Rumour: Gina Rodriguez Cast In Episode VIII?

    Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), was previously rumoured to be in contention for a part in Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII.

    Those rumours may now step up after eagled eyed twitter user Tony spotted that both Rian Johnson and John Boyega are now following her on twitter.

    It’s pure speculation at this point, and they could just be fans of a fantastic actress, but it adds more spice to the soup!!!
