By now, you might have heard about who it was inside the stormtrooper mask in that scene with Rey and which duo of comedy stars was partially responsible for the “voice” of BB-8. And, of course, we’ve known for a while that Simon Pegg was able to wrangle a cameo as an alien, because just try and keep Simon Pegg away from a Star Wars movie.
But did you notice this other cameo? Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who played Jojen Reed in Game of Thrones and Adorable Moppet in that movie that sucks, and I don’t care what you say, shows up very, very briefly about 20, 25 minutes into the film, after Poe and Finn hijack a TIE fighter. He has one line: “We have an unsanctioned departure from bay two.” He’s in the credits as “First Order Officer,” so it’s definitely him.
So my question is: How many desserts did he have to give to Gwendoline Christie on the Game of Thrones set to wrangle an invitation to be a The Force Awakens extra? Or does he have blackmail on her? Did he just show up uninvited in a homemade First Order outfit and no one asked him to leave?
