Star Wars 7: Oscar Isaac on working with “enthusiastic, energetic, collaborative” JJ Abrams

The star of Inside Llewyn Davis and the forthcoming Episode VII chats "nerd-gasms" and meeting Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill

If you’re a member of the Star Wars cast, your ability to keep your mouth shut is just as important as your acting talent. JJ.Abrams hotly anticipated Episode VII is shrouded in secrecy with fans kept in the dark for an entire eighteen months before the cast were announced last month. 


Among them was Oscar Isaac, star of the Coen Brothers’ critically-acclaimed Inside Llewyn Davis and The Two Faces of January, who was lucky enough to sit down for a chat with this week. And we even managed to squeeze some precious Star Wars details out of him, talking everything from his “energetic” director to “nerd-gasms” and meeting the original trio Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. 

But our favourite detail? The self-confessed Star Wars nut is excited about going to fancy dress parties as himself. Take a look at the full interview below… 

The Two Faces of January co-stars Viggo Mortenson and Kirsten Dunst and is out in UK cinemas now
