Much was revealed in the recently released trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but something we did not get a look at is the character played by Riz Ahmed. We got a glimpse of him in the first cast photo, but nothing further is know about his role. Today, Entertainment Weekly caught up with Ahmed who spoke briefly about the production value of Rogue One. You can read some of his comments below:
“The level of attention to detail and care that goes into building that world is just unbelievable. All the set designers, the costume designers, the world they create is so detailed you would not believe it. You pick up any random prop and it’s got a touch screen with buttons and alien writing on it and you’re just like, ‘Wow, I‘ve got to up my game.’ I stole so many props… just check [on] ebay."
He also went on to talk about growing up with Star Wars and that being a part of the universe is "a privilege.” You can watch the interview below:
