The Boys and Thor Ragnarok actor Karl Urban recently spoke to Digital Spy, where he revealed that he had a secret role during The Rise of Skywalker. Urban shared that he achieved his “life-long goal” to play a stormtrooper during the film:

“Here’s the process. I had the good fortune to go and visit JJ Abrams [the film’s director] while he was shooting The Rise of Skywalker. While I was there, he put me in a stormtrooper uniform and we had a really fun day on set. It’s been one of my life-long goals to be a stormtrooper, so I can tick that off now.”

In addition, Urban also unveiled the exact moment where his cameo can be seen and heard during the film’s theatrical cut:

“What is in the cut is my voice saying ‘Knights of Ren’ as Kylo Ren walks down a hallway past two stormtroopers. I am one of those stormtroopers.”
