Two relatively unknown actors have caught their big break by being cast in the new Star Wars movie. Pip Anderson and Crystal Clarke beat out 67,000 actors who auditioned for the roles. Congrats! I’m sure that’s quite exciting.
“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,” said Lucasfilm president and producer of the film, Kathleen Kennedy.
There’s no information on what roles they will be playing, but I think we can expect some acrobatic action from Pip Anderson. He’s a parkour enthusiast, with quite the impressive moves. You can watch him below in a 2012 commercial for The Amazing Spider-Man.
