As soon as it was announced that Mads Mikkelsen was joining the next installment in the Star Wars film franchise, I already was saying “shut up and take my money!”
I don’t know about you, but I think Mads is a great actor and will probably watch just about anything he’s in. Thanks to a translated Ekstra Bladet interview from StarWars7news, we got to find out just a little info on Mads’ character in Star Wars: Rogue One.
Q: On IMDB your name is listed just after Felicity Jones. It suggests that it is a great role. Is it a big role?
A: I have not actually noticed that. It is probably because the other might not have come on the list yet [smiles].
Q: But is it a big or a small role?
A: It is a very important role, as much I can say.
Q: Are you the bad guy?
A: No, my character is actually not a bad guy, and then I can not say more.
So now we know that his character isn’t a bad guy and is also a very important role. Great! The more Mads the better in my opinion. It was also revealed that he will b spending three months filming his part and that it will be shot in both Iceland and England.
Star Wars: Rogue One will be released on December 16th, 2016.
