Star Wars fans can add two more names to the growing cast-list for the highly anticipated film ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’. Lucasfilm and Disney confirmed that Pip Anderson and Crystal Clarke were the two actors chosen from the 67,000 actors who applied online for a role in the project.
The studio left this message concerning the two chosen actors earlier today on the franchise’s official blog:
“Crystal Clarke is an American actress studying in Glasgow, UK, who has both stage and screen acting experience and is soon to be seen in her first feature, The Moon and the Sun (to be released in 2015). British actor Pip Anderson is a skilled practitioner of parkour, a discipline that involves propelling oneself through any given environment with incredible grace and agility. Pip recently demonstrated this remarkable skill in a Spider-Man ad for Sony.”
“The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent and in casting Episode VII we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition. We are delighted that so many travelled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to make Crystal and Pip a part of the film,” said producer and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
The studio itself is just wrapping up the principal photography at Pinewood Studios in London, the first location that wrapped shooting was in Abu Dhabi back in May. The film is on-schedule for release on December 18, 2015.
