Ray Fisher recently discussed the audition process for Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens compared to Cyborg in Justice League.
While Justice League star Ray Fisher is best known for bringing Cyborg to life in the Zack Snyder film, he also had a shot at appearing in another huge franchise, Star Wars. The star opened up during his Twitch stream about the audition process for the role of Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, comparing the experience with how he snagged Cyborg in Justice League.
Ray Fisher revealed that his Star Wars audition didn’t go any further than a taped performance and that was that. He also explained that he didn’t know the context of the lines he was reading. He compared the process to his Justice League experience, where he went to meet some of the team involved with the production of the film. Fisher also said that the Star Wars audition was simply a baby step towards a role, while he took it all the way for Cyborg.
“I did not audition in any intense capacity for Star Wars. In fact I wasn’t even technically made aware of what the stuff was that I was reading. I don’t think it went further than me putting something on tape and having that be that. But with respect to Justice League we had the audition process, [we] went and met with folks involved with production, we had a testing process and all of that stuff. My experience with Star Wars was probably the equivalent of like maybe a first step, a baby step of what a process would be. And my experience with Justice League would be, you know, taking it all the way.”
