Gwendoline Christie and Stephen Colbert discussing the notability of her roles as
Captain Phasma and Brienne of Tarth and how their images relate to the standard look of women in fiction.
It’s sad that female characters in practical, gender-neutral armor are still considered novelty and how the basic human decency of designing non-sexualized woman needs to be treated like something that deserves praise.
Here’s hoping that Phasma, with extended role compared to Force Awakens, will have an interesting storyline that enriches her intimidating and mysterious presence.
