Valene Kane Confirms She's Playing Lyra Erso in 'Rogue One'

By: Dominic Jones

Another actor has confirmed their involvement in the upcoming film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  Valene Kane, who's best known for her role in the BBC series The Fall, spoke with Belfast Live and told them she is playing Lyra Erso in the film.  Lyra is Jyn's mother, who fan's will first meet in the upcoming Rogue One prequel novel Star Wars: Catalyst by James Luceno.  Kane told Belfast Live, "I grew up watching Stars Wars and I didn’t believe it was happening until I was filming in Iceland. It has a really edgy independent vibe."

Rogue One will be the first Star Wars movie to feature flashbacks, which is likely where Kane will appear in the film (given that Valene Kane is younger than Felicity Jones).  Also, the fact that Mads Mikkelsen, who plays Galen Erso (Jyn's father and Lyra's husband), has said he has scenes with a young Jyn also points in that direction.
