Los Angeles, July 9 (UITV/IANS)- "Game of Thrones" star Gwendoline Christie says it is "special" to be a part of the new "Star Wars" movie, and every day on set is exciting.

The 38-year-old actress is still amazed she was cast as Captain Phasma in "Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens" - a role she will reprise in the next instalment "The Last Jedi" - and admits every day on set is still very "exciting", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"It's so special. Everyone there... I can't express to you... Everyone there is so enthusiastic and delighted," she said.

"I loved 'Star Wars' from when I was really little. I didn't think I'd be in a 'Star Wars' film.

"Whoever things they're going to be in a 'Star Wars' film? Every day is really exciting," she added.

Christie says her enthusiasm is shared by all of the cast and crew.

She added to Total Film magazine: "There's a childlike enthusiasm as well, everyone from the director down says, 'Woah, we're doing 'Star Wars'.' "
