Did you spot all these British and Irish actors in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?

The Force is STRONG with the acting talent from this side of the Atlantic

Daniel Mays – Tivik

The Line of Duty and Mrs Biggs star enjoys a stint on screen as a contact of rebel spy Cassian Andor (Diego Luna).


Genevieve O’Reilly – Mon Mothma

Irish born actress O’Reilly – who you’ve probably spotted in Episodes, The Honourable Woman, Banished and The Fall – reprises the role she took over from Caroline Blakiston for Revenge of The Sith. O’Reilly’s scenes were cut from the prequel finale, so Rogue One gave her a second shot at Star Wars glory in the guise of the Rebel senator.

Alistair Petrie – General Draven


The Night Manager and Utopia star is well known to UK audiences thanks to a jam-packed CV featuring roles in Undercover, New Blood, Sherlock, Whitechapel and The Forsyte Saga to name but a few. Now he’s known to Star Wars fans as the gruff Alliance military man, General Draven.
