The first Star Wars: Anthology movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is just 10 months away and we still know very little about it--outside of the main cast and a brief synopsis. Today, we learned about a new actress who has a role in the film. Scottish supermodel Eunice Olumide, who has also appeared in spoke at an event for the charity Zero Waste Scotland, where she revealed she would be in the film and spoke about her experience on the set.
She said: “I did a small feature in Star Wars Rogue One. That was a really awesome experience. I don’t have lines but it was an incredible experience to be part of such an iconic film.
“I was originally supposed to play a nomad, but since I’m athletic I ended up playing a rebellion leader.
“There’s a small scene where I run and there’s a tank that comes after me with 20 stormtroopers. There’s loads of explosions.
“I kept getting a fright whenever the explosions went off.”
She said: “If my scene gets cut or not cut I was entered into the George Lucas Archives. I got into a 3D scanner and they did a scan.
“They scan all the characters so they can reproduce individual toys or computer games.
“I will be a toy. It was an amazing experience.”
Olumide joins Felicity Jones, Donnie Yen, and Forest Whitaker in the Gareth Edwards directed film. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will tell the story of a group of Rebels who steal the plans to the first Death Star. The film hits theatres on December 16th.
