Diego Luna May Have Screen Tested With Darth Vader!


Back at Star Wars Celebration Europe, ET’s Ash Crossan got a chance for a brief exclusive with Rogue One’s Diego Luna. That interview was released by ET today and contains a few interesting comments from the man who will be Cassian Andor.


It is important to note that ET has titled the video Rogue One Star Diego Luna on Screen Testing With Darth Vader. From Luna’s comments in the video it is difficult to say whether he is discussing a story of witnessing a screen test involving Darth Vader or actually participating in one. It is possible that the title of the video implies that ET confirmed the context of the story elsewhere, but that is an unknown at this point.  Suffice to say, the comments do heavily imply that we will see Cassian Andor in a scene opposite that iconic Dark Lord of the Sith.


The rest of the interview is brief, but Luna discusses his appreciation for keeping the secrets of the movie, his character’s relationship with Jyn Erso, and why he thinks this film is so different than the main saga films.


Check out the full video below.




If Diego Luna indeed did do a screen test with Darth Vader, then Cassian Andor’s chances of surviving Rogue One suddenly became really slim.

    Seriously, where can I get jackets like all the awesome looking Rebel fashion jackets that Cassian Andor wears?

    All Diego Luna said was that he happened to go to a camera test that Gareth Edwards was doing with Vader before they even started filming. He wouldn’t have revealed any spoilers, especially after he spent the first part of this interview extolling the virtues of keeping films secretive.

    Apparently it involved choking…. 🙂

    I figure that Vader is going to kill all or most of these characters. That would be a great way to end the film, and give us something to make him seem really evil.

      yeah sure, then one or two arm’s chop off, and we are good

    I fully expect at least one of our main cast to get a throat hug from Darth Vader. Who is the question. All of them? One? December needs to come sooner.

    I think Vader will kill him. Just a wild guess.

    I think it’s time to stay off the internet until the movie is released. Darth Vader ending these guys was inevitable but let’s leave it up to the imagination for now.

      I’m just telling myself that Vader’s gonna kill all of ’em. Then I’m prepared for whatever carnage actually happens.

    I hate to rain on folks parade, but if you think about it, Darth Vader is an imperial-hating psychopath. The majority of the people he kills are on his side! Jedi Younglings, Separatist leaders, Fleet Officers – I mean really his kill tally for folks he works with is much higher than the opposition. Vader had Luke, Han, and Leia, and while he tortured them he did not kill them. He could have dissected Chewbacca but instead sic’d the dog whistle on him. He didn’t kill Ashoka, and technically Obi-Wan transformed before the saber ever struck him.

    If you go back and tally the actual body count, Vader really is a “bogey man” who’s reputation and ego are bigger than his bite, as far as being a rebel goes. My bet would be that Luna’s character survives if he doesn’t work for Vader!

      Do you REALLY think that the only people that Vader has killed are the ones that get shown in the films?

      • October 16, 2016 at 5:06 am

        I don’t count offscreen “implied” kills. Legends are legends due to the second hand retelling of stories that were often started by someone who never even saw the events they described.

          In the new canon Vader has wasted more then his fair share.

          By your logic, no one has ever used the bathroom ever either, so how are they still alive?

          The Rebels fear Vader, which implies they have a reason to.

            Thank you for explaining that. some people are really…daft.

    Nowhere in the interview does it suggest he did a screen test with Darth, but still a good interview with a couple of cool anecdotes.

  • October 16, 2016 at 3:27 am

    He shook Vader’s Hand. Cool.
    BUT- Jyn Erso and Cassian sitting in a tree, K, I, S, S, I, N, G.

    Wondering if Cassian Andor is a young Lando Calrissian

      Vader burns him, turning his skin several shades darker. /s

      he’s kyle katarn alter-ego

    We will find that Diego Lina’s character is a latent force-user.

    George Lucas has given you a Gift,
    Becareful with it for it is fragile,
    One Mistake and you will destroy it and all that it is worth and all that it means will fade away into the Darkness of your Fame.
