‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ Adds Newcomer Christina Chong

Looks like ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ isn’t done casting just yet — even though filming is well under way in London with director J.J. Abrams, the production has just added yet another (female!) cast member: newcomer Christina Chong, most recently seen on ‘24: Live Another Day.’

Variety reports that British newcomer Chong has been added to the cast of ‘Star Wars: Episode 7,’ though it’s unclear what her role in the new film will be. The actress recently appeared in the Fox miniseries ’24: Live Another Day,’ and her credits also include roles in the films ‘Johnny English Reborn’ and Madonna’s ‘W.E.’ She’s also appeared in British shows like ‘Whitechapel’ and ‘Doctor Who.’ You can watch her parkour reel above.

Chong joins a cast that includes veterans Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Peter Mayhew, as well as newcomers to the franchise like Adam Driver, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, and Max von Sydow.

Her casting comes on the heels of two other recent additions: fellow relative unknown actors Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen — their roles are also unknown at this time (like Andersen, she’s skilled in the art of freerunning). Production recently announced that it would take a short break before resuming in August, due in part to Harrison Ford’s leg injury. ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ is slated to hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
