don’t know [about returning as Phasma]. And that scares and upsets me because I really want to see this character explored.” Christie recently told Digital Spy. “I’m actually very invested in the character now. And that’s genuine. That’s not just chat. It has opened up a chain of stories and events in my mind about who Phasma is.”
Gwendoline Christie has been busy recently, most notably continuing production of the 8th and final season of HBO’s giant Game of thrones where she plays the awesome fan favorite Brianne Of Tarth.
Captain Phasma was not immensely popular among fans nor was she heavily disliked. Many believed that she had very little influence on the whole story and was more of a bit-part character. Fans likened her to the bounty-hunter Boba Fett from the original trilogy.Star Wars 9: Gwendoline Christie Wants Captain Phasma Return Click To Tweet
When The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson was asked about the future of Phasma, he confirmed that the Phasma’s role in the trilogy was meant to be small, and he hinted that the character will most likely not be making a return.
