While we know who the returning actors are as McGregor and Hayden Christensen, who is returning as Darth Vader, there are still those whose roles in the series have yet to be revealed. Today at least we got an idea of who Game of Thrones star Indira Varma would play thanks to more sneaky footage on set.
