Ksenia Solo and Liam McIntyre Considered for Star Wars: Episode 7?

star wars cast
More unconfirmed casting rumors. This time it's the Latvian actress whose real name is Solo and Spartacus actor Liam McIntyre...



From jedinews:

Pretty solid source telling me that Ksenia Solo is being considered for a role, potentially Solo playing the daughter of Han Solo.
Notable previous appearances include Black Swan and Showcase's Lost Girl.

On tomorrow's RFR, we feature coverage from DragonCon. Our RFR correspondent, Riley Blanton from starwarsreport.com reports to us on this week's show that he had a conversation with Spartacus actor Liam McIntyre who revealed he read for a role in Episode VII. McIntyre hinted to Riley that he read directly from the script for a role of a Jedi.
 This girl really deserves the part. I wonder what's the back story on her name...

  3. I know TheForce.Net seems to think she might be joking because of her last name.

  5. So far I've liked most of the lessor known actor choices. The trend continues here. Wouldn't be upset at all with these two. Assuming they don't let us down with their acting chops of course.

  6. If you guys really want to know why you haven’t heard any official info as of yet, it’s because there isn’t any. I just got fired, so I’m going to spill the beans on what I know:
    There are still heavy discussions on how to do the new trilogy, and they are trying really hard to map out all three films at this point, and also account for contingencies such as the unexpected death or withdrawal from a cast member (let’s face it, the big three aren’t getting any younger or healthier).
    Here is what I know from the last I heard:
    The big three is fully intended to return, and this will be their goodbye trilogy where they leave in a blaze of glory.
    Leia is to be killed off in Episode VIII, which will cause a division between Luke and Han, which doesn’t amend itself fully.
    Lando’s character is still being discussed, because they really only want him for Episode IX, where they intend to have him and Han die in a suicide run on the Falcon, leaving Chewbacca behind. The problem is they can’t justify his involvement in Ep. VII & VIII.
    In Ep. VIII they want to introduce two EU characters, Dash Rendar and Kyle Katarn (who succeeds Luke after he dies in E IX), however Dash Rendar is still being discussed, and they are considering talking to Jason Court to reprise his role from the JK cut-scenes, but they also have other actors on the to be considered first list, even though he’s at the right age now and the one the fans of the games would identify the most with (partly the reason why I got fired is for bringing up all these things).
    The Vong will appear, but they will be more like minions (there is no longer an Empire or a remnant of it) of the new villain (who they haven’t decided on). Also, they will be fully susceptible to force detection and attacks (unlike the EU).
    The children of the big three will share equal amounts of screen time with them, and will gradually become more important as the trilogy progresses.
    Luke is a widower, his wife (who may or may not be called Mara Jade), died giving childbirth to their only son, this plotline is only to serve to show that he was able to succeed where his father failed.
    Palpatine appears to tempt Luke’s only son (and is successful for a while), Obi-Wan appears to counter act that.
    They want Judi Dench to play Mon Mothma, but haven’t talked to her agents as of yet.

    1. I would like to know if there is anyway I could get some kind of interview from you friend. I have a Star Wars 7 news channel on YouTube and I am a big fan of Star Wars and would love to get any information that I can. If you are interested at all in talking, please contact me at letstalkstarwars7@gmail.com. Thank you for your time.

    2. Ha! That shut him up.

      But honestly, how hard is it for Disney, the multi-billion dollar corporation with dollars coming out their nostrils, to just CONFIRM OR DENY some of these rumors?

  7. Any time I see someone posting as "anon" saying he just got fired and so he is going to let everything out, I put up serious red flag. I don't think Disney/Lucas Films would allow this and there would have to be some type of non-disclosure clause in the termination papers. Most likely with some monetary loss if the anon did this type of thing. So thank you friend for the interesting read but I have a feeling things have progressed much further than anyone outside the studio actually knows.

    1. I know, I just would think it would be neat to at least get a statement, I imagine that it probably isn't real but I'd at least think it would be neat to see how they defend themselves.
