Following that awesome teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, one thing that had been reported but kept from any released footage has been the inclusion of Darth Vader. Now thanks to Flickering Myth, it looks like it’s been revealed who’ll be donning the cape and helmet: Spencer Wilding.

You’ve probably seen the actor many times, without realising who he was: the Monster in Victor Frankenstein, a White Walker in Game of Thrones, and the blue-skinned headphone-stealing alien from Guardians of the Galaxy. At an impressive height of 6’7″, he should fight Vader’s costume nicely. Another juicy bit of information is that Wilding had been giving lines while on set, suggesting heavily that Vader will have a speaking role in Rogue One. Which means that James Earl Jones will probably reprise that chilling voice for the part – why on earth wouldn’t he?

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released on December 16.
