More Details on Saoirse Ronan's Episode VII Audition

By: Dominic Jones

It was not too long ago that Irish actress Saoirse Ronan confirmed that she had auditioned for a part in Episode VII.  Now more details have emerged regarding the audition itself.  Ronan appeared on the Empire podcast promoting her new film How I Live and she revealed the following.

"Yeah, I did [audition for Star Wars Episode VII]… I don’t know whether I should have said that now! I mean, everyone did. Everyone has auditioned for it. So many people I know have gone in for the part I’ve gone in for, and guys who’ve gone in for a particular part, so I’d imagine J.J. is probably just scanning the earth to find the people that he needs.
But nobody has a clue what it’s about, and nobody’s read the script. So I’ve gone in and read for it, but I have to say, I think it’s the only time I’ve ever thought, ‘You know what? Even if I don’t get it, I had so much fun auditioning, pretending to take out a lightsaber – out of a bag, kind of inspect it and not know what it is. That was… that was great. A lightsaber! Star Wars!"

So there you have it, pulling a lightsaber out of a bag and inspecting it.  While it's not much to go on, it certainly makes you think.  Why is there a lightsaber lying around and who is this person that has found it.  While this scene itself may not be in the film, it is likely based on something from the script.
