Red Twelve to Blue Five

There’s no denying it – chances are the first proper Star Wars spin-off movie Rogue One is going to break box office records when it opens later this week. Shrouded in secrecy, the film is hotly anticipated, bridging the gap between the sixth film in the franchise (2005’s prequel Episode III) and the first (1977’s Star Wars).

And if you’re wondering why we see fit to mention the film on these pages, it’s because IMDB have reported that there are two very special cameo appearances in the film. If you wish to go in completely unspoiled, look away now. We’ll reveal who below the following image.

Yes, in amongst the top notch cast the film has assembled – including Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed and Forest Whitaker, are two Ealing Live veterans TVO holds very dear to our hearts – none other than Simon Farnaby and Richard Glover.

We’re not able to reveal more than that, sadly, other than IMDB claim their character names are, as the title of this article suggests, Blue Five and Red Twelve respectively, and these characters may have been previously mentioned within the series itself. We’re sure a lot of you will be able to tell us more when the film is released across the world from this Wednesday.

And if you’re actually a Star Wars fan who has stumbled upon this page, and has no idea who Glover or Farnaby is, you’ll find your answer within the many oniony layers of this website, so stick around and get comfortable – there’s lots to show you.
