Lucasfilm has always been know for it's secrecy about upcoming projects, but now it seems that at least one current Star Wars star is taking that secrecy very seriously. Domhnall Gleeson, who's set to appear alongside Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver, among others, in Star Wars Episode VII, has reportedly been extremely tight lipped about his new job, even keeping details about the film from his family. Herald.ie spoke with Domhnall's brother Brian, who is also an actor, about his brother's new gig:
"The Irish star of the latest instalment in the Star Wars trilogy comes from one of Ireland’s best known acting dynasties, but Domhnall Gleeson has had to keep the script for the highly-anticipated flick under lock and key, even from his legendary actor dad Brendan.
While they are delighted for Domhnall, brother Brian, who is a huge Star Wars fan, said his sibling is being very careful to ensure he keeps the film secrets under wraps.
“He can’t say anything so he doesn’t give me any information,” Brian told the[Herald]"
Domhnall's willingness to keep info about Episode VII a secret, even from those closest to him, is commendable. While we as fans often find ourselves clamoring for the tiniest details about Episode VII, we need to remember that a certain amount of surprise should be withheld until we actually see the film. More and more will be revealed in time, but hopefully certain crucial things in Episode VII will stay a secret until December 18th, 2015.
So, I have a question; If you were involved with a super awesome Star Wars project and you were sworn to secrecy, could you keep it a secret? Even from your family? Please share your answer in the comments below, or on Facebook and Twitter!
