Spoilers, obviously.

So obviously this goes without saying, but moderate spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens are below.  Do not read any further if you haven’t seen the film yet, and want to stay completely spoiler-free.

Again, there are Star Wars spoilers below.


Ready? Good.

A little past the film’s midpoint, Rey attempts a force-persuasion on a Stormtrooper. That stormtrooper, it turns out, was played by none other than James Bond himself, Daniel Craig.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Spectre was filming “yards away” from where Star Wars was, and the actor was able to quietly film a brief, albeit memorable, cameo.

Unlike one of the film’s main characters, this stormtrooper never takes off his helmet and only has a few lines of dialogue, so don’t kick yourself for missing this one.  The actor himself denied it a few months back, but, then again, wouldn’t you want to keep that surprise as long as possible too?
