Actress Saoirse Ronan, who previously confirmed
that she had auditioned for Star Wars
Episode VII, shared new details about the experience in an interview
"...I have to say, I think it's the only time I've ever thought, You know what? Even if I don't get it, I had so much fun auditioning, pretending to take out a lightsaber – out of a bag, kind of inspect it and not know what it is. That was...that was great. A lightsaber! Star Wars!"
Could this mean that she was indeed reading for the part of a female Jedi?
