Star Wars: Episode IX is now reportedly casting a supporting speaking role.

Despite filming for Star Wars: Episode IX is still underway, it does not seem the casting director’s work is done. Apparently, there is at least another female character the movie needs before it premieres next year.

According to The Hashtag Show, J.J. Abrams, LucasFilms and the Disney company are looking for a female actress with comedic timing.

The Hashtag Show says,We have gotten word from our source that they are now on the hunt for an actress, 27-35, to play a supporting role in the J. J. Abrams-directed film. The studio is looking for “KARINA”, described as “a younger Charlize Theron with street smarts and a sharp wit.” The studio is open to any ethnicity, but is looking for someone with “a good sense of humor, solid comedic timing and a strong voice.”

The Hashtag show also says its source says the role has been downgraded from a lead role to a supporting role. As the movie moves into production, the script should be finalized soon and the possibility of not needing as many more roles.

But this gives Star Wars the chance to do some additional fine tuning to the movie.
