Mads Mikkelsen confirms his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story role

Spoilers below. Speaking to Sky News, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actor Mads Mikkelsen said very little about his role in the film, but did tease that he is indeed playing Jyn Erso’s father as Jason reported earlier. Here is our earlier spoiler report on Mikkelsen’s role in the film with more detail. Check out the video to hear that he has to say about Rogue One as well as Doctor Strange and his recent award.


Reporter: How did you feel when you were approached?

Mikkelsen: Mmm, a little scared. I mean I wasn’t really sure whether I was wearing a Stormtrooper outfit or anything like that, at that point. And I wasn’t sure I could fit in to that. I read the script. It was very beautiful. And Felicity is playing this lovely, young, strong woman and I play her father. And that was too much, I’m sorry.

The Sky News reporter continued to try and tease info out of Mikkelsen.

Reporter: Oh and you can tell us if Darth Vader is in it, as well then.

Mikkelsen: Yes, I can, but I won’t.

Here’s our audio recording:

It’s wonderful to get actors finally teasing us about their roles as we get closer to the film’s release. As far as we could tell Mikkelsen’s character was not in the first Rogue One teaser trailer, so let’s hope he gets his own TV spot or is featured in the next trailer!
