Ralph Ineson, best known for portraying Dagmer Cleftjaw on Game of Thrones, had his role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi cut but his scenes will be apart of the film’s deleted scenes.
Asked by a fan on Twitter where Ralph Ineson was in the movie, writer-director Rian Johnson revealed that his scenes had been cut, though he was in the film for a split second:
His actual part was cut, it’ll be in the deleted scenes. He’s in the finished movie for half a second, blink and you’ll miss him when F&R are caught at the tracker.
— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) January 13, 2018
An entire sequence which depicted Finn, Rose, and DJ sneaking through the destroyer was cut mostly due to time restraints. It appears that Ineson’s scene is from this sequence.
It’s not clear if the entire sequence will be available on the Blu-ray but it’s good to know that fans will at least get to see Ineson’s performance in some capacity.

10 Women Who Should Direct A ‘Star Wars’ Film
Everybody’s talking about Star Wars right now. Mostly good, but others not so good. Fandom is divided.
Another topic on everybody’s mind is Hollywood’s treatment of women and representation. Natalie Portman made a comment during the 75th Annual Golden Globes ceremony when introducing the Best Director category, pointing out the “all male nominees.” Some found this comment just right given the state of affairs at this year’s Golden Globes speaking out against unbalanced power dynamics between men and women in Hollywood in the wake of the sexual harassment scandals. Others found the comment rude. Whatever your opinions on the subject are it can’t be denied that you don’t see or hear about as many women directing movies, particularly big budget movies or highly sought-after Oscar bait films.
Star Wars is one of the most profitable franchises in the world. It is instantly recognizable and pretty much any Star Wars films are guaranteed to be a hit. Back in 2016, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy drew ire from some critics for saying the studio wanted to bring in a woman to direct Star Wars but wanted to make sure they had experience. However, Lucasfilm hired male directors with a range of experience to semi-seasoned (Phil Lord and Chris Miller) to barely any (Josh Trank) without hesitation and those investments haven’t really paid off. All nine Star Wars films have been directed by men and so will Episode IX and the next few spin-offs that we know about.
We’ve decided to highlight ten talented women directors that have more than enough experience, talent, and creative voice to helm a Star Wars movie, be it a saga film, Rian Johnson’s newly planned trilogy, or a spin-off film. Click Next to get started!
