The ‘Star Wars 7' cast continues to grow by the day and thanks to a PR email about new ITV drama 'Home Fires', we now know another name that will likely be appearing in the hotly anticipated film.

Leanne Best, most recently seen as the eponymous ghost in ‘Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death’, has been outed as a cast member of JJ Abrams’ highly anticipated ‘Star Wars’ sequel by an email announcing the actress’ availability for interview.

The message mentions her recent work on ‘Ripper Street’ and her new six-part drama adding “2015 will also see Leanne in JJ Abrams’ highly anticipated Star Wars VII”.

Her IMDB page currently makes no mention of her appearance in ‘The Force Awakens’ but you can expect it to be updated soon now the cat is out of the bag, however her role in ‘Star Wars 7’ is currently a mystery.

Of course, it could just be a misunderstanding on behalf of the person responsible for the email, but we’ll wait and see.

Earlier this month it was revealed that a trio of actors from kick-ass Indonesian martial arts epic ‘The Raid 2’ had also joined the cast of the sci-fi sequel.

Watch the first teaser trailer below.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' will be in cinemas on 18 December.
