Two New Additions to the Cast of Episode VII; Production to halt in August
Today there were two official announcements made in regards to the ongoing production of Star Wars: Episode VII. First, two new actors were added to the movies cast. Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen are two young actors who auditioned for the movie through the open casting call that was announced at the end of 2013. Their roles in the film have not been announced yet.
the other news that was announced is that production of the film will be shut down for two weeks in August. The reason for the hiatus is so changes can be made in the current production schedule while actor Harrison Ford recovers from the broken leg he suffered on set last month.
More details on both of these announcements can be found on the official Star Wars website.
