Speculation is swirling like the mists of Dagobah around newcomer Maisie Richarsdon-Sellers. Several sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that she is in line to nab an undisclosed and possibly major role in the high-profile Disney/Lucasfilm production, which is in the middle of an extended casting search in London in advance of a May production start date.
A name has begun to shine through the extended casting search being held in London. Her name is Maisie Richardson-Sellers. While neither Disney/Lucasfilm as well as the young actress’ reps could not be reached speculation is rising for this Oxford-educated Student.
While some speculate she could be filling the “mixed” role of a young Kenobi descendant no word has really been given on what role she is speculated to be up for. With everyone under the sun being seen by JJ and crew its nice to get a refreshing face in the mix. With principle photography only a few weeks away the production crew are hoping to find their leads quickly. While we know she has appeared in such plays as For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide,Mephisto and There Will Be Red, we are excited to see the skills of this actress. If she is indeed cast, I am sure the community will welcome her with open arms.
