First Of ‘Star Wars’ Spin Off Movies Lead Cast Found?

The first ‘Star Wars’ spin-off film may have landed its leading star… as I hear that ‘Orphan Black’ actress Tatiana Maslany has landed the role.

The 29-year-old Canadian actress was recently rumored to be up for a part in the upcoming ‘Star Wars’ spinoff film, directed by Gareth Edwards. And while she was one of several new actresses linked to the role, it looks as though Maslany may have landed the part.

According to a source close to production, the still unknown ‘Star Wars’ spin-off has landed Tatiana Maslany as its leading lady.

Of course, she was recently linked to the galaxy far, far away when her name emerged among the likes of Rooney Mara and Felicity Jones who had apparently auditioned for the part. But I was soon contacted by a trusted source, who revealed that Maslany was apparently the front-runner for the role.

Unfortunately, they didn’t have any details on what that role might be… except that (as earlier reports suggested) it is apparently the leading role. But I later heard from my source again, explaining that they’d heard that Maslany had landed the role.

Although they were unable to verify it themselves, they heard that Maslany had impressed Disney and Lucasfilm early on, and had been offered the leading role. Although this has not been verified, a new article over at Entertainment Weekly certainly adds fuel to the fire.
