It seems the cast for this movie is growing by the day. Today, a young Asian actress by the name of Christina Chong has been announced to have secured a role in the new Star Wars trilogy for yet another mysteriously unannounced character. It is unclear whether she will be playing a human character or will be suiting up for a character of an alien race via CGI or make-up.
Latino Review, the site that broke the news, had this to say:
Up and coming actress Christina Chong, who was last seen on 24: Live Another Day and recently bagged the female lead in Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's digital feature project Halo: Nightfall, just joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII according to my sources.
Star Wars Episode 7 will hit theaters next winter on December 18th, 2015.
