J.J. Abrams’ next installment in the Star Wars franchise has kicked into high gear! They’ve begun filming and we’ve already gotten a fresh look at multiple set photos. With this, there’s also now some more news regarding a new female character. Who you might ask? We’re not sure but we do have a description for you, courtesy of ThatHashtagShow.
A new description was released regarding a new supporting role. The studio wants a female between the ages of 27 and 35 for the role. Alongside those requirements, they would also want someone that’s “a younger Charlize Theron with street smarts and a sharp wit.” As far as ethnicity goes, they have no preference but they do want someone with “a good sense of humor, solid comedic timing and a strong voice.”
This all comes after two other character descriptions were released for characters known as ‘Mara’ and ‘Caro’. However, since that news broke, the character known as ‘Caro’ is being referred to as ‘Lucy’ and will now be playing a supporting role rather than a lead. There’s also a good chance that all these names are just to throw off fans and to keep the production as secretive as possible. You never know with a Star Wars film.
