Did someone say Royal Stormtroopers?
The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William and Prince Harry were filmed for cameo roles in the latest Star Wars film, it has been confirmed.
“I think they took that scene out. I’ve had enough with those secrets. They came on set. They were there. I’m sick of hiding it. It think it was leaked, anyway.” Star Wars actor John Boyega revealed.
John, playing as Finn in the movie, was giving an interview to BBC Radio 4 this morning when he was asked whether the royals were given lines for their cameo roles as Stormtroopers in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
He added: “There were images. Every time I get asked, I have to dodge it. I’m tired of dodging it. They were there. So was Tom Hardy.”
The princes visited the set in Pinewood Studios in April last year, where they chatted to crew, played with lightsabers — and befriended Chewbacca, being played by Joonas Suotamo.
Prince William admitted he was “a total geek” over the franchise, and he challenged his brother to a duel with lightsabers.
