If you've only fallen in love with Gwendoline Christie recently, then WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG? She's the baddest bitch in Westeros, in the universe and in this reality. Not only is she an important character in Game of Thronesshe's also CAPTAIN PHASMA, one of the big baddies in the new Star Wars trilogy. The only way she could be more relevant to us is if she was picked to play Captain Marvel. OMG if that happens, I get all the credit, okay?

Gwendoline Christie is as excited about her characters as her fans are, that's why she's so great.

That comes from this moment (in case you forgot):
