As we get closer to the end of the year and the premiere of Star Wars: Andor, more and more news starts coming from the production. Today we have a bit of casting news from the website Spotlight, which lists Rosalind Halstead as playing a character simply known as “Sculdun’s Wife” in an episode directed by Benjamin Caron.
Doing a bit of Googling on her (because I honestly have never heard of her), she seems to have fairly steady work (mainly bit parts) since the early 2000’s in quite a few British television shows. The various shows include Sherlock, Holby City, Doctors, White Dragon and more.
Unfortunately, there is no more information as to who Sculdun or his wife is in the show. Hopefully more information will be available over the next few months.
Star Wars: Andor is an upcoming Disney Plus series created by Tony Gilroy. It is a prequel to the Star Wars film Rogue One, following the character The show is developed by Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton) and stars Diego Luna who will reprise his role of Cassian Andor from 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma, as well as Stellan Skarsgard, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw and Kyle Soller.
