Merlin villain Katie McGrath wants Star Wars: Episode VII role

December 25 2012

BBC's Merlin ended on a high last night, and it looks like Katie McGrath is looking to  to got to a galaxy far, far away for her next role, revealing that she would be a ball of jelly if she got a role in the forthcoming sequels in the Star Wars Saga.

In a recent interview with Metro, the actress who portrayed the villainous Morgana in the hit series said "I'm very excited about the possibility they could be like the first three, I'm a bit scared they might be like the prequels, I'd melt into a puddle on the floor if that ever came my way. I'd be a ball of jelly. I'd want to be a bad guy though.

You get to have all the powers of a Dark Sith Lord but if you say you're sorry you still get the blue aura around you when you die.

There also haven't been any bad women in Star Wars. And I'd love to get my own Star Wars action figure."

While the hunt is on to find a director to helm the Disney sequels, Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt is on writing duty while Star Wars Saga alumni Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Ewan McGregor, Samuel L Jackson and Peter Serafinowicz who voiced Darth Maul in Episode I: The Phantom Menace have expressed interest in returning to the iconic series.
