Irish actor Saoirse Ronan – as seen in Byzantium, The Host and How I Live Now – has admitted she read for a part in JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, adding quite reasonably to Sky News, “so has everyone.”

She added that she was unable to talk about it, as the “bosses” would “chop off [her] head with a lightsaber.”

Star Wars: Episode VII is due in cinemas Summer 2015. You can buy Star Wars: The Complete Saga for £57.99 on Blu-ray from Amazon.co.uk.
