    If she's a Fett, which would be cool to be honest, hopefully they do her better than they did her pops in RotJ, because... LOL Boba Fett.

    Better to go Full Retard then go Full Daisy. :)

    I hope she is a Fett, but I wonder how much screen time she'll have if we're just hearing about her now after principle photography has wrapped.

    She's probably playing Green Five.

    She was casted a while ago. I'm sure there are a lot of people who weren't announced, otherwise Episode VII is going to have the smallest cast of any Star Wars movie.

    I like the idea that Gleeson, Andersen, Clarke, Chong, and now this girl are possibly a hiding group of young Jedi, waiting for Luke to emerge and lead them.

    Seems to be an awful lot of attractive, young females in the cast. All playing disparate characters or possibly sith witches?

    It's really no more or less than each of the prequel trilogy films had between Queens, Jedi, Senators, handmaidens, aides, bounty hunters, Twi'leks and family members.

    Jessica Henwick, Christina Chong, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, and Billie Lourd are just going to end up in the Queen Breha Organa, Sei Taria, Barriss Offee, Aurra Sing, Motee, Aayla Secura, and Sola Naberrie type of roles.

    Is there even confirmation that Maisie or Billie are even in this?

    After her name surfaced on the Force Awakens IMDB page again there was a twitter report that she was playing an emissary, some type of messenger. But who knows?

    The more "Game of Thrones" talent, the better. I think we will get even more for the next installments considering both franchises have the same casting director. Personally I would love Pedro Pascal to be in a SW movie, he was awesome in S4.

    Oddly I'm not so eager for the next season. Perhaps it is because the show is catching up to all the books that at this point it looks as if it will conclude its story before the books conclude theirs. I hope Martin quickens his pace.

    The one thing I'm loving about this upcoming SW trilogy is that it is not bound to any book or comics storylines. It has freedom create its own myth rather than be burdened by an established one.

    I'm betting she's playing Plagueis.

    Yes, and the Sequels aren't even bound by what came before - they simply have to honour the previous six but the GFFA is totally free now because nothing had to fit into a previously told story.

    Okay just one observation and one odd idea:

    Observation: My GOD she's beautiful. I think I'm in love. Seriously.

    Odd idea: I would hazard a guess that her character and Christina Chong's are related. Maybe older and younger sister. Imagine Chong being a ruthless space pirate who captures and tortures the new leads, only to turn out that she is only in it for the money and she wants to look after her little sister.

    Of course he isn't. Now let's not leave this thread burried. Things need to be fast in the post-teaser forum. There has been an awakening.

    I agree with you. The films need a realistic representation of both.
