Thanks for all the rumours and updates, Shem!

We may as well do away with actors entirely soon. I can see why Ian McKellen was reportedly annoyed whilst filming The Hobbit.

Ian McDiarmid was a young man playing an old man in the original trilogies. He was around the right age when the prequels came around.

My only concern is that Peter Mayhew, as much as we all love him, hasn't been in the best of health over the last few years, especially since having both his knees replaced. I just hope that the filming schedule doesn't add to those health problems.
