Former Star Wars Actor Keira Knightley on Returning as Sabé in Cassian Andor Series

In case you missed it, there have been speculations that Padmé Amidala's handmaiden Sabé could play an important role in the upcoming Cassian Andor series. But what are the chances that Keira Knightley would actually reprise her role from the Star Wars prequel trilogy films? The Pirates of the Caribbean star has finally spoken up about returning to the Star Wars Universe.

Knightley recently spoke to where she reminisced about playing Padme. No, wait, who did she play again?

"Was I not Padmé?" Knightley asked before remembering her character's name. "Oh, I was Sabé. You know, I saw the film once when it came out. I think I was 12 when I did it, and it came out, and I saw it the year after, and I've never seen it again."

Interestingly, Knightley isn't even aware of what happened to her character after what happened in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. "So I played Sabé, and she didn't die? I hope she lived a long and happy life somewhere on a planet far, far away. I'm sure she did," she said.

Well, it's safe to say that Sabe did pretty well for herself especially judging from what happened in the books Queen's Peril and Queen's Shadow as well as the recent Darth Vader comic books. But what are the chances that Knightley would consider playing Sabe again, possibly in the Cassian Andor series?

"Reprising the character I can't even remember the name of?" she asked. "No, there hasn't. There hasn't. There should be, though. I'm sure her life has been long and interesting. But no, no, there's been no discussion."

Of course, fans are hoping that Knightley might be playing coy about the role. On the other hand, Sabe's appearance in the Disney+ show has not yet been confirmed so we'll take her word for it, at least for now.

Do you think Knightley should return as Sabe? Sound off in the comments below.
