    Let me tell you the sentence that you will read the most on this thread: "Her role might be small on Episode VII but might get bigger on VIII and IX".

    Well she's on GoT next season so at least we'll see her naked before EpVII.

    Wait, did I just say that out loud?

    Strange after done filming casting someone. Also another female actress, hmmm, don't get me wrong, but going from an almost only male OT to a now ST with so many female actress is maybe a little bit too much. [face_dunno] Don't kill me for this critic, I'm female too. ;)

    Pre-emptive warning to keep it "non-creepy." If this thread goes full Daisy, bannings and a lock will be plentiful.

    I doubt she was cast recently. She's probably been a part of the film for a while but if she only has a small role they probably didn't feel the need to announce her.

    Sometimes this place gets like how I imagine a Star Trek The Next Generation forum must be. :p

    Great! Always wonderful to have another woman in Star Wars!

    So this is yet another person trained in martial arts in this movie. I have to admit I would love to have a couple of amazingly badass, lightsaber-wielding ladies in the movie!

    I'm starting to believe that there is a group of young Force sensitive characters who managed to escape the clutches of whoever is hunting down those strong with the Force and eventually lead to the establishment of a Jedi academy for Episodes 8 and 9.

    Default leader of this group: Domhnall Gleeson.

    Daisy and John stumble upon them on their search for Luke.

    Good point to remind everyone Star Trek fans speculated quite a bit about this guy:

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1395532/

    He even gave an interview about his role. I think he had three shots and two lines onscreen in STID. We are now in the Dark Knight Rises phase of hype: any and all casting is major news, even if it isn't.

    Well he was the core character.

    It will be nice to see TFA put the focus back on Kitster after that strange tangent Star Wars took with TCW.

    She could just be doing some voice acting for someone. Since a lot of that work is done in the course of a few days and can be done after they're done filming.

    I think it is safe to assume that the majority of the roles outside the main cast - Hamill to Christie to Clarke - are Hannitys and Galaga guys, or possible the career ending types who dont know the difference between Vulcan and Romulan (doofus, why didn't he lie and try bluff his way out) ;)

    It would be cool to have a female Mandalorian / Fett descendant, but she looks way too nice to be a ruthless warrior, I'd say.
