Bight as an orange alien who IDs Finn and Rose to the authorities.
The “Baby Driver” director is a
friend of director Rian Johnson and he can be seen standing (middle) with his
brother Oscar, comedian Joe Cornish and producer Leo Thompson. The quartet play
resistance fighters in the film.
Best known for her work in period
pieces like “Pride and Prejudice,” the star was 14 when she was cast as Queen
Amidala’s decoy. It would be another four years before she would break out in “The
Pirates of the Caribbean.”
The future director of “The
Beguiled” wanted to shadow family friend
George Lucas while he worked on set. He threw a costume on her and she became
part of the action as one of Padmé's handmaidens.
Bond was unrecognizably hidden behind the helmet in the scene where he is
guarding Rey and falls for her Jedi mind trick. Craig was filming “Spectre” in
Pinewood Studios while this movie was being filmed, asked the crew for a small

The “Trainwreck” funny man lent

Simon Pegg has been very involved

Theroux ("The Leftovers") is probably one of the easiest
cameos to spot as he looks more like his human self than most cameos. He is gambling
and hanging with the ladies (one of whom is model Lily Cole) on Canto Bight and frustratingly does not help Rose
and Finn, even though they journeyed there to find him.
The directors of the "Star Wars" films like to trade places as Edwards appeared in this film while director Rian
Johnson made a cameo in Edwards film, “Rogue One.” Johnson is hard to spot as an
Imperial officer, but here you can see Edwards on the left as a soldier on Crait.
(“Clerks”) is a well-know fanboy and got to live the dream in 2015 as a Stormtrooper.
He even has a line: “We
have incoming at 28.6! Move!"
“The Affair” star was still
unknown when he shot his role as one of Queen Amidala’s guards in 1999. It
would take another eight years for him to get to his breakthrough role on “The
This is less of a cameo and more
of a “I didn’t know that was him!” when actor and director Edgerton (“The Gift”),
then unknown, played the part of a young Uncle Owen, adopted father of Luke

assistant to Senator Padmé Amidala. Her one job seems to be to protect Padmé, helping her to safety several times during
Going way back to the first series
of films, the “Cheers” and “Toy Story” actor had a small part as a rebel

The successor to Queen Amidala is

time, which was perfect to be playing the Naboo ruler, who is usually a teen
