    Since apparently Gugu Mbatha-Raw is (sadly) out of the running, I thought it'd be nice to create threads for other possibly candidates for Ep. VIII female roles. So here's one! Assuming Bel Powley is cast in Episode VIII, what do you think her role might be?

    Lol what a bum that Luke. Everyone around him turned to the dark side. I wonder if the birds and the rocks on his island did too.

    That's a compelling theory.

    She could also be a love interest for Finn. Maybe someone affiliated with the Resistance who helps him recuperate.

    She is intrested in Finn. Finn rejects her to pursue Rey creating a triangle. That's my best guess

    A female Dark Sider, perhaps a member of the Knights of Ren. If not, an amoral bounty hunter.

    Honestly, I'd be fine with that. It won't happened, but I be willing to roll with it if the relationship was done well.

    My guess is they'll hook up Finn with a love interest in VIII, who then turns out to be covert agent, captures Finn and hands him over to the first order. Finn will then incite rebellion in the ranks of the stormtrooper corps in IX.

    A young Leia, for Rogue One. Can do both English and US accents and also has a round face like Carrie Fisher had.

    I think it's safe to assume based on how it seems Han may have been the only main character to die and by how things played out in TFA as far as who was who that you can assume when you hear someone has been cast they will have a very small role. We spent tons of time speculating who was going to be who in TFA and most of them were in the movie for 1 min as a bar patron or a stormtrooper who just died. Just about all the main characters most likely lived so prob a small role.

    She reminds me of the actress that played young Aunt Beru in the prequels.

    Shame Gugu Mbatha-Raw is out, she's lovely and a brilliant actress. I wonder if Bel Powley's role is the same as hers was rumored to be—a role that apparently required chemistry tests with Boyega. People had speculated that she could be Finn's love interest based on that information.

    What if she's another stormtrooper Finn knew, and he convinces her to defect?

    Is she out of it? Was she ever actually in the running in the first place? This could all be another mystery box thing going on with her. Or she may have never been contacted at all for any part as she herself claimed during one a red carpet event for "Concussion". We don't know what is true regarding this casting nor how many roles are available.

    I kind of feel like it's a bit presumptuous to make a thread for this before she officially is announced to get the role. Even if Daisy Ridley and Rian Johnson are Twitter buddies with her.

    Then again, I'm writing an article about Episode VIII's rumored cast with her in it, so what the f*** do I know?

    i don't think knight of Ren.
    she's a woman, and a say this because then knights of ren are likely to be the elite of what ever order they come from. in a chivalrous type of order like knight's its more likely to be based on strength. unless she is force sensitive it would seem unlikely she would be in the top tear of a male dominated order based on strength, and from the clip we saw, they look like they are a fighting order? she certainly isn't a Gwendoline Christie type. big, dominant women so yeh, probably a love interest, but for who I'm not sure?
