By CelebretainmentMay 24, 2019

Richard E. Grant and Keri Russell’s ‘Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker’ roles have been confirmed.

The 62-year-old actor and the 43-year-old actress appear in the final instalment on the new trilogy and although the pair where previously sworn to secrecy about their roles, Vanity Fair has now revealed that Grant will play Allegiant General Pryde, while Russell portrays Zorri Bliss.

Grant’s alter ego has been described as a “high ranking member of the First Order” who is thought to have a close relationship with Domhnall Gleeson’s character General Hux.

‘Americans’ star Russell will star as a “masked scoundrel” who inhabits the Thieves’ Quarter, an area on the planet Kijimi.
