James Bond Stormtrooper
The actor Daniel Craig is present in” The Awakening strength”. During filming, the rumor of his presence had circulated before being denied by the person concerned. However, the actor who played 007 in the film is JJ Abrams, who turned in the same Pinewood Studios as “Spectrum”
In episode VII of “Star Wars”, Daniel Craig never shows her face. It appears Stormtrooper armor that monitors heroin Rey (Daisy Ridley), trapped in the planet-weapon Starkiller, having been captured by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
The exchange between the two characters proves short Rey demanding the soldier to detach, it replied: “I will intensify this relationship, dirty plundering”
The shadow of Obi-Wan Kenobi
The legendary Jedi Master is present in “The Awakening of force.” However, it takes a good ear to recognize it. When Rey and Finn (John Boyega) take refuge in Kanata Maz (Lupita Nyong’o), the young heroine falls on the lightsaber Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). By touching it, she intense visions (flashbacks views of the future?) Where we hear: “Rey, what are your first steps”
This sentence was doubled by Ewan McGregor (interpreting Obi-Wan Kenobi in the episodes I to III), came to this unique tirade, reports “Entertainment Weekly”. All mixed with the voice of Sir Alec Guinness (embodying Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episode IV), according to the recordings made in 1976, as the actor died in 2000.

Actor Warwick Davis and unconditional fan of” Star Wars “, known for his role of ‘Wicket Ewok in “Return of the Jedi” is back. He interprets Wollivan, one of the characters in the tavern where took refuge Rey and Finn.
In this scene, the actor is also present Judah Friedlander (seen in” 30 Rock “).
Zombies at Millennium Falcon
It’s hard to admit, but the actor Simon Pegg (known for” Shaun of the Dead “) is much of the game.

We were looking forward to seeing the actress Gwendoline Christie (known for her role of Brienne Torth in “Game of Thrones”) interpret “the first female character villain” from ” Star Wars. ” She plays the Phasma Captain, a senior Stormtrooper. It never takes away his helmet, and its role is confined to a few lines. His character, however, may expand to the next film as it is announced in episode VIII (expected for 2017).

” Star Wars “is definitely a family affair. In the ranks of the Resistance, and we see the actress Billie Heavy , which is none other than the daughter of Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa). She embodies the “Lieutenant Connix” and also features the same hairstyle with macaroons as the iconic Princess episodes IV to VI. However, in history, no relationship between the two characters is established.
