There's no question that Gwendoline Christie plays a hero on "Game of Thrones." Brienne of Tarth is a fan favorite character and completely pure of heart. Her character in "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" is another story. She seems to be on the dark side of the Force, but Vanity Fair offered some hope along with its photo teaser for Christie's role in the upcoming movie.

Peter Mayhew, aka Chewbacca, tweeted this Vanity Fair shot of the actress. If you can't read the caption, the part for this particular photo reads, "First Order officer Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) surveys the rubble following an attack."
As Yahoo noted, Captain Phasma was first seen (briefly) in the second teaser for "The Force Awakens." The First Order was formed after the events of "Return of the Jedi," and this image makes Christie's character look like a Terminator Darth Vader. Here's some hope that she's not all bad. As Variety wrote in the story, "Should we really assume that Christie's Phasma is pure evil? In a franchise where a rakish smuggler can get the princess, a Sith Lord can be redeemed, and a stormtrooper can be a potential hero, anything can happen." Interesting.

Vanity Fair has been sharing all kinds of "Force Awakens" win, including details on a few other characters. "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" will be released in theaters on December 18, 2015.
