SPOILER: Scottish Supermodel Eunice Olumide Lands Role In Rogue One



    Talking at the Zero Waste Scotland campaign, Scottish supermodel Eunice Olumide, 28, revealed that she has a role in the upcoming Rogue One.

    Beware of potential spoilers ahead:
    The model, who has worked with Vivienne Westwood and walked for Mulberry and Henry Holland, said she was very excited about her upcoming film roles.

    In Star Wars Rogue One, part of a standalone series of films, Eunice plays a rebel leader.

    She said: “I did a small feature in Star Wars Rogue One. That was a really awesome experience. I don’t have lines but it was an incredible experience to be part of such an iconic film.

    “I was originally supposed to play a nomad, but since I’m athletic I ended up playing a rebellion leader.

    “There’s a small scene where I run and there’s a tank that comes after me with 20 stormtroopers. There’s loads of explosions.

    “I kept getting a fright whenever the explosions went off.”

    She said: “If my scene gets cut or not cut I was entered into the George Lucas Archives. I got into a 3D scanner and they did a scan.

    “They scan all the characters so they can reproduce individual toys or computer games.

    “I will be a toy. It was an amazing experience.”
    Eunice Olumide can also be seen in the upcoming Absolutely Fabulous film.
