I was beyond excited when I first read that The Force Awakens would feature a powerful female villain, and even more thrilled that she would be brought to life by Amazon goddess Gwendoline Christie. (I won’t spoil anything, but let’s just say that I was unhappy with Captain Phasma’s limited screen time in The Last Jedi…).
Now, y’all can decide for yourselves whether the idea was silly or inspired — or a bit of both — but Holden and I began joking with each other about what Phasma’s life would be like when she wasn’t at work. It wasn’t long before the joking turned into motivated shopping for a mask online, and then to the creation of a running list in our photography notebook called “What is Phasma Doing?” Yesterday afternoon, we were finally able to put these ideas to the test.
Judging by the awesome comments to a previous Star Wars-themed caption, a good many of you will enjoy these. And we hope you do, because we’re already talking about taking Phasma on the road with us, for future adventures. ~C
