There has been a lot made about the potential names that could be added to the new Star Wars cast whenever it gets announced. From big stars like Benedict Cumberbatch and Saoirse Ronan to others who have been rumored but aren’t yet as well known, the list of potential actors who could show up in the film is seemingly endless.
That’s not stopping Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen from throwing her hat in the ring. While being interviewed by Access Hollywood, Wen noted that one project she’d love to be a part of is the new Star Wars film, and went as far as to say even a small cameo would be enough to make her happy.
Judging from the comments made by Michael B. Jordan and Saoirse Ronan, it sounds like Wen’s call in to audition isn’t far off from happening. Both actors mentioned how wide the search for cast members is, as both have brushed off their auditions as basically part of the process.
But Wen could work her way into the cast in a smaller role given that Abrams has an eye for unknown talent, and right now Wen is still just known as that actress from S.H.I.E.L.D., which she wants to prove she more than.
It’s hard to say what her chance are to appear in Star Wars, but you can’t blame her for trying in any way she can.
