J.J. Abrams talked with about the character of Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie, with Collider.
“I can only say that Gwendoline Christie is my favorite,” Abrams told Collider.
“She just killed it. You think, ‘Well, what? It’s wearing a costume.’ But it’s a lot to wear and to have a performance when you’re wearing that requires a different kind of skill set and an additional talent, and she’s got it.”
“It’s an incredible thing to work with her,” Abrams added. “I am glad that a character has been designed that is visually as stunning as that is, because she deserves it and the fans do to. When I first saw that design my mind was blown because it looked so undeniable.”
“It was really important for a sense of authenticity that the set be built, the exterior, interior, that we go to real locations that were actually in the sun,” the director said. “I know it sounds silly, but in the behind the scenes reel you see this giant gimbal of the Millennium Falcon cockpit and it was outdoors.”
“The reason we did it – we didn’t have to do that, but the reason we wanted to was, you just can’t fake sunlight,” he added, talking about using as little green screen as they can for the film. “You can do a pretty good imitation, but you can just tell.”
Out of the need to be secret, we’re not actually able to get everything we need to do our jobs as well as we could,” Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Actor Tim Rose, who played Ackbar in Return of the Jedi told The Australian.
