A trio of Indonesian actors from last year’s “The Raid 2” – Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman – have just emerged as apparent cast members of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” reports Twitch Film.
The casting has not been confirmed by LucasFilm or any of the actors’ representatives at this time, and there’s no word on what characters they apparently played. Considering their background, it’s highly likely they were involved in some fight sequences.
Uwais played the leading character of Rama in both films. Ruhian was the fierce Mad Dog in the first and the killer tramp Prakoso in the second. Arif Rahman played ‘The Assassin’ in the second who took on Rama in the film’s memorable kitchen fight scene.
Filming on “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” wrapped in early November.
