With just a few days left until the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story it's hard to believe that we're still getting casting news about the film. We are very excited to report that just recently another actor confirmed their involvement with Rogue One.
Stephen Stanton, who is well know to Star Wars fans as the voice of Wilhuff Tarkin, Mas Amedda, Moralo Eval, Meebur Gascon and many others in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, has revealed that he has a role in Rogue One.
Now it has finally been announced that Stephen Stanton will be the voice of Admiral Raddus in the film. Raddus is a Mon Calamari officer in the Rebel Alliance who's look is said to be inspired by legendary British prime minister Winston Churchill. In reaction to the news, Stephen had this to say on Twitter:
