Ever since the now famous picture came out of the table read from Star Wars: Episode VII there has been intense speculation about who each actor or actress will be playing.

Most of those involved, however, have kept quiet, keeping their public comments to brief, jokey tweets.

However, Irish actor Domnhall Gleeson, who played Bill Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, appeared on a Dublin radio station since the cast announcement - and he couldn't Star Wars related questions being put to him.

And the question that he was asked before all others was: who is he playing?

Unfortunately, the actor was professional enough to keep his mouth shut:

I’m still struggling to come to terms with [the casting]. It all happened really quickly for me. It was like the day before and then I’m at a table reading with Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. It was madness but it was great.
I’m afraid if I say anything I’ll give away the plot of the whole movie. I’ve got two years of this ahead of me. The movie is released in December 2015 — that’s the amount of time I have to keep my mouth shut!

Fans are pretty clever though, and all the talk has been about Gleeson playing a lead Jedi in the series (Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac are thought to be villains).

So what do you think? Write in below with who you think Domnhall Gleeson will be playing, could it even be Luke Skywalker's son?
