AceShowbiz - %cJohn Boyega% couldn't keep the secret anymore. The actor, who will reprise his role as Finn in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", has confirmed that Prince William and Prince Harry indeed have cameo roles in the upcoming movie.
During an interview for BBC Radio4 on Friday, August 18, Boyega was asked whether the U.K. royals were given lines in the film while filming their cameos as Stormtroopers. "I think they took that scene out," he replied.
"I've had enough with those secrets," he added with a laugh. "They came on set. They were there. I'm sick of hiding it. I think it was leaked, anyway. There were images. Every time I get asked, I have to dodge it. I'm tired of dodging it. They were there. Tom Hardy was there too."
Yes, Boyega said that "Dunkirk" star %cTom Hardy% also has a cameo role in "The Last Jedi". Hardy and the two U.K. princes won't be the first A-listers who make cameos in a "Star Wars" film though, since %cDaniel Craig% had a secret cameo and delivered a brief line as a Stormtrooper in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".
"The Last Jedi", directed by Rian Johnson, has completed production and is scheduled to open in theaters nationwide on December 15. %cDaisy Ridley% returns as Rey, %cMark Hamill% is back as Luke, and %cCarrie Fisher% filmed what would be her final appearance as General Leia before her sudden passing.
Other returning cast includes %cOscar Isaac% as Poe Dameron, %cAdam Driver% as Kylo Ren, %cLupita Nyong'o% as Maz Kanata, %cGwendoline Christie% as Captain Phasma, %cDomhnall Gleeson% as General Hux, %cAnthony Daniels% as C-3PO, and %cAndy Serkis% as Snoke. %cBenicio Del Toro%, %cLaura Dern% and %cKelly Marie Tran% are among the new cast members.
Plot details are still kept under wraps.
