This ought to make a lot of people happy. The rugged one Tom Hardy is set to star in the next installment of the Star Wars franchise, The Last Jedi.
According to actor John Boyega, who plays former Stormtrooper ‘Finn’, Hardy has an uncredited role in the film. Boyega, who was on BBC Radio 4 speaking about the upcoming film, mentioned that Hardy was on set the same day that the Royal Family and that he had shot a couple of scenes.
It’s not unheard of for big names to have roles in films where they are barely – if at all – seen. Daniel Craig featured as a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens, and Take That’s Gary Barlow secretly filmed a cameo at Pinewood Studios earlier on in the year.
On the subject of the Royals having a cameo, in the movie, Boyega vehemently states that their scenes have been cut out. Good, ’cause there’s room for only one true Royal in the SW-verse and that is Princess Leia. Long live
