Christie’s Portrayal of Captain Phasma

Gwendoline Christie made her debut as Captain Phasma in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She reprised the role in the 2017 film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In both films, Christie’s portrayal of Phasma was praised for being powerful and intimidating.

However, some fans were disappointed that Captain Phasma did not have a larger role in the films. Her screen time was limited, and her character arc was not fully developed. Nevertheless, Christie’s performance as Phasma was widely regarded as a highlight of both films.

Other Appearances

In addition to the films, Captain Phasma has also appeared in other Star Wars media. She is a playable character in the video game Disney Infinity 3.0, and she appears in several novels and comic book series.
