Production is well under way on Star Wars: Episode VII – in fact, the cast and crew are scheduled to take a break next month to fine-tune their plans and to work around Harrison Ford’s leg injury. But there’s still space in that galaxy far, far away for more fresh faces, and according to Latino Review, Christina Chong will be among them.

Chong, who was most recently seen in 24: Live Another Day, has joined the cast, though we don’t – in true J.J. Abrams style – know exactly who she will be playing yet, and whether she’ll be on the light or dark side of the Force (or, you know, somewhere in between; there’s room for subtlety).

She’s just the latest new recruit, with her casting ferreted mere weeks after it was announced that Pip Anderson and Crystal Clarke had made it through the huge open auditions. They all join the confirmed ranks of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Max von Sydow, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley in the film.

With shooting in Abu Dhabi now complete, Star Wars: Episode VII is in progress at London’s Pinewood Studios, with the release still on track for December 18, 2015.
