Actor Gwendoline Christie, who played Captain Phasma in the Star Wars franchise and Brienne of Tarth in the Game of Thrones franchise, has joined Tim Burton’s upcoming series reimagining of The Addams Family for Netflix.
The announcement came via a release from the streaming service, which also indicates that Christie will play Larissa Weems, “the principal of Nevermore Academy who still has an axe to grind with her former classmate Morticia Addams.” Christie is the latest to join an ever-growing ensemble, which also recently added 10 actors in August.
