Two New Female Cast Members Rumored for Star Wars: Episode 7?

star wars

The following rumor is from yesterday but I didn't want to run it with the two officially revealed images. Now it looks like this rumor has been backed up by a second much more credible source. Hit the jump for the names of the 2 rumored actresses...


It was LatinoReview who first posted the rumor:
We think we know of the two additional female roles we were waiting for.
First up - Katie Jarvis - an actress from Essex, Mia from Fishtank. If you’ve seen Fishtank, you probably think this is a cool choice. She’s a capable actress but doesn’t have a specific type of role that’s been assigned to her persona.
Second - Maisie Richardson-Sellers - we can confirm reports that Maise Richardson-Sellers has been around the Star Wars production. It’s looking like rumors from last month that the Oxford-graduate will be taking a female role might turn out to be accurate.

The Sellers rumor is no surprise at all. I still believe it's her on the image below, reading the Episode 7 script.

Later TheTrackingBoard backed up their story:
Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Katie Jarvis join the illustrious cast of STAR WARS EPISODE VII. The bulk of the cast was announced a few weeks ago including classic “Star Wars” cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill along with new members like Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac.
This will be the feature debut of Richardson-Sellers who has appeared in the short films “Americano and Rum” and “Our First World.” Jarvis has appeared in the British series “10 Minute Tales” and the BBC Films drama “Fish Tank” with Michael Fassbender.

Keep in mind that Deadline also backed up the rumor about Sellers stating that her role is not the lead. Later they removed that part from their story.

  1. 3 Young women, all with dark hair and I think Daisy Ridley and Katie Jarvis look a lot a like. Maybe sisters?

    Sellers would be a greath mandalorian. like Isaac.

  2. First, more females is an amazingly great thing for Star Wars. There were some debates around the nets a year ago about this and it is good.

    Second, I don't care how many females they cast I just pray that no one in this cast is a decendant/grandson/grandaughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    4. Perhaps Obi-Wan's great great niece?

    5. How can Obi-Wan's decendant be of mixed race? I'm sorry but I think thats a big mistake if they do that!!! Just make a new character for her. Leave his Legacy alone!!!!

  3. This Jarvis girl looks like she could pass as Luke's daughter. Same hair color, facial structure. Maybe he has a daughter and not a son?

  4. I like them both! Hope Katie Jarvis is lead.

    1. If Katie Jarvis was a main lead I think she would have been in the first casting announcement. She is most likely a minor character if she is in the film.

      Delete
    2. Also, as great as Katie was in Fish Tank, she has a very, very, VERY thick Essex accent. I think she'd be great as a supporting character... something along the lines of Zam Wesell or Boba Fett(a mostly physical role with little dialogue), but as a lead, I just don't see it happening. Another thing... I and hate judging people for this, but in one of the only interviews she did for Fish Tank, she also had missing teeth. She has likely had that fixed by now, but given her lack of training as an actress, I don't see her being able to do a lot in the way of speaking in an easier to understand accent.

    2. It seems the more we explore the period between III and IV, the more Jedi we bump into! Hurts the importance of Luke's story in the OT, if you ask me.

      Delete
    3. Agreed. Episode 6 is called "return of the Jedi" for a reason. Introducing all these behind the scenes crap that supposedly happened during the OT which diminishes significance of Luke's character is ridiculous and I don't believe it for a second.

      Delete
    4. Return of the Jedi is not the return of the Jedi order it is the return of Anakin Skywalker.

      Delete
    5. um no. It's not referring to Anakin. It's referring to THE jedi, not A Jedi.. Like I said before. It's called "Return of The Jedi" for a reason. It's not a difficult concept. For JJ to meddle with what's already been established for no reason, would make him, in the words of Vader, clumsy as he is stupid.

