Riz Ahmed thought he ‘totally screwed up’ his Rogue One audition(ssss).
ET has an exclusive look at one of the many bonus features on the home release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story -- Ahmed’s audition tapes!
In his quest to land the role of Bodhi Rook, Ahmed e-mailed director Gareth Edwards an influx of auditions (14 to be exact), demonstrating a variety of takes he had on the character, as you’ll see from the borderline comical amount of costume changes in the clip.
"I sent him like two or three versions of it," Ahmed told ET last month, “I woke up the next morning and I hadn't gotten an e-mail back so I thought, 'Why don't I send him another two or three more versions of it!' and then I kind of thought, 'Oh you know what? Maybe if he had a different accent or different costumes.' so I did that again, and I sent him 14 takes of this character over like, two or three days. I was spamming quite hardcore, to be honest, and I'm just really grateful he didn't take out a restraining order."
“He kind of e-mailed me back and said, 'Look, Riz, thank you for the auditions, please stop sending me the auditions. We'll be in touch.' I was like, 'Oh, well done you screwed up! You screwed up just by being a psycho!’”
Fans can bring home Rogue One: A Star Wars Story early on Mar. 24 on Digital HD, and on Blu-ray Apr. 4.
