It’s an Erso Family Affair After All in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Valene Kane, star of The Fall, reportedly play Lyra Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, so the first stand alone is really turning into an Erso family affair. Jyn is the main character and her Dad Galen plays a major role in the film’s plot, and now Mommy dearest is being added to the mix, but apparently in a flashback type of role.

Kane told Belfast Live about the part explaining, “I grew up watching Stars Wars and I didn’t believe it was happening until I was filming in Iceland. It has a really edgy independent vibe.” The Ersos will get even more attention in the upcoming book from James Luceno, Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
