Oscar Isaac has mastered the art of answering questions about his role of Poe Dameron in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens without ever actually giving anything away. Recently, however, he made a very interesting remark about what the process of working on The Force Awakens is actually like. When asked if he knew what the plot of The Force Awakens was by Time Out Dubai, Isaac said,
"No. I’m just as in the dark as everyone else as to how it will all come together. But I do know it will come together beautifully. [Director] J.J. Abrams has so much passion and love for the story. I can’t wait to see more of it. That trailer was incredible. Just like the rest of the world I was floored by it. "
In the dark? That, to me, seems like an odd comment for him to make. We saw him in the famous cast photo of the script read through and the latest rumors suggest that he is one of the main stars of the new film. So how can he be in the dark about it? There's always the possibility that the rumors we've been hearing and reporting for months now are wrong and Isaac only has a small role. Or perhaps Isaac knows the general thrust of the film, but is in the dark about some of the bigger surprises in store (two recent rumors jump to mind). Regardless, I found this to be an odd comment, or at least choice of words, from Isaac. Still odd statements from the cast are still better than silence!
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18th, 2015.
