Two actresses added to Sequel cast


After previous rumors about Kenyan/Mexican actress Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) being cast in Episode VII, it has finally been made official along with English actress Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones).

Here is the official announcement.

And here’s an article on EW.

Not clear yet whether either or both of these actresses are filling in that major female role(s) I’ve been hearing about, but many of us would love to see the Sequels continue what the Classic Trilogy started with regards to strong female characters (a topic for another post).
