Tom Holland Auditioned for John Boyega's 'Star Wars' Role & It Didn't Go Well!

Tom Holland auditioned for the role of Finn in the new Star Wars movies and totally blew his audition!

During an interview with Backstage, the 24-year-old actor was asked, “Do you have an audition horror story you could share with us?”

“I’ve had quite a few. I’ve read the wrong lines at the wrong audition before,” Tom shared. “I remember my audition for Star Wars, I was like four or five auditions in, and I think I was auditioning for John Boyega‘s role. I remember doing this scene with this lady, bless her, and she was just a drone. So I was doing all of this, like, ‘We gotta get back to the ship!’ And she was going, ‘Bleep, bloop bloop, bleep bloop.’ I just couldn’t stop laughing. I found it so funny. And I felt really bad, because she was trying really hard to be a convincing android or drone or whatever they’re called. Yeah, I obviously didn’t get the part. That wasn’t my best moment.”

Tom recently expressed his desire to take on this iconic role!

Fans Want Lucy Lawless To Take Over Role of Cara Dune After Gina Carano's Firing

Hours after it was announced that Gina Carano would no longer be part of The Mandalorian and Star Wars franchise, fans have picked their favorite to take over her role – Lucy Lawless.

Carasynthia “Cara” Dune is a former Rebel shock trooper turned mercenary in the popular Disney+ series, who eventually becomes a marshal for the New Republic.

While Gina originated the part, fans on social media are adamant that Lucy would be an even better actor for the role.

Star Wars fans are also suggesting that the franchise write an entirely new character just for Lucy as well.

“I’m 100% on board with @RealLucyLawless joining The SWU! She would be amazing!” one fan wrote in support of the suggestion. “I think I’d rather her be her own new character, though. Let Cara Dune just fade from existence. How about it @Jon_Favreau and @dave_filoni?

Another fan added, “The only acceptable answer to who should now play Cara Dune is Lucy Lawless.”

If you missed it, Gina isn’t the only actor let go over controversy. See who else was here…
