James Bond star Daniel Craig is reportedly set for a secret cameo appearance in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’.
The ‘Skyfall’ actor is a big fan of the science fiction saga, and he has apparently filmed a mystery role in the upcoming seventh instalment of the franchise, reported Daily Mirror.
“Daniel asked for some sort of secret cameo role – and was happy to have his name left off the posters. Fans will love trying to work out which covered up character is him,” a source said.
Craig, 46, who will reprise his role as the fictional British spy in the as-yet-untitled Bond 24, is said to have begged ‘Star Wars’ director JJ Abrams for the small part due to his love for the series.
‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ will see the return of original actors Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and R2D2 star Kenny Baker.
They will be joined by John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie. The release is set for December 18, 2015.
