New ‘Star Wars’ Cast Members Revealed

Episode VII will be taking a two week break in August to accommodate Harrison Ford’s snapped ankle. Meanwhile… imagine meeting Ford for the first time and having to sign his cast? It’s an awkward situation two new stars could find themselves in when they start shooting at Pinewood Studios.

The names Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen probably don’t mean much in Movieland now, but their profiles are set to skyrocket faster than R2D2 with a firework up his Usb port. Details are as ever tantalisingly sketchy, but they have been speculatively linked to the following characters…

Rachel, a “street smart, independent, athletic, natural beauty“, who has been ascribed to Clarke… And Thomas, a young man who has “grown up without a father’s influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn’t have the strongest sense of himself.” Qualities Andersen may have shown in spades at the audition.
