Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Adds Valene Kane

valenekaneValene Kane, star of The Fall and Thirteen, has been added to the cast of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Kane will be playing Lyra Erso, wife of Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) and mother of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones).

How big the role of Lyra is remains to be seen. Jyn is the main star and we know that Galen is a pivotal character as he works on the construction of the Death Star and alerts the Rebels to the existence of the weapon.

Kane spoke to Belfast Live about the casting:

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
