The Star Wars Saga will continue in 2008 with LucasArts' biggest-ever video game event. Set during the "dark times" between Episodes III and IV, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed portrays the previously untold story of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice -- and now you can put a face to that mysterious character as well as a major supporting character as LucasArts unveils two actors set to star in The Force Unleashed.
Nathalie Cox, Juno EclipseNathalie Cox brings an intriguing mix of beauty and brains to her role as Juno Eclipse in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The British actress started her career as a fashion model, and as demonstrated by Banana Republic's latest billboard campaign, her modeling continues to flourish in that arena. Cox also remains dedicated to a career in acting. Her involvement in The Force Unleashed, numerous British television programs, and movies such as Kingdom of Heaven (where she played the wife of Balian, Orlando Bloom's character) prove we'll certainly be seeing her on screen for years to come.
Sam Witwer, Secret ApprenticeExcited to play the role of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Chicago native Sam Witwer is best known as Lt. Crashdown in Sci-Fi's "Battlestar Galactica". Witwer also has impressed audiences with his portrayal of the squirrelly Neil Perry, a recurring troublemaker on Showtime's critically acclaimed series "Dexter". Most recently, Witwer completed shooting for his first major feature film role, Wayne Jessup in Stephen King's The Mist. Prior television appearances include roles in "JAG", "ER", "Arli$$", "Dark Angel", "Angel", "NCIS", "She Spies", "Cold Case" and more. In his spare time, Witwer writes and sings lead for his Los Angeles band, The Crashtones.
Both actors will be making their first public appearance at Star Wars Celebration IV. And be sure to check upcoming Production Diaries for more about the actors and the casting process.
