We can add four new names to the cast of Rogue One.

Daisy Ridley Fan via Making Star Wars revealed yesterday that Gabrielle Fritz would be taking the role of “Lyra Erso’s” Picture Double.  It begs the question who is Lyra Erso?

We can add further to that news by revealing that:

Bern Collaco who played a role of a “Evil Castle General” in The Force Awakens has landed another extra role in a Star Wars film this time as a Stormtrooper / Landing Crew in Rogue One.

Whilst perhaps most intriguingly Nabilah Karim will be playing the role of a “samurai.”

Rogue One continues production under the business name of Lunak Heavy Industries, and working title of Los Alamos for a December 16th release. 

Filming wrapped on location in the Maldives in early December, with shooting at Pinewood rumoured to have been completed.  We await official confirmation.
