“Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie says it is “special” to be a part of the new “Star Wars” movie, and every day on set is exciting.
The 38-year-old actress is still amazed she was cast as Captain Phasma in “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” – a role she will reprise in the next instalment “The Last Jedi” – and admits every day on set is still very “exciting”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“It’s so special. Everyone there… I can’t express to you… Everyone there is so enthusiastic and delighted,” she said.
“I loved ‘Star Wars’ from when I was really little. I didn’t think I’d be in a ‘Star Wars’ film.
“Whoever things they’re going to be in a ‘Star Wars’ film? Every day is really exciting,” she added.
Christie says her enthusiasm is shared by all of the cast and crew.
She added to Total Film magazine: “There’s a childlike enthusiasm as well, everyone from the director down says, ‘Woah, we’re doing ‘Star Wars’.’ “
