Earlier this week, actress Saoirse Ronan confirmed that she has auditioned for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII and the actress has now opened up a little bit on the process in an interview with Empire.
Yeah, I did [audition for Star Wars Episode VII] I dont know whether I should have said that now! I mean, everyone did. Everyone has auditioned for it. So many people I know have gone in for the part Ive gone in for, and guys whove gone in for a particular part, so Id imagine J.J. is probably just scanning the earth to find the people that ne needs.
Ronan also confirmed what we assumed, that no one knows anything about the movie.
But nobody has a clue what its about, and nobodys read the script. So Ive gone in and read for it, but I have to say, I think its the only time Ive ever thought, You know what? Even if I dont get it, I had so much fun auditioning, pretending to take out a lightsaber out of a bag, kind of inspect it and not know what it is. That was that was great. A lightsaber! Star Wars!
Set to feature a script by Michael Arndt, Star Wars: Episode VII is rumored to focus on a new generation of heroes and could feature appearances by Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in older incarnations of their beloved characters from the original Star Wars trilogy.
