If you are among those fans who thing Captain Phasma's Armour was designed specifically with Gwendoline Christie in mind. You can think again.

If you are among those fans who thing Captain Phasma’s Armour was designed specifically with Gwendoline Christie in mind. You can think again.

In a recent interview with EW the ‘Game Of Thrones’ star revealed that the Armour that Christie wears in the film was originally meant for Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren character.

“I wish I could say to you, ‘Oh, but of course, the entire thing was designed specifically for me. If only that were true – if only!”

For the film Kylo Ren’s look was changed to have him wearing a hood over a cowl, which has a menacing mouth-toaster look, which is likely a tip of the hat to his hero Darth Vader.

In a related note J.J. Abrams talked about casting a woman in the role of Captain Phasma.

“I just thought it would be really cool if we could find someone to play the part who was female.”

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ hits cinemas on December 17.
