Since the official Star Wars: Episode VII cast was revealed, there has been a lot of discussion about who the new stars who have joined the cast will play in the new movie. One actor who has joined the Star Wars: Episode VII cast is Oscar Isaac and he has been talking about landing the huge role.
While we do not yet know exactly who Oscar Isaac will play in Star Wars: Episode VII, the actor has teased fans a little about the biggest role of his career. Oscar says that he knew he had been cast way before the official announcement, revealing that he has had some intense conversations with J.J. Abrams about his character.
Isaac explained, "JJ and I have just been talking a lot about the character - his enthusiasm and his collaborative nature are so refreshing in a movie of this size. There was about a month where I already knew that I'd been cast, before the announcement, so it was tough to keep it under wraps. But you know, secrets can be fun."
As with a lot of the stars who have been cast in Star Wars: Episode VII, Oscar Isaac has admitted that he has been a big Star Wars for since he was a child. Oscar says that he used to collect the Star Wars memorabilia and even had Star Wars parties.
Isaac added, "I was a huge Star Wars fan growing up - my family collects the toys, and we had Star Wars parties where everyone would dress up as their favourite character. I came as a Gonk droid, but that was less about imagination and more about laziness, like, 'Damnit, I forgot to get a costume, just give me a cardboard box and I'll paint it grey!"
Star Wars: Episode VII will open on December 18, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