      Delete
    6. Intentional or not, I think it's both. I see the OT's subtitles as applying to both individuals and the galaxy as a whole:

      IV - A New Hope: Luke couldn't get off Tatooine by wanting to be a star pilot for the Academy, but he now can by wanting to become a Jedi / the destruction of the Death Star is the turning point in the Rebellion's efforts to defeat the Empire

      V - The Empire Strikes Back: Vader captures our heroes on Bespin, tortures and freezes Han into carbonite, slices off Luke's hand and gut punches him with the father reveal / The Empire discovers the Rebels on Hoth and forces them to go on the run to a secret location, where they're MIA for the rest of the film

      VI - Return of the Jedi: Darth Vader is redeemed by his son, once again becoming Anakin Skywalker and returning to the Jedi ways of the Force / Luke and our heroes defeat the Empire, allowing for the eventual return of the Jedi Order to protect the galaxy once again

      I hope VII continues the trend of matching the story of our heroes and villains against what's going on in the galaxy as a whole.

      The subtitles' words combined also sum up the OT's saga well:

      A New Jedi Return Strikes Back the Hope of The Empire = 11 words

      A New Hope = 3
      The Empire Strikes Back = 4
      Return of the Jedi = 4

    1. In a way I hope that Han and Leia have 2 daughters and that luke don't have any offspring.

    2. Oh god no It's super important for Luke to have a son. We need to establish how he was different to Anakin. Anakin has Luke and Leia accidentally. His love was clingy obsession. The Jedi were not allowed to love. The OT showed possesion and love to friends is important. Unlike the prequels with all their flawed rules for the Jedi. Luke having a son would be the pretty perfect way to resolve it. Plus it would continue the narrative of the father/child of the previous Skywalker lead.

    1. Wtf? How are people idiots for simply pointing out the fact that there are a lack of females?..

    2. Even though there was only one female in the announced cast, they did say they were still looking for cast members.

      So there was still a change that some main (and some some sidekicks) were female. There is one thing in stating there was a lack in females.

      Others went completely mental and said all kind of nonsense about how star wars was racist because of the lack of female actors in the cast While it was clear that they still needed to do some casting for some of roles.

      I assume the idiots in the comment are the people who took the lack of women in the announced cast to far. They are still trying to cast some roles and I assume that there will be some females actors addes to the cast

      Delete
    3. I'm grateful for all the people who spoke out on the lack of female roles in the main cast. We all knew that more actors were going to be named (supporting roles, etc.), but the cast reveal last month was presented in such a way that said that this was it for the MAIN CAST, the ones who get the most screen time and drive the story. Absurd.

      I certainly didn't hear anything about JJ looking for more actresses for the main cast until AFTER people spoke out, not to suggest that the roles weren't already planned ahead of time. It would've been smart for them to release a statement along with last month's cast reveal, saying that they were still in the process of securing one or two more female roles.

      It's ridiculous how they could look at 6 of their 7 brand new roles being for men and think people weren't going to speak out. I'm glad many people across the Internet sent them a message. We're not going to continue to be silent about that. Star Wars isn't just for men anymore.

    4. "I certainly didn't hear anything about JJ looking for more actresses for the main cast until AFTER people spoke out"

      OMG how many times do we have to go over this? They were still casting!!! Do you know what "casting" means? Here's the definition:

      "the act or process of choosing actors to play the various roles in a theatrical production, motion picture, etc."

      If you are too lazy to look into SW's casting process then don't bother judging because the news was out a year ago that they were looking for *several* female leads.
      I mean it's fucking Star Wars... they aren't going to change the script and add 2 more female characters in the last *2 weeks* before *filming* just because of some internet trolls. You honestly think JJ is reading this shit and is like "OMG they're right! We gotta change this NOW!" No... because he already made his decision a year ago. Go back and read the news, a quick google search should clear that up for you.

    5. Thank you for speaking some sense Aras..

    6. No problem! I should also going to point this out: That pic of what is probably Maisie Richardson-Sellers was taken *before* the big casting announcement. That's *before* as in before internet trolls started complaining about sexism in a movie for which they know next to nothing about, written and directed by the guy who did Lost... a show which passes the bechdel test with flying colors.

