Domhnall Gleeson Talks A little Episode VII With MTV News


MTV News recently had the chance to chat with Domhnall Gleeson at the grand opening of a new Harry Potter theme park expansion at Universal Studios in Orlando, where of course they brought up Star Wars when talking to him. As expected, Domhnall Gleeson didn’t go into too much detail about anything regarding Episode VII, but he did share what made him want to take the part, and how he’s going about not revealing anything about the movie. Here is what he told MTV News:

On accepting a role in Episode VII-

“I’m a pessimist by nature, so it’s always the worst things that come to mind first, whenever you make a decision, or have a decision to make. So of course, yeah, you worry the way it will disrupt the way you live your life.”

“The truth of the matter is, I was in ‘Harry Potter’ and I can walk in the street and no one bothers me. It’s totally fine. The only reason I’m doing ‘Star Wars’ is because the script is great, because J.J. [Abrams] is great, and because the cast are great. And that’s what you look for in any movie. So in a way, it’s just another job.”

On making sure he doesn’t reveal anything about the movie-

“I could destroy my life if I gave away one of the secrets, really quickly. I’m just always with a no-talk policy about it.”

“I enjoy going to a film and being surprised, maintaining that is an important thing generally. I’m going to keep my mouth shut until the movie is all the way out and on DVD. So I don’t upset anyone.”

And his response when they asked him if his beard had anything to do with Mark Hamill growing a beard-

“No,” Gleeson said when asked if he was sporting a perhaps Jedi-inflected beard, “but I haven’t been on set for a couple of weeks, so that doesn’t give anything away.”

Well it might be safe to assume that we won’t be hearing any new info about Episode VII from Domhnall Gleeson anytime soon. But it’s still great to hear another actor in the movie give more praise to the script and J.J. Abrams.
