When the initial casting announcement came out for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, there was an initial backlash because it was pretty much all dudes. Aside from returning star Carrie Fisher, the only other woman was newcomer Daisy Ridley. Since that announcement at the end of April, however, Disney and Lucasfilm have increased the female contingent, and today they’ve added another in the person of the relatively unknown Christina Chong.
Latino-Review reports that the young actress has joined the shoot, which is already underway at Pinewood Studios in London, England. Though she has appeared in movies like Johnny English Reborn and shows like Doctor Who, but has most recently been seen in Jack Bauer’s latest adventures in 24: Live Another Day.
