Despite the Internet’s best efforts, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will undoubtedly have a handful of really great surprises to give fans when it comes out at the end of the year. And now it’s being tossed around that one of those surprises may have something to do with a female Stormtrooper trooping around the universe. Could the male-leaning franchise actually be bringing in a woman for its iconic cloned army?
The rumorish news places newcomer actress/musician Amybeth Hargreaves as the first female Stormtrooper, and it comes from her resume on Spotlight UK, which had a 2014 listing for her role as a “Storm Trooper” for Disney and J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars. That particular listing has since been removed, probably not long after fanboys first heard this highly intriguing factoid. Here’s a screenshot of the unaltered resume, thanks to JediNews.
