Rogue One actor Mads Mikkelsen clearly didn’t get the Disney memo titled ‘DON’T TALK ABOUT STAR WARS EVER’ ahead of his Sky News interview today, revealing he’s playing Jyn’s dad.

"I mean, I wasn't really sure whether I was wearing a Storm Trooper outfit or anything like that at that point," he explained.

"I read the script and it was very beautiful and Felicity's [Jones] playing Jyn, a young and very strong woman. I play her father.”

He very, very swiftly added: “And that was too much, I'm sorry."

The anchor replied: “Everyone in the gallery just went *gasp*”.

We do already have a trailer for Rogue One, but it didn’t give a huge amount away, especially with regards to Mikkelsen’s character.

The actor was also asked about Darth Vader’s potential involvement in the movie, but realised he’d already given away too much.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in cinemas on 16 December in the UK and US.
