The Name of Mads Mikkelsen's STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE Character Revealed

We've got another little detail to share with you regarding Mads Mikkelsen's character in Gareth Edwards' Star Wars: Rogue One. While signing a poster for a fan, Mikkelsen revealed the name of the character he'll be playing in the film, and that name is Galen. 

We previously learned that Mikkelsen's role in the film is "very important" to the story and that he is not a villain. Other than that, we don't know exactly what his purpose in the movie is yet. He's a great actor, though, and there's no doubt he'll be awesome in the film. 

The movie is currently in production, and it follows a group of Rebels who are sent out on a mission to steal the plans of the Death Star. 

I should also note that Galen is the real name of the main character from the Force Unleashed video games, Starkiller. I seriously doubt that that Mikkelsen is playing a version of this character, but the name could just be an homage to Vader's powerful secret apprentice.

Star Wars: Rogue One hits theaters on December 16th, 2016.
