Probably the most bad ass part of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer - besides the Darth Vader mask - was the foreboding bad ass Chrome Stormtrooper.

Now Vulture apparently has the actor who is playing the character, and it's none other than 6'3" Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones.

Yep, it's claimed actress Gwendoline Christie is behind that Chome Stormtrooper mask.

And if you want to see Gwendoline wielding a lightsaber, check out the Brienne of Tarth vs. Jamie Lannister duel recreated with lightsabers.


"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has a December 18, 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
