Mads Mikkelsen

It was revealed that Mads Mikkelsen joined the cast of Gareth EdwardsStar Wars: Rogue One during the live-action film panel at D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim. The actor wasn’t present in the “good guys” cast photo revealed at the con, and since he is known for the villainous roles he has played in Casino Royal and the Hannibal television series, many people speculated that he might play a villain role in Rogue One. But according to the actor, that is not the case. The Danish actor had a recent interview with local newspaper Ekstra Bladet revealing a few tidbits about the movie and his character. Here is the transcript via StarWars7news translated with Google Translate:

Question: On IMDB your name is listed just after Felicity Jones. It suggests that it is a great role. Is it a big role?

Mads Mikkelsen: I have not actually noticed that. It is probably because the other might not have come on the list yet [smiles].

Question: But is it a big or a small role?

Mads Mikkelsen: It is a very important role, as much I can say.

Question: Are you the bad guy?

Mads Mikkelsen: No, my character is actually not a bad guy, and then I can not say more. I can also say that the movie will be shot in Iceland and England. And the filming will last for three months.

So there you have it. Mads will have a “very important role” but he is not a villain, and the film will shoot for three months, in England and Iceland.

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens edition of the X-Wing Miniature Game, which will hit store shelves on “Force Friday”, gives us a clue as to how many Rogue Squadrons to expect in the upcoming film. We’ve heard that Poe Dameron will be the Black Leader, and we’ve seen his black X-wing fighter, so you’d assume his squadron is the Black Squadron right? The cards in the game confirm there are also Red and Blue Squadrons — not a big surprise considering we saw the blue x-wings in the first trailer.
