Providing some more fuel to our initial rumor report concerning the Healer Twins being cast for currently undisclosed roles in Episode VII, the website Albawaba has posted a brief interview with sisters Thea and Lika Shengelaia about their experience on set shooting in Abu Dhabi.
What can you tell us about your time on set?
We went to the Abu Dhabi desert two weeks ago, and Lika and I were given the same special costumes and make-up to wear. Apparently they had spent four months preparing the sets. It was quite exciting. We were outdoors in the middle of the desert, and there were two main actors there for shooting – John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. But we didn’t have lines, just reaction shots. I can’t talk about the nature of the scene though!
We continue to wait for official word from Bad Robot/Lucasfilm/Disney on their confirmed Episode VII casting. Until then…
