Posted on December 18, 2015 at 3:20 pm

Of course we all know Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca). But do some of the other cast members of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” look familiar? Here’s where you’ve seen them.

Daisy Ridley plays Rey. Here you can get a very quick glimpse of her in “Mr. Selfridge” (beige hat with green floral trim) which was broadcast in the US on PBS.

John Boyega plays Finn. He starred in the sci-fi/horror comedy “Attack the Block.”

Adam Driver plays Klyo Ren. He appears in “Girls” and earlier this year we saw him in “While We’re Young.”

Lupita Nyong’o plays Maz Kanata. She won an Oscar for her breakthrough role as Patsey in “!2 Years a Slave.”

Andy Serkis (Snoke) is the master of motion capture performance. You have not exactly seen him but you have witnessed his performances as Gollum in “The Lord of the Rings,” Caesar in “Planet of the Apes,” and Ulysses Klaue in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Here’s a rare look at him appearing as himself, with Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo in “13 Going on 30.”

Domhnall Gleeson plays General Hux. He appeared with Oscar Isaac in “Ex Machina” earlier this year and starred in “About Time.” He’s also in “The Revenant” with Leonardo DiCaprio, opening December 25, 2015.

Oscar Isaac plays Poe Dameron, appearing with his “Ex Machina” co-star Domhnall Gleeson and his “Inside Llewyn Davis” co-star Adam Driver.
