Daniel Craig visited the set of Star Wars Episode VII at Pinewood Studios for two days of shooting. He supposedly filmed an uncredited cameo at his own request, according to British tabloid reports. Its not uncommon though for big name celebrities to have unlisted roles. Richard Branson was seen for about 8 second of Casino Royale going through security. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin had two cameos in Shaun of the Dead – one as himself, and again as a zombie in a background shot.
As related by The Verge, here’s the gist of the rumor: “Daniel is close friends with JJ Abrams. He asked for some sort of secret cameo role — and was happy to have his name left off the posters.”
So he will either be in heavy makeup, a mask, or it will become a game of spot-the-Bond.
Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled for release December 18th, 2015.
