    Just announced that she has a role in the film. Can't really say much about her because I've never seen anything she's done. Perhaps she's the fourth member of the group of heroes like Lando was.

    Am assuming she's the actress cast in the role they were chemistry-testing people with John Boyega for...? I do like they've been going for unknowns.

    Nah I'm joking. Good for her. Get ready to be shipped with Rey and every character in this movie.

    This has just reminded me of the epic 'why the Skywalkers are basically the Bluths' conversation I had a friend.

    Vader is Lucille, obviously.

    I think agencies justsay 'lead' if the person is more than a walk on to big up their artist. 'Principle' would probably be a better term.

    To me 'lead' means THE lead pretty much and I doubt she's that. Hence the Oscar for 'Best Actor/Actress in a LEADing Role' only ever goes to the top billed actor in a movie

    Oh, she was in UCB - bet her comedy chops and her timing are impeccable!

    Given the strength of the casting for TFA, i'm feeling quite chilled on this one. They've got it right so far.

    Well.

    I hope the role she plays fits.

    ATM I can't imagine what that is.

    I think it's the most interesting new cast from the bunch.

    Dern and Del Toro are known quantity....with this casting...we are in uncharted territory.

    I trust Rian.

    I'm hoping she's cast against type, and not "Finn's goofy sidekick" (for example).

    There is a slight possibility that this new movie might not be what the doctor ordered.

    I can't believe we've already got people worried about this casting decision.

    What's wrong with you people?

    We've no idea what sort of character she's even playing.

    Give her a chance for heaven's sake!

    Not so much her casting decision as the overall influx of news.

    With the addition of Dern and Del Toro and all the returning cast members, this is a powerful ensemble, and with the success of previously casting Ridley and Boyega, I feel confident that Kelly Marie Tran will do well and become accepted going forward ... but getting from here to the premiere is going to be one exciting ride.

    Clearly some people just enjoy being rude. I look forward to what she brings to the saga.

    Wouldn't call it rude.

    More like ... wondering how or why these decisions have been made.
