Who is Maisie Richardson-Sellers? Meet the 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Frontrunner!

Casting is almost complete for the highly anticipated movie Star Wars: Episode VII and now newcomer Maisie Richardson-Sellers is being rumored for the female lead, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Maisie is a British student at Oxford University who has acted in several stage plays and one short film. It is being speculated that she could be up for the role of “a young black or mixed-race woman who may be a descendent of Jedi Knight Ben Kenobi.”

It is expected that unknown actors will be filling many of the main roles, as director JJ Abrams has done with many of his films in the past.

While she is being speculated for a role, sources say that Maisie has not yet been officially offered anything yet.
