Gwendoline Christie can rock a stormtrooper uniform just as well as a full plate of armor.

The Sussex-born actress, best known as the indomitable Brienne of Tarth on "Game of Thrones," reprises her role as the first female stormtrooper, Captain Phasma, in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi." Captain Phasma commands the First Order's legions of stormtroopers.

In honor of Christie's meteoric rise to fame, we're taking a look back at her career.

Born October 28, 1978, Gwendoline Christie grew up in the countryside of Sussex, England.

Her first passion was rhythmic gymnastics, but she suffered a serious back injury at age 11. "I was told that I wouldn't be able to dance again at that level," she told Access Hollywood.

She studied at the famous Drama Centre London, whose alumni include Michael Fassbender, Colin Firth, and future "Game of Thrones" castmate Emilia Clarke.

The school's rigor earned it the nickname Trauma Center. "I was told I was rubbish all day, every day," Christie told Stylist. "But really that prepares you for the amount of rejection you get on the job."

Christie stood at six feet and three inches — and her height soon became an obstacle. Casting directors turned her away saying that she was too tall.

In an attempt to appear more feminine, Christie wore makeup, heels, and long hair.

As a student, she modeled nude for Australian photographer Polly Borland in a series entitled "Bunny." Christie said the experience helped her come to terms with her body.

She made her theater debut in 2005 in Royal Shakespeare Company's "Great Expectations," and later landed roles in British productions of "Gilgamesh" and "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

Her first role in a major movie came in 2009, when she was cast in Terry Gilliam's "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus." Her IMDb credit says "Classy Shopper 2."

In George R.R. Martin's "A Song Of Ice And Fire," Brienne is a female knight who fights valiantly, demands respect from her male peers, and gives herself fully to those who earn her loyalty.

"I wanted the part so very badly because from reading the books the character was so like elements of myself," Christie told GamesRadar. "I've not come across a part like this before, whereby the complexities of being an extremely tall woman are explored."

Christie lost over 20 pounds and gained it back in muscle in preparation for her audition. She traded her blouses and skirts for androgynous clothing to look the part.

But by then, her fate was already sealed. The show's casting director saw Christie perform in "Great Expectations" and was convinced they found their Brienne. She got the part.

Christie has since become a fan favorite, winning hearts for her valor and for challenging gender stereotypes. Her character has survived through at least season seven.

In 2015, Christie took on her biggest silver-screen role yet in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." She plays Captain Phasma, the franchise's first female stormtrooper.

"I can remember the precise moment I was cast as Captain Phasma in 'Star Wars.' It was an explosion of unbelievable joy," Christie, a longtime "Star Wars" fan, wrote in a piece for Vogue.

Captain Phasma is no ordinary stormtrooper. She wears chrome armor and a tattered black cape. And she has a penchant for making life difficult for FN-2187, also known as Finn.

Phasma serves on the First Order, a military group inspired by the Galactic Empire.

Christie worked with "Force Awakens" director JJ Abrams to create the character. The armor, she said, allows her to focus on body language and voice, not looking beautiful.

Christie is slated to appear in at least three movies due in theaters in 2018: "The Darkes Minds," "In Fabric," and "The Women of Marwen" from filmmaker Robert Zemeckis.
