While it’s unknown who Arjona is playing, it is said she will “star opposite Diego Luna.” That implies she could have a lead role in the Rogue One TV show, perhaps as one of Cassian’s closest allies in the Rebellion. While the Rogue One movie alluded to Cassian’s dark past, it was light on specifics – including who he may have worked with.
NEWS:According to Deadline, 6 Underground star Adria Arjona has been cast in the Rogue One spinoff. Unsurprisingly, details about her character are unavailable at this time.
Arjona’s already racked up a number of high-profile credits in her career, including Pacific Rim: Uprising, 6 Underground (one of Netflix’s biggest original movies ever), and next year’s Morbius. Despite having those titles on her résumé, Arjona is still a relative unknown, similar to many Star Wars stars that have come before her. It’ll be interesting to see if the Rogue One show is what makes her a household name and opens the door for even more opportunities, a la Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. She definitely seems to be a star on the rise, so landing a principal role in Star Wars could put her over the top.
