Newcomer Richardson-Sellers up for Star Wars?


In a couple of weeks – guessing around May 4, widely considered “Star Wars Day” – we’ll probably have some official casting announcements (they’ve been a long time coming, right!?) but for the moment, another “Star Wars : Episode VII” casting rumor.

According to Deadline, Lucasfilm are eyeing newcomer Maisie Richardson-Sellers for a role in the J.J Abrams directed blockbuster.

The Oxford-trained actress is best known for her stage work. Obviously she’ll be doing far less of that if she gets the nod for “Star Wars” – being that it’ll probably send her career into the stratosphere and book her out for the next few years.

No word on which role Richardson-Sellers is being eyed for.
