The casting report claims that "The role calls for action-heavy fight scenes", which may have felt outside of Russell's wheelhouse until recent years, but roles on The Americans and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes have cemented her badass cred. J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm executives met with several actresses for the role over the past two months before eventually settling on Keri Russell a few days ago. The pair also previously collaborated on Mission: Impossible III, where Russell starred alongside Tom Cruise, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Ving Rhames. Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac are all expected to return for the latest Star Wars installment. Abrams will likely cast two more actors by the time the film begins production at the end of the month.

Russell recently wrapped the final season of “The Americans.” She is repped by WME and manager Joannie Burstein.

Keri Russell might be shooting off to the Star Wars universe.
