The The Force Awakens Twitter account, which appears to not be an official account, has posted what appears to be a leaked image from the May 7th Vanity Fair Star Wars issue that exposes details behind the Chrome Trooper spotted in the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. Apparently this trooper is called Captain Phasma, and it’s a she!
In fact, the actress playing Captain Phasma is none other than Gwendoline Christie, who is best known for her role as Brienne of Tarth on HBO’s Game of Thrones. You can check out the tweet below, but since it’s not official it could be fake, but I highly doubt it, especially because one of the comments on it is from Vanity Fair editor kateyrich, who appears to be trying to track down some contact information for the above mentioned Twitter account. That usually means she’s going for a cease and desist, but only time will tell if this image is legit or not. If anything, we will all know for sure on May 7th when the new issue of Vanity Fair goes on sale.
Do you think this image is the real deal? If so sound off in the comment section below about the big reveal!
