Leanne BestThough filming for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in the books, that doesn’t mean we’re not going to get glimpses and peeks behind the curtain now and again. We know the main core of the cast, but in a movie of this size, there are bound to be tons of other roles, filled by tons of other actors, and as we creep ever closer to the December 18 release date, some of these have started to step out of the shadows and into the daylight. For example, we learned recently that three actors from Gareth Evans’ The Raid movies have some as yet undefined role, and now we learned that another British actress has a part in the film.

Yahoo UK came across an email, sent from British television outlet ITV, hyping their show Home Fires. It mentions cast member Leanne Best, and how in 2015 she will be seen in “J.J. Abrams highly anticipated Star Wars VII.” Best recently appeared in The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death, where she plays the title character, and can also be seen in the drama Ripper Street.
