Star Wars Episode VII Casting News by Michelle Lawhorn
With all the rumors floating around about casting for the next installment in the Star Wars saga, Bleeding Cool has confirmed the following to be 100% accurate and straight from Lucasfilm representatives:
Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.
Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.
A late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.
Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanour. Also doesn’ t need to be particularly fit.
A second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.
Forty something male, fit, military type.
Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.
“Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.” I’m sorry, but that made me giggle a little.
Keep in mind that these descriptions are so vague that they can be applied to anyone in the Star Wars story, EU or otherwise. Open casting began today (June 19) in the UK.
