Michael Fassbender: ‘We talked about a role in Star Wars’

The film starred fellow Irish man Domhnall Gleeson


Michael Fassbender has admitted that he had talked about a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens – but it never happened.

The hit movie was filmed on Irish soil at Skellig Michael for Luke Skywalker’s epic return and there was almost another Irish man along with Domhnall Gleeson in the cast.

“We talked about a role. We had a conversation,” the actor said about the film franchise.

Of course, Michael didn’t end up starring in the film but explained why he didn’t land a role in JJ Abrams hit movie.

“I’m pretty sure I was busy doing something else in the summer [when] he was kickstarting that,” he told the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

The Kerry native didn’t reveal who he was set to star as in the film.
