Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie, and Domhnall Gleeson on The Last Jedi
They are the backbone of the First Order – Supreme Leader Snoke, Captain Phasma, and General Hux. And while the trio of characters represent the ultimate evil in the Star Wars Universe, the three actors who portrayed them are anything but. When you put Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie, and Domhnall Gleeson in a room together all day for Star Wars: The Last Jedi interviews, you get nothing but laughs.
In this interview, I ask Gwendoline about crawling out of the crash compactor and facing off with Finn. I ask Andy about his favorite Snoke theories and about his snazzy gold robe. And I ask Domhnall about his inspirations for Hux’s insane rants. I also asked the three about what they’d like to see Rian Johnson do in the new trilogy he’ll be writing. The answers will surprise you… in a funny way.
But the best reaction the three gave is when Serkis and Gleeson found out that Christie has her own Captain Phasma painted Nissan car!
