Hannibal’s Mads Mikkelsen has unknown roles in two of 2016’s biggest movies - Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – but now the actor has moved to shed some light on his mystery Rogue One role.
Speaking to Sky News, Mikkelsen confirmed that he’ll be playing the father of Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso. “Felicity plays a young, strong woman,” he said, “and I play her father.”
The basic plot of Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One centres on a group of resistance fighters, led by Felicity Jones’ Jyn, as they attempt to nab the plans for the Death Star. Sounds a tad familiar, no? Set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, the film will also feature Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, and Alan Tudyk.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is currently set for a December 16th release.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
