It looks like Tom Hardy's cameo role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi has finally been revealed – and now we can guess why it was cut from the final edit of the movie.
Basically, it's all a bit odd.

Turning his head towards Finn, the soldier says "FN-2187?", hinting that things are about to turn nasty as the Stormtrooper realises that he is a defector.
The tension builds and weapons are about to be drawn when Hardy – or 926 as his character is known – says jovially: "I know I’m not supposed to initiate contact with officers, but I never took you for captain material. Look at you - captain!" before giving Finn a slap on the bum.
