Let’s try and keep the excitement level down for this bit of news today, as it’s something that doesn’t seem to be out of the ordinary. While it is a confirmation of earlier rumors, it still doesn’t tell us much. Sky News spoke with Saoirse Ronan and the 19 year old actress did confirm that she had read for a part in Star Wars: Episode VII, but she says, “so has everyone“.
This is why I’m not getting my hopes up just yet, as she’s right; I’m sure everyone possible has auditioned for a part in the Star Wars movies. Seriously, this is what actors do for a living; they read for roles and hope they get the part. So the fact that she read for a role isn’t really news, especially considering they are no details for which role she read. When asked, she stated that the bosses would more than likely “chop off her head with a light-sabre“.
It’s been nothing but secrecy with the new Star Wars film so far (which has been frustrating for fans), but with filming set to begin in a few months, hopefully that will change. So which role do you think she read for?
