This just dropped that two big actresses have joined the cast of STAR WARS EPISODE VII!

Both Gwendoline Christie (Game Of Thrones) and recent Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years A Slave) have joined the already fantastic cast of the upcoming seventh installment in the Star Wars franchise! The roles as yet are still unknown.

I started watching Game Of Thrones but it just lot me during the first season so I haven't been subject to Gwendoline Christie's talent but from what I hear, she's very good on the show. We didn't hear her name pop up in rumors so this is another one of the unexpected cast members to be announced.

When we were still hearing rumors about all these actors and actresses being in talks for Star Wars, the one that always stood out for me was Lupita Nyong'o, she blew me away with her incredible performance in 12 Years A Slave where she just steals every scene she's in. I always wanted the rumor about her joining the cast to be true. I am elated to hear of this casting and I can't wait to see what character she plays in the film, I would love for her to play a villain because of her intensity, her performance in 12 Years A Slave was so intense and subtle at the same time and I just think she'd be a fantastic villain and a female villain is something that the Star Wars movies haven't really had.

A lot of people were complaining when the main cast was announced that there weren't enough female cast members so hopefully this should please those people, because not only have we got two new female cast members but they are both great actresses.

I'm really happy with this casting but what about you guys, do you guys like Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie joining the cast of [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158)?
