STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS: Amybeth Hargreaves Will Play A Female Stormtrooper

BBC's Lizo Mzimba has uncovered a very interesting cast addition from Spotlight UK, where relatively unknown British actress/model Amybeth Hargreaves is listed as a Stormtrooper.

Now obviously without more details, we can't be sure in what capacity she will show up in the film -- but it's unlikely Abrams and co. would cast a female Stormtrooper if they weren't planning on revealing that much to viewers by having her appear without her helmet on. But there is also the possibility that she's actually only a stunt double/stand-in for Gwendoline Christie's character, who is rumoured to be an Imperial of some kind and Finn's (John Boyega) commanding officer. Hargreaves does stand 6-feet tall so that would make sense, though hopefully that's not the case and we see a completely different female Stormtrooper in action when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits this December.
