New Star Wars Episode IX Casting Call Looking for Actress to Portray 'KARINA' Supporting Role

    Another supporting role for Star Wars Episode IX needs to be filled, as a new report suggests that director J. J. Abrams is searching for an actress to play a street-smart character referred to internally as 'KARINA'.





    This report comes from That Hashtag Show, who have so far been accurate about two roles - 'MARA', described as being 'a female lead, 40-50 years old', and 'CARO', described as a 'captivating naturalness and ease to her manner' with charisma and intellect in spite of being between 18-26 years old. The former role appears to have been filled by Keri Russell (which Variety noted is an action-heavy role), while Naomi Ackie will be portraying the latter. Incidentally, they have now noted that 'CARO' is now being referred to as 'LUCY' for some reason, while 'MARA' has not been seen in any documents they've come across.



    But the real story seems to be that there's another new character being thrown into the mix: 'KARINA', described as 'a younger Charlize Theron with street smarts and a sharp wit... a good sense of humor, solid comedic timing and a strong voice'. The role is said to be a supporting role, which is likely less prominent than the ones initially announced. In spite of Charlize Theron being name-dropped as a frame of reference, the role is open to actresses of any ethnicity.



    With the additions of Billy Dee Williams, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Dominic Monaghan, Matt Smith, and now 'KARINA' to an established ensemble, the cast for Episode IX is already larger than its predecessors. With a cast of that size, still growing a month into production, it seems likely that this movie is going to dwarf The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi in terms of scale as there will be plenty of ground for Abrams to cover. With this in mind, Abrams has previously emphasized that the story of the movie will focus on the four leads introduced in The Force Awakens: Rey, Ben, Finn, and Poe.



    Star Wars Episode IX will be released on December 20, 2019. Its cast includes Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Billy Dee Williams, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Jimmy Vee, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Greg Grunberg, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Dominic Monaghan, and Matt Smith. Archive footage of Carrie Fisher will also be utilized.

    But seriously now, we're getting too many new characters! I can only hope these castings are for the KOR.

    Take Domhnall Gleeson - he was cast against his type, it's not like something like this has never happened before.

    But this is how they describe the character, isn't it? Not the actress they're looking for. Besides, it would be weird to put out a casting call for a specific kind of actor just to cast him/her against the type. :p

    Tatiana Maslany fits the description perfectly.

    As for people complaining about 2 many characters. I wonder how many also want the Knights of Ren to be part of the movie. None of these new rolls have to take up a great deal of screen time. They could be parts of pivotal scenes with groups of people, like the Knights of Ren, like Resistance/New Republic leadership, like First Order leadership. They dont need to have deep backstories or need to take focus away from the existing characters.

    Maybe all the new people are the Knights of Ren. I'm kidding, but who knows

    Just because they introducing all these new characters doesn't mean that they are going to take up a lot of screen time. Look at Max Von Sydow in Episode 7. People thought he was going to be a major villain to Pleguis but it turns out he had a very minor role (which I felt like was a waste for that big name of an actor).

    His part was small but very important as it perfectly set up the character of kylo ren. All his lines were packed with loads of feeling and information. Very well written dialogue. Having him at the start of the film was genius. He has a great presence and I think gave a lot of weight to the two first scenes of the film. Incredible voice too.

    Well. Most of the characters died.
    Leia will likely be relegated to a smallish role due to the nature of the circumstances.

    Poe, Finn, Rey, Kylo, Hux. Only confirmed major players. Luke is likely to be a supporting role.

    We still need our Lobots, Jabbas, Bobas, Bossks and Pando Babas of the world.

    How is it any more characters than any other movie? I mean most of the one's we met in TFA died almost the instant we met them, so dont worry.

    I was hoping he had a bigger role than that. He's one of my favorite actors and I felt like he was a waste in that scene.

    I understand that he was perhaps wasted, as he’s such a great actor and it would have been nice seeing him more, but to me he wasn’t a waste in that scene. Quite the opposite.
