Gugu Mbatha-Raw Rumoured For Star Wars Role

You may be focussing all your attention on ‘The Force Awakens’ right now, and we can’t blame you. With all the hype surrounding J.J Abrams’ addition to the franchise, it’s quite possible you will have missed the news that ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ has reportedly landed on a leading lady. 

After previous frontrunners for the role, Tatiana Maslany and Olivia Cooke signed onto other projects which would clash with filming for Rian Johnson’s ‘Star Wars’ effort, it has emerged that Gugu Mbatha-Raw has all but signed on the dotted line. After appearing in sci-fi flop ‘Jupiter Ascending’, we’re sure Mbatha-Raw would relish the chance to star opposite Benicio del Toro in this iconic series.
