Alec Guinness’s Granddaughter Had A Cameo in The Rise of Skywalker

The Skywalker Saga documentary on the home release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker reveals that Sally Guinness, granddaughter of Alec Guinness, appears as a First Order officer in the film.

There’s a brief scene in The Rise of Skywalker where Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, under his reforged mask, addresses a small council of First Order officers. Among the party is a woman officer played by Sally Guinness–the granddaughter of legendary actor Alec Guinness, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars trilogy. She’s not the only legacy member of the cast: Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd plays Resistance hero Lieutenant Connix in all three sequel trilogy films (and also played Leia’s body double in The Rise of Skywalker’s flashback sequence–more on that in a bit), and Warwick Davis’s son Harrison plays an Ewok in the movie alongside his dad.
