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


Jordan Stephens – Corporal Tonc

If you’re Down With The Trumpets you’ll know Rizzle Kicks star Jordan Stephens pretty well. Rogue One sees him playing a member of the Rebel Alliance, who heads off on that all-important mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.


Paul Kasey – Admiral Raddus


Before there was Admiral Ackbar there was Admiral Raddus, a Mon Calamari who headed valiantly into battle to help the rebels steal the plans for the Death Star. Now, he’s voiced by American actor Stephen Stanton, but it’s British actor Paul Kasey doing the body work. And Kasey will be well-known to fans of Doctor Who, because he’s played all manner of creatures in the time-travel series and spin-offs The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood.

Tony Pitts – Captain Pterro


Emmerdale’s Archie Brooks has gone to a galaxy far, far away! British TV fans will recognise Tony Pitts as the popular young lad who met his demise in the 1993 plane crash. More recently you may have spotted him playing Sergeant Moss in BBC drama series Peaky Blinders. He also appeared as Detective Chief Superintendent Les Hargreaves in the second series of BBC’s Line of Duty, and played Lesley Sharp’s husband in ITV crime drama Scott & Bailey.
