TheWrap has learned.
A representative for Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Chong has already wrapped her role, according to insiders, and while her part is small, another female face is always welcome in the "Star Wars" universe.
J.J. Abrams is directing "Star Wars: Episode VII," which hits theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
Chong, who co-starred on "24: Live Another Day," was recently cast opposite Mike Colter in Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's live-action digital feature "Halo: Nightfall."
Chong is a rising young star who recently wrapped the feature film "Stuck" with Patrick Stewart and Gary Cole, as well as the TV series "Line of Duty" and "The Wrong Mans." She previously appeared in Madonna's "W.E." and the British shows "Black Mirror," "Monroe," "Whitechapel" and "Doctor Who."
Chong is represented by Piers Nimmo Management and Thruline Entertainment, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Her casting was first reported by Latino Review.