    7. Stop making up rubbish
      "Even though there was only one female in the announced cast, they did say they were still looking for cast members."
      No. In the press release there was no mention of continuing casting announcements. They released the picture and their names and that was it. Therefore, there was no reason not to accept that that was the cast. The only official word of there indeed being more casting announcements came 5 days later on the following sunday, in the video selfie with JJ and Lawrence Kasdan. You have no authority to say that people aren't aloud to voice their disappointment with something. People were, and still are, well within their rights to voice their disappointment about there only being one female role until it's proven otherwise.

      Delete
    8. Dude, what did I just say? Look at the linked picture on this very post... it was taken BEFORE the big casting announcement. Why would they take a picture of Maisie Richardson-Sellers reading a script if they didn't intend on casting her for the role?

      Below I copy/pasted the original casting call that was made... multiple female roles.... end of story. The video that JJ and Kasdan put out was to appease trolls like you who jumped to conclusions without knowing the full scoop.

      Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.
      Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.
      A late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.
      Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanour. Also doesn’ t need to be particularly fit.
      A second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.
      Forty something male, fit, military type.
      Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.

    9. And I repeat, we are talking about the same Abrams that made lost, which is a show that passes the bechdel test with flying colors. He's not a sexist!

      Delete
    10. "Why would they take a picture of Maisie Richardson-Sellers reading a script if they didn't intend on casting her for the role?"
      Since when is that Maisie Richardson-Sellers reading the script? That's just assumption and doesn't even change anything anyway. I mean how do you know that that's even the star wars script in the first place?
      "Below I copy/pasted the original casting call that was made... multiple female roles.... "
      So what? Scripts change all the time. Characters are brought in and out. It may have changed. What's a casting call got to do with a final announced cast?..
      "we are talking about the same Abrams that made lost, which is a show that passes the bechdel test with flying colors. He's not a sexist!"
      When did I say Abrams was sexist? What has Lost got to do with anything? The problem is with the cast of star wars episode 7, not with JJ Abrams as a person. You're not making any valid points to anything, let alone anything relevant to the problem of a lack of female characters. JJ Abrams as a person, a casting call, some picture about some girl reading some script, it all has nothing to do with it. At the time of releasing the cast, they mentioned nothing about further casting, therefore people were upset with the fact that there was only one new female character. Completely justified complaint. Why do people view this as some terrible awful thing to feel when it's actually a completely valid point to bring up. They are not idiots. There's nothing to argue against. Stop making up rubbish or bringing up irrelevant points which even lowly scrape the barrel as much as to just include assumptions anyway.

    11. Calm down, Aras. Relax. Relax. I already said I knew they were casting for supporting roles and such, calm down...

    12. "I mean how do you know that that's even the star wars script in the first place?"

      Seriously? Come on...I think it's fairly obvious, I mean what else is bad robot doing that's so secretive right now? The burden of proof remains on your side I'm afraid.

      "When did I say Abrams was sexist?"

      That seems to be the implication this whole argument we are having, I mean why are we talking about lack of female characters if sexism isn't the topic of discussion?

      When I brought up "lost" or anything else to do with Abrams, I think you will find he is beyond congnizant of feminism and diversity. All of his work thus far seems to have passed the bechdel test, which would render your assumptions faulty at best. I don't think Star Wars will stray from what's been a pretty consistent career for JJ.

      "Why do people view this as some terrible awful thing to feel when it's actually a completely valid point to bring up."

      Because this argument has been dragging on for a month now despite all the information we don't know. You say that I'm working on assumptions, I mean the news is there, you can read it. You are the one saying that Abrams "may" have changed the character lineup after the casting call. Again... the burden of proof is on your side. This idea that JJ changed his mind about the cast last second is just totally absurd, all the evidence points to the contrary. I'm sorry, but I think I'm the only one who's offered anything close to evidence... what do you have to support your argument? Generalizations that = zilch.

      Additionally, no where in that casting announcement did Abrams say "this is the final cast". He was trying to give us some goodies but instead people just argue and argue instead of being happy about the bits that are revealed. I'm calm... just annoyed.

    13. I'll respond to the parts from your post that apply to me.

      "That seems to be the implication this whole argument we are having, I mean why are we talking about lack of female characters if sexism isn't the topic of discussion?"

