Mads Mikkelsen had nothing against talking about football during the gala premiere of the new film ‘Sommeren ‘92’. He is as big a fan of football. But when it comes to his role in the major upcoming Star Wars film ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Mads Mikkelsen is, however, extremely secretive.
Mads: I cannot talk about the film.
On the internet movie database IMDB it says you are no. 2 in the cast just after Felicity Jones. It suggests that it is a great role. Is it a big role?
Mads: I have not actually noticed that I stand at no. 2 in the cast. It is probably just because the others might not have come on the list yet.
(Note: At this time the cast list is in order of ‘star meter’ status, not role importance)
But it is a big or a small role?
Mads: It is a very important role, that much I can say.
You’re the bad guy?
Mads: No, my character is actually not a bad guy, and then I cannot say more.
(Mikkelsen will be in Denmark until his filming of the new Star Wars film starts in mid-September.)
Mads: I am also quite game, and I can say that the movie be filmed in Iceland and England. And the filming lasts for three months.
