Very Minor Update: Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Featured Extra and Ford’s stand-in.

By  | 

Star Wars 7 News has a bunch of new updates on extras and their listed roles. I have something for the pile to contribute. Frank Stone. Frank will be playing a Rebel in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and was present for the “Pirate’s Cove” shooting. After a little bit of digging, I’ve learned he’s a featured extra which I assume means he has a line in the film.

Tony Pankhurst was also Harrison Ford’s stand-in for most sequences.

If you want to get into the really esoteric side of things, here is Frank’s Stone’s show reel:

This stuff is a bit too far for me overall. But I did like that Frank Stone is playing a “pirate” which means “Rebel” was interesting to me in connection with past stories about “Pirate’s Cove.”

On a side note, SW7N found: Geraint Jones – Resistance fighter

I think the resistance fighters fit into two different places in the film, based off what we know. The first would be the burning village, the troopers meet resistance from locals and there is some evidence on the jungle planet, resistance is met once again. If one is a better guess than the other, I’d go with the burning village connection. We may never know the answer to these questions though.

If extras are your thing, head over to Star Wars 7 News and look at their huge pile of them.