      I certainly never accused Abrams or Lucasfilm of sexism, which can easily occur even with a full cast of women. What I and many others were talking about is a lack of female representation among the main cast. This reaction came right after the release of the main cast and before we heard rumors that one or two more female roles might be added to the main cast.

      "When I brought up "lost" or anything else to do with Abrams, I think you will find he is beyond congnizant of feminism and diversity. All of his work thus far seems to have passed the bechdel test, which would render your assumptions faulty at best. I don't think Star Wars will stray from what's been a pretty consistent career for JJ."

      I never doubted that JJ would pass the Bechdel Test. Even the Prequels passed when Padme talked with her handmaids, body doubles and various female politicians (including that deleted scene from III). And I was aware that actors' names would continue to be released for supporting roles and such. My concern was for the MAIN CAST. Out of 7 brand new cast members, 6 were male. At the time, this cast was released with the impression that THIS WAS IT as far as they were concerned. There was no heads up that JJ was still looking to add more females to the main cast, so, naturally, many fans voiced their outrage.

      "Additionally, no where in that casting announcement did Abrams say "this is the final cast". He was trying to give us some goodies but instead people just argue and argue instead of being happy about the bits that are revealed."

      He didn't have to say it. If you release the main cast without saying that you're going to continue adding to that main cast (I'm not talking about supporting roles), it's safe to assume that the main cast released IS IT. Thus, the reaction over the great lack of female roles among the 7 brand new roles.

      "I'm calm... just annoyed."

      Uh huh. You (and many others) sounded effing pissed off. Sample quote:

      "OMG how many times do we have to go over this? They were still casting!!! Do you know what "casting" means?"

    14. It's never over 'till the fat lady sings, as they say. Let's wait until there's no more doubt that the original 7 are 'the full main cast'. Personally, I think we're in for a big surprise! Next Wednesday, maybe?

    16. To the first Anon commenter who bashed us for wanting more female roles (a crime, I know,) let me say that if this rumor is confirmed, and we do get two more female characters, I for one will stop saying how "Star Wars is a boys club." Do you hear me? I will STOP BRINGING UP THIS ISSUE. To all you OT fanatics who like bashing the prequels, 10 years later, you can sure learn from this.

    17. It's been my belief that from the get-go, JJ Abrams has written SW7 with one, if not two female protagonists/antagonists in it and that we haven't seen all of the main cast yet. I think that we might be in for a huge surprise next week, maybe Wednesday.

    20. If I'm illogical please observe the opposing points of debate:

      Some guy who thinks that JJ abrams tossed out a script that took years to write so he could add 2 female lead roles into a film that's 2 weeks away from shooting (all because of some internet comments?)... vs. me who said look at the evidence. I never really saw any good arguments against the points I made, only answers to my descriptions as to why the ample evidence out there seems to imply JJ always intended to have multiple female leads. I never saw JJ saying final casting was complete, so I really don't see what we are arguing about since we've come to the conclusion that JJ isn't sexist and that He said we are still waiting on final cast announcements. So instead we are arguing about people being impatient and jumping to conclusions based on assumptions. The only illogical thing I did was bothering to participate in this debate to begin with... that's 10 min of my life I'm not getting back.

    22. If what Aras is saying, that JJ Abrams always intended SW7 to have a female lead/s, then I'm in total agreement. This is 2014, not 1974, and JJ Abrams is not alone mindful of that but is, I believe, of that persuasion anyway.

  11. As for the concerns of the "Skywalker" name: Honestly, do we know how the whole "last name" business functions in the Galaxy? Do women HAVE to take the last name of their husband upon marriage, and is there a LAW against children preferring the family name of their mother instead of that of their father?

    As for Leia, she in any case used the family name of her adoptive father, Organa.

    3. I dunno, I'm a feminist and I thought a lot of these complaints were pretty stupid. I didn't jump on the "calling other Star Wars fans sexist for even the most minor infractions" bandwagon.

