According to The Hot Mic with Jeff and Jon podcast, Logan actress Dafne Keen has joined the cast of The Acolyte, which has begun filming over in the UK.

Like most of the casting news for this series this latest rumor is just that until an official announcement gets made, and that’s if one is even planned. Currently, the only confirmed cast member for The Acolyte is Amandla Stenberg, who will be the series’ lead.

Dafne Keen is most widely known for her role in Logan where she played X-23, but she is currently starring in His Dark Materials on HBO Max.


In addition to this casting news, some official looking concept art for The Acolyte leaked this week, which you can view below.

The art supposedly features Senshiro, which is rumored to be the home world of Stenberg’s character. This art stems from a massive leak from over the summer, so feel free to click on the image above to go read more about the leaks and fan’s speculative thoughts on them.

Nick and I will talk more about this news on next week’s episode of the SWTS, so don’t forget to tune into the Star Wars Time Show on a weekly basis via our podcast platforms or via YouTube if you prefer the livestream angle.
