At least that’s according to Tambay A. Obenson over at Shadow and Act, who over the weekend reported that a fourth black person, Crystal Clark, has joined the cast of “Star Wars Episode VII.”

Clarke hails from New Jersey but is currently studying in the U.K., and she’ll be making her feature debut alongside Pierce Brosnan in 2015’s “The Moon and the Sun,” an action movie based on Louis XIV’s quest for immortality.

Star Wars could be Clarke’s breakout role.

“The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent and in casting Episode VII we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition. We are delighted that so many travelled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to make Crystal and Pip a part of the film,” said producer and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

Clarke will join John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, and David Oyelowo, who’s rumored to be involved.
