Actor Karl Urban has revealed that he had a secret cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Speaking to Digital Spy, Urban confirmed he played a Stormtropper in the sci-fi film and did some voicework, and revealed how his involvement in the movie came to be.
“I had the good fortune to go and visit JJ Abrams 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,” Urban said.
You can see Urban in his Stormtrooper costume in a scene on Kylo Ren’s ship. Urban also utters the line “Knights of Ren,” as Kylo Ren walks down a hallway past two Stromtroopers–Urban played one of them.
