Vanity Fair Reveals Further Star Wars: The Force Awakens Cast Details

Annie Leibovitz continued her legacy of photographing the cast and crew of forthcoming Star Wars films, this time capturing images from the set of The Force Awakens released on May the Fourth. The new pics confirm previous speculation that the actor behind Kylo Ren’s evil mask is Girls star Adam Driver. Academy award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o posed while made up for motion capture, indicating that her character will be computer generated.

Additional reports from a forthcoming Vanity Fair piece reveal that actress Gwendoline Christie lurks behind another mask, that of the chrome-plated stormtrooper scene in the recent trailer. Her character will be called Captain Phasma.
