The casting directors for Disney‘s new Star Wars movie — April Webster and Alyssa Weisberg in the U.S. and Nina Gold in the UK — have sent casting breakdowns to agents.

Here’s the list of characters in play sent around, so have fun trying to figure out who’s who: A young man aged between 20 and 25, witty and smart, fit but not classically handsome, Man in late twenties, also fit, but this one is handsome and confident. Late teenage girl, independent, good sense of humour, also… physically fit . Second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and physically fit. Man in his forties, obviously physically fit, this one is a military type. A man of around thirty or so, this one is an intellectual type. Finally, a guy aged around seventy, strong opinions and tough.
