“Fish Tank” star Katie Jarvis has had a pretty low profile acting career since breaking out in Andrea Arnold’s gritty 2009 drama opposite Michael Fassbender, but that may be all about to change as Latino Review (as well as The Tracking Board) are reporting that Jarvis may have landed one of the new female roles teased for “Star Wars: Episode VII.”

Additionally, a name we’ve heard in connection with JJ Abrams’ reboot of the sci-fi franchise before is resurfacing again. Maisie Richardson-Sellers, the complete unknown whose name first surfaced last month, but whose name was not called along with Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Domhnall Gleeson a couple of weeks ago during the first official casting announcement. Apparently there was fire under all that smoke, as some now strongly believe she has in fact landed a major role in the franchise. Perhaps the descendent of Obi-Wan Kenobi so often bandied about?

Apparently adding fuel to the fire is that both ladies have been spotted in and around Pinewood Studios, where the sequel is being filmed, and some of the other official cast members had leaked because of this same proximity to the production. Will it come to fruition again this time?
