We probably already know Domnhall Gleeson’s Star Wars role (Spoilers)

By: Marv Castillo

Just in case you didn’t pay attention to the title, this article may have tiny spoilers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I don’t really want to spoil the movie for anyone and what this contains is really short and can’t ruin the story, but read at your own risk.

We got a sneak peek at a lot of people from the cast of the new Star Wars movie. The trailer hit theaters and the web last year and some images with the character names were released too. However, Domhall Glesson (Frank, Ex-Machina) has been pretty much kept in secret. Many of you may already have guessed which his role is.

These news come from Making Star Wars, who have really great sources and know most of the details of the long awaited sequel. This may be true: Gleeson is Luke Skywalker’s son. He is not only Luke’s son, he sends Gwendoline Christie’s characters to hunt down rogue trooper Finn, played by John Boyega. Domnhall Gleeson is an Imperial commander. Is he good or bad? Read the site’s statement below:

The implications of Gleeson’s actions are supposedly huge in the film. He began this mission before his father went missing. When he succeeds in ending the Intergalactic Cold War by stopping the weapons of galaxy wide destruction he doesn’t anticipate the immediate consequences. The cost?  He opens up a new front and the war turns hot as there is nothing to keep the peace with mutually assured destruction no longer on the table. The real war then begins and the fight for the control of planets and territory begins, causing a conflict the storytellers hope will lead to countless Star Wars tales for years to come.


The role may be obvious and probably everyone guessed it before the report, but it’s good to know the kind of role he plays. This will be a good movie.

Of course, since this is a Star Wars movie and everything is locked inside of Abrams’ Mystery Box, there’s no confirmation from Disney.
