Star Wars fans may have left The Force Awakens unsure of whether they’d get to see Captain Phasma in future sequels of the franchise, but actress Gwendoline Christie has put the speculation to rest.

“I will be in the next Star Wars movie,” she told People at the SAG Awards this weekend. “I think that’s an exclusive, actually.”

Captain Phasma was last seen (spoiler alert!) apparently about to disappear down a garbage chute, so viewers weren’t sure whether she’d survive for the next installment. Now that anxious fans have their answer, they can kick back and enjoy Christie’s equally tense plot line in Game of Thrones, returning to HBO on April 24.
