British singer songwriter, and founding member of ’90s boyband Take That, Gary Barlow has confirmed that he has filmed a cameo scene for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” but the question all Take That fans will want to know is, “Could it be Magic?”
The musician revealed that he had shot a scene for the upcoming installmentin the “Star Wars” saga during an interview on the UK morning TV show “Lorraine,” in which he confirmed “I’m not a stormtrooper, but I am in it.”
However, there is often a big difference between filming a scene and that scene appearing in the final film, as Barlow himself acknowledged. “Now I’ve said that, I’ll probably be out,” he quipped. “I think the ‘Star Wars’ people are so strict about what information [is divulged]. So me saying that, I’ve probably just done myself out of a role.”
If his scene makes it into the theatrical release, Barlow could be in some illustrious company, as it has been reported by various UK newspapers that Princes William and Harry have filmed a scene as stormtroopers at Pinewood Studios. And while he might not be in line to the throne, fellow Brit Gareth Edwards, who directed “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” apparently also has a small cameo role.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, “The Last Jedi,” stars returning actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie and Andy Serkis, and is set to open on December 15.
