Daniel Craig Really Was a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

After a fairly profane denial, it turns out that Daniel Craig actually did have a cameo role in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens after all! He was a minor part as a Stormtrooper with a handful of lines. He most likely filmed the scene while making the James Bond movie Spectre, which was also filmed at Pinewood Studios.

 

Spoilers!

 

According to Entertainment Weekly, the scene he appeared in happens late into the film. Rey is in captivity at Starkiller Base and calls upon the Force (which she’s kept her knowledge of hidden up until this point). She uses it to try and perform a Jedi Mind Trick on the guard, who is fairly resilient. I don’t want to say much else, as the scene in question is pretty funny.

 

But in any case, it looks like Craig couldn’t even hint about the cameo role beforehand. It’s probably for the best that 007 kept the fact that he’s a moonlighter for the First Order safe from MI6. (Or would that just make him a Moonraker?) In any case, go see The Force Awakens, as it’s playing in nearly every film market available.
