JJ Abrams, “Star Wars 7” adds two more to the cast. It is no surprise that “12 Years A Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o was gonna get added because she has been rumored for a long time now and it’s finally official that she’s definitely in! “Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie who is known for her role as Brienne Maid of Tarth have also been added to “Star Wars 7”.
As you can see, the roles of the new cast are being kept secret for now but we’ll learn more later.
I am assuming though, that Lupita is gonna be the main female lead and she will probably steal the show. JJ is well known for creating interesting female characters and he’ll probably do that with Lupita. Is she gonna be a Jedi being mentored by Luke Skywalker? Wouldn’t surprise me if she’ll be the one with the light saber fighting Adam Driver’s villain character.
HBO’s Game of Thrones have found their Brienne, Maid of Tarth, who is known as the wench in “Clash of Kings”, the second book of the “Song of Ice and Fire” series. Gwendoline Christie can be seen in the Terry Gilliam’s “Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassius” which is the only film she starred in her acting career. This will be her next acting gig.
The Hollywood Reporter, reports.
They better make her look ugly for the Brienne, Maid of Tarth character, ’cause that’s how she was in the second book “Clash of Kings”. She’s a skilled warrior in the book and she wants to become a knight. Catelyn orders her to escort Jaime Lannister to King’s Landing, hoping to exchange him for Catelyn’s captive daughters. Catelyn Stark was Lord Eddard’s wife. I won’t go any further with the plot points, I just wanted to give you an idea what this Brienne character is like.
I feel she’s going to be another popular character for the “Game of Thrones” series. I’m reading the third book, “Storm of Swords” and Brienne is throughout most of the third book too.
These are great books and if you haven’t started these books, you really should.
