Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen confirmed today via Sky News that he is indeed playing Felicty Jones’ character, Jyn Erso, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It has been rumored to be the case for a few months now, but it’s always cool when these things become official.

Worth noting, he mentions that Rogue One “comes between Episode 7 and 8,” but he just means that it’s the next movie before Episode 8 — not that it takes place in the story chronologically in that order. Rogue One actually takes place right before the events of A New Hope.
