    I wonder if she is going to be a droid or alien.

    Instead of yet another droid Character, like K-2SO; I am still guessing that they will go with a mo-cap alien character. I was thinking an alien sidekick for Woody Harellson's character. But now I am leaning more towards an alien partner/co-pilot for Emilia Clarke's character; who I believe will be a rival smuggler of Han Solo. ;)

    I guess wacky alien co-pilots is a Han, Lando thing. It would be tempting to invent a new one.

    I hope so. Would be great if Han has a different alien co-pilot initially, who's essentially the opposite of Chewie. Untrustworthy and cowardly.

    Apart from "it's fun" she doesn't say much. That's okay.
    Whatever role she has, it will be extremely British.

    Actually, reports suggest that it will only be very British.

    If Bob Iger said it, it's confirmed. Quite British it is. Though in another interview with EW, he used the phrase "rather British," so there's still some uncertainty.

    So less British than the elephants in the jungle book, but more British than a mini cooper?

    So British that she may as well have been interviewed in a red telephone box.

    There appears to be a red 'protocol' droid onboard the Falcon. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is very close to Anthony Daniel's height. Am I clutching at straws?

    Maybe just a few straws. It could happen.

    It's the 'CG' mentions that has me wondering whether she might be playing a alien though. Saying that there was Threepio's red arm....

    K2-SO was also CG. I guess she is mo-capping a droid like Alan Tudyk mo-capped K-2SO.

    LOL, I remember pointing out Tudyk wearing his mo-cap gear in the BTS of the beach battle. I wonder where my brain cells are running off to sometimes....

    A tad British would be jolly fine, don't you know? My money is on this fine actress playing a character of the metal persuasion - one of those mechanical people. Good show!

    The red droid is the Kessel Operations Droid and DD-BD looks a bit utilitarian. Could she be playing Quay Tolsite?
