Who is Gwendoline Christie? You may recognize her from the TV series, Game of Thrones in which she plays the role of Brienne of Tarth. She’s also played the role of Commander Lyme for the upcoming Hunger Games sequels, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 and 2. Now she’s going to be in Star Wars.
The 6’3″ tall woman will be playing a role that, once again, is completely unknown.
Thank you for all the wonderful good wishes about Star Wars!!!! I am so excited and so very grateful!! A real dream come true! #overthemoon
