Gwendoline Christie of The Sandmans reacts to the show's major Lucifer change ...

Gwendoline Christie, who plays Sandman on the show, has spoken out about the significant Lucifer change in the program.

Christie's Lucifer gets to take part in Dream's Imagination battle on Netflix. Digital Spy chatted with the Game of Thrones star at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about it.

"Very, very, very exciting," she said of the script change, "and may I just say they've done a phenomenal job with it."

She talked about getting to play Dream with Tom Sturridge, who plays Dream on the show.

"They've done a fantastic job of bringing this to life, and I loved playing the relationship with Tom, and I really enjoyed the relationship between the two of them."

"There was also a lighting stake that Jamie Charles, the director, used, which I thought seemed to put us into a hallucinogenic state, which was really cool," she said.

Christie claims she avoided seeing the program because she didn't want to imitate Tom Ellis' version of the character.

"I have great respect for Tom, but I didn't think it would be helpful for me to observe someone else's performance in a Lucifer role," she told Digital Spy.

"I played Lucifer on stage at the Manchester Royal Exchange, possibly in 2009 or 2010, but I can't quite remember."

"I was actually propelled out of the ceiling in chainmail coloured grey with my hands on fire, so it was a role I wanted to revisit."

"I'm very lucky to have had an amazing training at Drama Centre London, which was classical training with a method approach. We were always instructed to look at a wide range of materials. It's the strangest thing that comes to you and says that is Lucifer, that essence, that look, that scorching sensation," she said.

The Sandman is now available on Netflix.
