List of Celebrity Cameo Appearances in The Last Jedi

These days it's almost a given, but franchise legend Warwick Davis makes his 10th appearance in a Star Wars movie in The Last Jedi. That's just an incredible run! Davis is a genuinely nice guy and the fans just love him, so it's no surprise he keeps being asked back for a turn. Long may it continue!
But he's not the only star to make a cameo appearance in the Rian Johnson-directed epic. In fact, a veritable plethora of celebrities shows their faces (or not, in some cases!) in the movie.
Star Wars, in general, is a franchise known for its celebrity cameos – both of the sneaky and non-sneaky variety. In this piece, we'll take you through all of the celebrity cameos that we know of in The Last Jedi.
  • Frank Oz returns to the franchise as both the puppeteer and voice of Yoda in an unexpected performance.
  • It's been confirmed by Finn actor John Boyega that the two Princes William and Harry visited the set and had a turn as Stormtroopers. They were cut from the final movie, though! Off with the director's head!
  • Gary Barlow, the popular singer-songwriter from the 1990s boyband Take That, also donned the infamous white and black, as did Bane and Venom himself, Tom Hardy. However, both men's performances only made the cutting room floor.
  • Gareth Edwards, the director of Rogue One, has a small cameo as one of the Rebels fighting in the trench on Crait. He has R1 written on his tunic if you'd like to identify him.
  • Actor and comedian Adrian “Ade” Edmondson, of Bottom and The Young Ones fame, has an extended cameo as a First Order Officer.
  • 500 Days of Summer star Joseph Gordon Levitt does the voice of the alien that turns in Finn and Rose at the Canto Bight Casino. Levitt has appeared in several films directed by Rian Johnson so there are no surprises there. The character was called Slowen Lo.
  • Actor, filmmaker, and screenwriter Justin Theroux plays the Master Code Breaker that Finn and Poe are sent by Maz Kanata to meet.
  • Star Wars veteran Warwick Davis plays Wodibin – his ninth appearance in Star Wars. He actually filmed a second part – his tenth overall – but it did not make the final cut of the movie. This article's featured image is of him as Kedpin Shoklop from a bathroom scene at Canto Bight that was cut.
  • Actor Noah Segan, who has appeared in every Rian Johnson movie, has a small spot as an X-Wing pilot.
  • Star Wars icon Mark Hamill also does the voice work for the chap that inserts the coins into BB-8 at the Canto Bight Casino.

And now for a couple of cameos with visual proof…
