In the dog days of summer Saturday afternoons when the kids are huddled around the tv watching The Lego Movie in the comforts of air conditioning, this author decided to peruse the internet. Back a couple of months ago the BBC reported on two actors that were cast in Star Wars: Rogue One – A Star Wars Story via a casting website Spotlight.com. After a quick search of there database today another hit came up within their search engine. A performer, Rege-Jean Page, a British actor and alumni of the National Youth Theater in London and infamous Drama Centre London (source – IMDB).
Both of the actors the BBC reported on turned out to be correct and Spotlight.com has a stellar professional reputation. Given that this Author does not have access or a subscription to the site, I cannot positively verify this story. Rege-Jean Page looks the appropriate age and experience that would be perfect for Rogue One.
We just thought we would shed a little light on this find and let the more experienced scoop hounds take it from there. In either case let’s hope it pans out as Rege-Jean Page would be a great addition to the stellar cast.
