We already knew that Gwendoline Christie who plays the role of Brienne was a part of the new Star Wars movie and now another name has been added to the list. It has been revealed that Jessica Henwick who will appear in Game Of Thrones Season 5 as Nymeria Sand will be a part of Star Wars.
Jessica Henwick, 22, is a British actress of Singaporean descent who played the lead role in the BBC TV series Spirit Warriors. She’s also appeared in the likes of Obsession: Dark Desires, Silk, and will play one of the “Sand Snakes”, Nymeria, in next year’s fifth season of Game Of Thrones. Though we don’t have any details on who she might be playing in The Force Awakens, there’s a good chance it’ll be a physical role as Henwick is proficient in Chinese martial art, Wushu.