      And I'm sorry, while I did like them... the prequels did suck. Darth Vader "nooooooo!" + "rough like sand" = 'nuff said. The Prequels had their moments but the terrible parts were pretty agonizing.

      Delete
    4. Prequels were terrible. Fact. Whether you like them or not if your subjective opinion. Justin Biebers music is bad. Fact. But if you like it then don't shit on me for not liking it and seeing it for what it's worth. As for the lack of female characters, it's a huge shame. And a huge shame for the idiots who say that people aren't aloud to dislike the fact there's a lack of female characters. But since JJ later said that casting announcements weren't over, there is a ray of hope left.

      Delete
    5. So basically what you're saying is that people should refrain from making fun of ICP or nickleback fans? There's no way you are going to convince me that you've never made fun of someone for liking something that's bad... we all do it. But considering that we agree then I don't see what the dispute is?

      There are more female leads, I think that's all but settled. I don't see a lot of people saying that other people aren't aloud to dislike the lack of female characters... what I do see is them saying is that some people shouldn't jump to conclusions based on the first cast announcement.

    1. I don't know... I'm a feminist and I found that a lot of what other feminists on here say is pretty obnoxious. I found a lot of parallels between this and when Piers Morgan got targeted by the trans community after hosting Janet Mock... they gave him hell when all he wanted to do was help, a little misunderstanding got blown *way* out of proportion.

      Just a little advice for feminist dudes who are trying to get other dudes not to be sexist: don't start by calling them sexists, it just makes the problem worse. But to be honest I haven't really seen outright sexist comments being made, not on this post at least.

  24. They say politics makes strange bed fellows. Never have I seen it more represented then right here. On one side you have the feminists and on the other guys who could care less as long as they get their fill of T and A and it's all about a movie for kids.

  25. Some really bitter dudes on here. What's the matter, guys, you don't like beautiful young women in SW? You would rather beat off to a sexy picture of John Boyega in full Gamorean Guard uniform? What the hell is wrong with you guys? We have enough sausages in Star Wars to feed every Philadelphia Eagles fan for the next 10 years. There will be women in SW. Get over yourselves or get laid.

    1. Believe it or not, there are some of us guys who are not so perverted that we actually go to a kids movie to enjoy a good story rather then get a porn fix.

  26. Anon, who gives a shit? All that matters is they cast to fit the story. If people write the story to fit some pc fucktard vision of what would be fair to all races and both sexes, then they need to be shot. The story should be top. God forbid they mold the story because people think they should. An artistic direction, an inspiration should be adhered to. If the storyline called for 19 females, great! If 1, great! If none, plus a turtle, great! This is Star Wars. You are along for the ride. Accept it.

    1. "If people write the story to fit some pc fucktard vision of what would be fair to all races and both sexes, then they need to be shot. "

      First of all, relax. Take a deep breath. There's way too many fanboys getting worked up over this. Calm down and be respectful of others.

      Why does the story automatically have to change just because the cast is more diversified? Is it not possible to give the story top priority while diversifying the cast?

      So many people on the Internet want us to believe it's only either/or when it can be BOTH.

    2. Oh don't be so pretentious Chris. Writing a female character does not somehow shift the story out of preportions to fit females in. It's the most basic thing ever to make some character a female. Stop treating it like it's this huge sensitive thing. Half the world is female. Half the world is male. Stop making out that having females would be bad for the story. It's sexist. If 80% of the cast were male you would be shouting your 'pc fucktard' opinions wouldn't you. Just because you don't care about a problem doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist.

    4. I'm ultra liberal but I somewhat agree with Chris. PC folks please read what Bill Maher says about this issue... political tribalism renders what was intentionally tolerant to be just as intolerant as sexists.

  27. And anon @ 12:55... you misrepresented Chris's argument when you said "Stop making out that having females would be bad for the story. It's sexist." Please re-read what he wrote: "If the storyline called for 19 females, great!". I think you owe Chris an apology.

  28. Women have no place in this universe, unless they are the offspring of important male characters, sexy dancers or used as slaves. End of.

    1. They're also occasionally needed to birth out new characters. -_-
