With only a month or so to go before production kicks off on Star Wars: Episode VII, a new name surfaces with Maisie Richardson-Sellers.
Deadline has word that producers on Star Wars: Episode VII are looking at Maisie Richardson-Sellers, an unknown English actress known for stage plays.
A previous report mentioned that Abrams was going to go with unknown actors for various roles, so at least part of it fits.
Disney has yet to announce or confirm any actors associated with the movie, though it seems a sure bet that Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher are returning. There has also been recent mention that Peter Mayhew will reprise as Chewbacca.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" has a December 18, 2015 release.
