Today more news about the upcoming Episode VII casting.
It has been announced that Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie have joined the cast.
Lupita’s possibility to join the film had been going around the internet for a while, so it is very exciting to finally put those rumour like whispers to rest.
Gwendoline Christie is definitely a pleasant surprise though. I don’t know if their decision had anything to do with her performance in Game of Thrones (most likely), but regardless, I do hope to see her holding (and using) a lightsaber!
These are two ladies with not only a great talent for acting, but also a powerful presence that hopefully will be put to good use! The cast of the film is generally in these same lines, so I’m very excited to see the result of all of these great people working together.
On another note, someone part of the crew has leaked a few behind the scenes pictures of Star Wars: Episode VII. I am overall very pleased with what I saw. I dislike that the person leaked the pictures though, and for that, I will not be posting them here. I guess I’m still sort of supporting the behaviour by letting you guys know, but at least there will be less people looking them up than there would be people seeing the pictures had I uploaded them.. c:
