Star Wars Adds Two, Planning Hiatus

Two new cast members have been added to Star Wars Episode VII as the production plans on a two hiatus in August. The two cast members are Pip Anderson and Crystal Clarke. Both are literal unknowns as Clarke's first roles are still in post-production while Anderson is known in parkour circles so expect he will be used for ability to perform stunt work while acting. Per usual Abrams' cone of silence rules, no information was released about what characters they would playing but I suspect both will be minor supporting roles. As for the filming break, the cause is related to Harrison Ford's broken leg (or sprained ankle, reports vary) that was caused by a door on the Millennium Falcon set.

"The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent and in casting Episode VII we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition. We are delighted that so many travelled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to make Crystal and Pip a part of the film," said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy in the Sunday casting statement.
