“I read the script. It was very beautiful and Felicity’s playing this lovely, strong woman [and]I play her father.”
As he’s mentioned before that his role in ROGUE ONE is important (and not a bad guy), so it would make sense that he’d be playing Jyn Erso’s father. Mikkelsen’s other credits include Hannibal, Casino Royale, and Doctor Strange.
