Gleeson will keep Star Wars secrets

Domhnall Gleeson has revealed he does not mind the secrecy surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Frank star has had to sign non-disclosure documents, ahead of his appearance in the upcoming seventh instalment of the sci-fi franchise alongside fellow newcomers Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and John Boyega.

"I would say it's the most secrecy I've had to work with, just because you have to sign so many things," he told Radio Times.

"I don't even talk about it. I'm not even afraid I'll let anything slip anymore. I'm just aware that it's actually boring because I know the answer is I can't talk about it."

Episode 7, which will be released in December 2015, will be directed by JJ Abrams. It will also feature returning stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

The storyline has been kept under wraps, and several characters including Domhnall's have yet to be revealed.

Domhnall, who next stars in sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, said: "Once I got to set, the way JJ was working and the love, the genuine love for Star Wars that was everywhere on set - it made me want to protect those secrets."
