Fans will obviously remember that Alec Guinness originally played Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: A New Hope. Although he was also known as Ben Kenobi, which Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker often used to refer to him. It’s a nice touch that Sally Guinness appeared in the last chapter of the new trilogy since Alec Guinness starred in the very first chapter of the original series.

The making-of documentary that comes with the digital version of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker reveals the hidden cameo from Alec Guinness’ granddaughter as a member of the First Order opposite Kylo Ren. She plays part of the First Order council that Kylo speaks to when he’s in his full Supreme Leader role while wearing the reforged version of his iconic mask.
