WWE Wrestler To Star As Darth Vader
WWE wrestler Sheamus has found some clever ways to give his fans hints about his upcoming role as Darth Vader without breaching his contract and getting fired by director J.J. Abrams.
It all started on July 30th, when the 36-year-old wrestler posted a picture of Darth Vader toys, including the iconic light-saber, that he received as a present from Mattel. Minutes after sharing the photo of the toy, the Assault of Darkness actor uploaded another photo of Vader with his light-saber. On the snapshot Sheamus wrote his signature phrase “fellllllaaaa.”
If those were not enough clues that he had indeed landed a role in the forthcoming installment of the Star Wars saga entitled Star Wars 7, Mr Sheamus O’Shaunessy went out of his way to deny, well confirm the news. Sheamus whose real name is Stephen Farrelly, tweeted an article from an Irish paper to speak about his new movie and gave the funny answer below:
“I cant confirm that I wont not be reprising role of Darth Vader in #StarWars … I hope that’s clear @IrishMirror ;)”
If that quote does not say that Farrelly is the new Vader; well, we don’t know what will.
The cast of Star Wars 7 composed of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford were spotted on Skellig Michael island just miles from Ireland filming scenes for the highly anticipated movie and guess who was also seen there? You guest it right, several crew members took to Twitter to reveal that Sheamus was seen hanging around with the other stars.
Wrestling lovers will have to keep enjoying Sheamus in the ring for the next year, because Star Wars 7 will only arrive in theaters on December 18th, 2015.
