Badass Digest has a new report that suggests that Gwendoline Christie will play a villain in Star Wars: Episode VII. She will play John Boyega's Imperial commanding officer in the film, who becomes angry that he deserted and begins looking for him. The website reveals that she has been training with a lightsaber, meaning she's either an Imperial officer with a lightsaber or she's possibly a Sith.
The website also speculates that Christie's role may ave previously been a male role, as Benedict Cumberbatch was rumored to be playing an Imperial officer in an earlier draft of the script.
