Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, or whatever kind of term is appropriate within the STAR WARS vernacular, top space vehicle pilot and key technician Bodhi Rook treads a fine line between his duties to the Rebel Alliance, now vitally needing his skills, and a working career linked to the Empire. Is he the kind of simple man trying to make his way in the universe that Jango Fett was? Or will his genuine support for the Rebels shine through on the tropical world of Scarif? We'll find out in ROGUE ONE this December.
Bodhi is played by Riz Ahmed, a fine young UK actor emerged from the world of TV (recent acclaim has included THE NIGHT OF mini-series for HBO) and now mixing strong indie film work (check out the recent NIGHTCRAWLER, with Jake Gyllenhaal) alongside blockbusters like JASON BOURNE and ROGUE ONE.
