In case you needed another reason to idolize Gwendoline Christie, the actress behind Captain Phasma recently delivered a Chewbacca impression for the ages. 

Collider caught up with Christie during the press junket for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Because she was under oath to keep mum about movie secrets — we already know what an “Oath-Keeper” she is — the site decided to have some fun.

Steve Weintraub asked Christie if she could perform impressions of Chewie, Jabba the Hutt, and Episode VII director J.J. Abrams. He only got Chewie, but that was more than satisfying. Watch Christie’s impression in the video below at the 3:39 mark.
