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."
