    The cast of Episode VII is not complete. What actors could we see added to the cast? Will Lupita Nyong'o come aboard as Asajj Ventress? Will Maisie Richardson-Sellers be appearing as a descendant of Obi Wan Kenobi? Will Zac Efron be a Solo/Skywalker child? Will an older actress appear as Luke's wife or love interest?

    At this point I think the roles are supporting and minor roles. I think we have our main cast. THR seems to be the only one going with that thier another major role to fill.

    Yesterday I read somewhere, they were saying that that Lupita, Maisie and Efron are all still rumored to get roles

    THR I think was leaked that by the production intentionally though. But that's the million dollar question for me, if the Obi Wan descendant role is the one remaining to be filled or has this been changed to a male played by Boyega.

    Changed title from "who they are" to "who they might be" for the sake of semantics.

    I wouldn't be surprised to hear of another female lead being announced since there were those two late teen girls on the casting call, and one was noticeably absent in the big cast reveal this week.

    Ha...I find it funny that you included Efron on the list of people since that article is basically about a female role. Funny.

    Anywho, I'm guessing they will pull a "Daisy Ripley" aka be somebody we never even knew existed.

    With as many people as they have already announced just going by the previous movies it's hard to imagine how much screen time all these people could potentially get. It's hard to think that even among the announced cast some of these might only be in the film for a short while. It's going to look kind of weird to be dragging 8 or 10 people around everywhere they go in this movie.
    Just throwing Efron in the mix cause there are still rumors out there he could be invovled: http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/654...-efron-among-unannounced-cast-in-episode-vii/

    I hope Elfron not in it. Not that I think he's a bad actor or person. I just can't stand his groupies. [face_laugh]

    I wouldn't be surprise if Maisie was already cast but in a very minor role that many misinterpreted as a significant one.

    It's possible as THR kept insisting that the Obi Wan's relative role was for a non white actress and if they changed the gender it might still be the same requirements.

    Yeah, most likely the truth. I do think there is another significant female role. But, it may be only a minor role in episode 7.

    There's a rumor that the open-to-all-ethnicities young female role they've been auditioning for is Boyega's love interest who will be a minor character in VII and a bigger character in VIII and IX. That would explain why they didn't wait for her before announcing the main cast but are still telling THR that her role is important.

    This. Most likely that supporting villain character.

    I'm at a point that I hope Lupita comes nowhere near this production. There seems to be a sense of entitlement amongst her supporters that she has a birth right to be in SW 7. People were upset that she wasn't announced as a cast member in the first reveal because they accepted the RUMOR of her being cast for the film as fact. Do they not realize there were also similar rumors for Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, Saoirse Ronan, etc., were also rumored to have had private discussions and/or auditions for JJ? There are people overcome with glee on twitter and websites because they are once more buying into rumors that their deity has been chosen for a role (an EU character of all things). Frankly I would love for them to walk away disappointed again.

    That would be awesome: A villain going good. We haven't had that in the movies before.

    I actually think Daisy is more likely Boyega love interest. No matter which one of them is the main hero.

    I like how she's now internationally known by her first name - Lupita

    Probably because her surname is a bit of a tongue twister, but still, it's a sign you've made the big time

    Or its a tragic love story that is doomed to fail based on the naivety of youth. Either or.

    I'm hoping for Lupita. Though not for the role of Ventress, but a new character.

    I wouldn't mind Zac, but I'm not sure if he'll get a part.

    So the black kid gets a black love interest. Well wouldn't that draw some attention indeed. I think Boyega has it for the Solo girl. And as far as the cast goes, that picture guys. That's the cast. That's more main characters than there are in RoTJ. You have all you need right there. Any role to be filled is 3 lines max.
