"Like so many children, I'd play Star Wars as a child. My friends and I would pretend that we were piloting spaceships and using the Force to overcome overwhelming obstacles and take part in epic battles. That little boy would never have dreamed he'd be actually find himself on set aboard a spaceship and fully immersed in the visuals and drama of Star Wars. It's a dream that I think many people have had and I feel so fortunate to have been cast in this film."
