Gwendoline Christie's Role In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Revealed?

Gwendoline Christie's Role In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Revealed?

Badass Digest are back with another bit of Star Wars info, this time pertaining to Game Of Thrones fave Gwendoline Christie's role in the currently shooting movie. Click on for more, but beware of possible character SPOILERS.

We predict what J.J. may do now that he's cast Gwendoline Christie and we like it a lot!

If You've read the last round of Star Wars spoilers from Badass Digest, you'd know they believe that John Boyega's (Attack the Block) character in Episode VII will in fact be a rogue Storm Trooper who teams up with Daisy Ridley's female lead to go in search of Luke Skywalker. Well, now they have some more info on a different character who they reckon will tie in with Boyega's -- one who'll be played by Brienne of Tarth herself, Gwendoline Christie. According to the site, the 6ft 3 actress will play an Imperial Officer -- specifically Boyega's commanding officer -- who will be chasing the deserter down over the course of the movie. Not only that; they also hear that this character may have been gender swapped from the original script, and speculate that it might have been the role Benedict Cumberbatch was up for. That's all hearsay of course, but they do feel confident in Christie's role at the very least. If true, what do you think? Would she suit the role? Or were you hoping she'd be playing a good guy/Jedi? Sound off below.

Sounds cool if true, be fine with that. Can't wait to find out more about this, easily my most anticipated film for the next few years
GreenLantern519 - 7/22/2014, 12:43 PM
She's a good actress on GOT, so I'm sure she'll be good in Star Wars.
batz11 - 7/22/2014, 12:44 PM
That's one bad-ass lookin' man there!
SpiderFraud - 7/22/2014, 12:46 PM
I like this whole AWOL Storm Trooper story they plan on doing (if this is true).

I thought all the Storm Troopers are clones, though? I'm not really all that knowledgeable on SW lore.

I'd climb that tree. If true, I like it.
McGee - 7/22/2014, 12:52 PM
I remember wanting to be her boyfriend...until I thought about it...

Klone - 7/22/2014, 12:53 PM

But she'll also be the catalyst for da Bowl!
ckal - 7/22/2014, 12:56 PM
Why the [frick] would an officer desert herself just to track down one grunt deserter?

I swear, either these are false rumors made up by mongoloids, or these are real and this will be the most retarded movie of all time.
MercwithMouth - 7/22/2014, 12:56 PM
Sure, whatever... Star Wars, yay...

In more important news, FINALLY got the entire series of Game of Thrones! Now I can catch up before season 5!
CavEl - 7/22/2014, 12:57 PM
@ McGee - Lols, only a chump gets beaten by his woman.

Okay, so someone hook a brother up, neither Boyega nor Christie are Jedi? Are we going to see any lightsaber action? Cause I'm seconds away from not being interested in this movie.
duey2000 - 7/22/2014, 12:57 PM
It's all hearsay. I read multiple versions of what The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones were going to be like before their movies came out and each time they were way off. Sure there is a scene here and there that will be leaked that is accurate, but for the most part this stuff is all bunk. Just wait and see...
RorMachine - 7/22/2014, 12:57 PM
OR, maybe there's much more too it all and it just hasn't been revealed yet??

But no, you're right, prob just retarded writers.
CavEl - 7/22/2014, 12:58 PM
@ Ckal - A commanding officer can't dessert silly, especially if they have a justified reason to be away from their post.
MercwithMouth - 7/22/2014, 12:59 PM

Why you gotta bring logic? Isn't the point to completely overreact to every piece of news that comes out? Is that not the Jedi way?
ckal - 7/22/2014, 1:04 PM
ror the other guy is right, way to bring the logic. there are definitely no retarded writers in the history of cinema
ckal - 7/22/2014, 1:05 PM
hopefully there is more to it all, and more hopefully it shapes up to be something different entirely.

i'm just really not feeling the story line rumors i've heard so far. not what I was expecting really.

but we haven't heard anything about the villain plot lines yet so maybe there is hope still
ralfinader - 7/22/2014, 1:09 PM
Still stormtroopers 30 years after the Ewoks saved the universe (and the heroes of the movies did jack shit except spin their wheels)? Sounds stupid. The Empire is dead. Killed by 3 foot tall mini-wookies, slightly smarter than dogs. God Lucas sucked.
Gusto - 7/22/2014, 1:09 PM
Girls can't be commanding officers!
Unless it's commanding in the kitchen!
Fun1gUy - 7/22/2014, 1:09 PM
@MCGEE, LOL that's so true for us me
MrSotoMan - 7/22/2014, 1:10 PM
I'm just going to wait for a trailer. Or better yet....the movie.

Secrecy on Star Wars Episode 7 is like trying to find the truth behind aliens, you're never going to find it, just heresy.
Fun1gUy - 7/22/2014, 1:10 PM
MEN, sorry
Fun1gUy - 7/22/2014, 1:10 PM
@GUS, OMG, that was actually a damn good one
batz11 - 7/22/2014, 1:11 PM
Bitching &
CaptShipwreck - 7/22/2014, 1:11 PM
@ gusto

MercwithMouth - 7/22/2014, 1:13 PM

Pretty sure I'd take instructions from Gwendoline in the bedroom, too.

Why'd you hit it?

Because it was there, man.
MrBlackJack - 7/22/2014, 1:14 PM
Badass Digest? Seriously?
Klone - 7/22/2014, 1:17 PM

*SPOILER*Tywin rapes Jon Snow and he gives birth to Ygritte*

MercwithMouth - 7/22/2014, 1:21 PM

I've already read the synopsis for every episode... But nice try sheepshagger...
cipher - 7/22/2014, 1:28 PM
Going by these rumours, I feel fairly confident in saying that we will be seeing a sort of castrated Sith lord who channels his/(her?) force/raw sexual energy through his/(her?) lightsaber/synthetic strap-on/third leg and expels it via forced-induced auto-erotic asphyxiation.

At least, that's what I took from this.

FerFogs - 7/22/2014, 1:30 PM
@MercwithMouth - you'd need an instructions manual to bang a girl as big as that!
Meady - 7/22/2014, 1:30 PM
I wonder if she was picked on at school.

I'm starting to believe that JJ Abrams is going for the angle of disinformation, instead of the airtight secrecy we were used to see from the previous SW films.
