One of the new characters we'll be meeting in Star Wars Episode IX, is a character played by Keri Russell (The Americans, Felicity).  Russell's character remains shrouded in secret, however the actress appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night and host Stephen Colbert did his best to get some details about the film from Russel.  She didn't say much, however she say, "I do have the coolest costume."  You can see the full interview below,
