Phoebe Waller-Bridge of Fleabag fame is in talks to join the Han Solo spin off film. Another British brunette! Variety reports that Waller-Bridge is in talks for a “significant role” in the film, and a CGI character to boot. The article likens the character to other such established characters as C3PO and Chewbacca.

Not much is known about the spin-off film besides casting news, so this is an interesting development in characters. I am pleased that though she is a British brunette woman, something of a calling card in Star Wars casting, that this will be for a CGI role. No name or any more character information is given so we’re left to speculate for the time being.

Should she join the cast she’ll be joining the likes of Alden Ehrenreich playing the younger Han Solo and Donald Glover as the younger Lando Calrissian. In addition, new characters such as Emilia Clarke‘s unknown character and Woody Harrelson‘s mentor role.
