On Monday it was announced that the latest additions to the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII include Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie. While most movie maniacs are already familiar with the Oscar-winning actress of 12 Years a Slave, many may not be as acquainted with Christie. Before joining George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones universe, Christie lived in the science-fastasy scene of Wizards vs. Aliens on the BBC. In addition to Star Wars, Christie has also nabbed the role of Commander Lyme in Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, replacing actress Lily Rabe.
