Hot on the heels of that rather audacious and impressive tsunami of BTS spy photos, The Powers That Be on EPISODE VII have issued an announcement regarding the addition of two female cast members to the film.
This reveal was portended by JJ & Co. after the predominantly male-centric casting announcement which rolled out a few weeks ago.
Lupita Nyong'o joins the recently announced cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. This year, her breakthrough performance in 12 Years a Slave earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Gwendoline Christie, currently starring in the hit television series Game of Thrones as Brienne of Tarth, has also been cast in the production. She can next be seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2.
Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, and Natalie Portman were good actors too before EPISODE I... (EDIT: but had difficulty reflecting as much in that film. A cautionary tale?)
