Gwendoline Christie stars in a deleted scene from The Last Jedi, and other celebrity stuff


There’s a lot of crossover between fans of Game of Thrones and Star Wars, and it was probably frustrating for them to watch the last two Star Wars movies knowing that Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) was playing the villainous Captain Phasma, but unable to see her face. In fact, it was probably frustrating to see her not used to better effect in general, but that’s another discussion.

In any cast, the deleted scenes for The Last Jedi, revealed when the movie was released for digital download on March 13, are helping ease the pain a bit. Check out this one below:

Okay, so I’m not sure what a “Whoop Hog” is and we only got to see a small portion of Christie’s face, but it’s better than nothing.

Of interest, Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) wasn’t the only Game of Thrones veteran in The Last Jedi. Roll call!

  • Ralph Ineson (Dagmer Cleftjaw) portrayed a First Order officer named Colonel Ansiv Garmuth.
  • Kate Dickie (Lysa Arryn) played the First Order officer who took the prank call from Poe Dameron in the film’s opening sequence.
  • Mark Lewis Jones (Shagga of the Stone Crows) was Captain Canady, whose First Order Dreadnaught was destroyed by the Resistance bomber, also in the film’s opening sequence.
  • Amira Ghazalla (Dothraki Crone) starred as Captain Canady’s First Order Commander.
  • Finally, Patrick O’Kane (Jaqen H’ghar when he changed his face in season 2) played a First Order officer.

I guess it pays to be on casting director Nina Gold’s good side.

Moving on, Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) had some fun on a photoshoot for a photoshoot for InStyle Magazine:

When Game of Thrones, fashion and puns collide, we all win…or die.

Finally, Rose Leslie (Ygritte) stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote her show The Good Fight, and to talk about the difficulties of avoiding Game of Thrones spoilers when you’re engaged to Kit Harington.

Happily, most spoiler-phobes don’t have to deal with this specific problem.
