The actors for new Star Wars will be found in Ireland and Great Britain
The actors for the new episode of Star Wars will be chosen during an open national casting, which will start in Great Britain and Ireland next week.
The information about the casting has leaked via Twitter of the casting assistant Claire Curry. Although the name of the movie is not mentioned in the announcement, the journalists have noticed that the verbal portraits of the heroes largely coincide with the descriptions of the characters of new Star Wars that got in the internet in June 2013. It is also known that the casting is being held by Disney Company, which bought Lucasfilm in October 2012.
The candidates for the roles of a strong street-smart lady of 17-18 years old and a gifted young man aged 19-23 will be screened during the casting. The characters were named Rachel and Thomas in the announcement. The actors will be interviewed in several cities of Great Britain and Ireland.
The filming of the seventh episode of Star Wars is scheduled to start in the spring of 2014. J. J. Abrams will be the director and the coauthor of the movie, which is expected to be released in 2015.
