We all know that Florence Welch can sing — but can she act as well? According to a recent story in the Sun, Florence + the Machine‘s dynamic frontwoman is being considered for a “major part” in the upcoming ‘Star Wars’ trilogy.

“She has done some acting but it was her singing on stage that initially caught the eye,” a source said. “Almost every actress in Hollywood wants a role in the new movies but we are keen to cast people who are unexpected. Florence is being considered for a major part that would turn her into an A-list actress overnight.”

“We think Florence has the exact style we are looking for,” a ‘Star Wars’ insider reported.

Directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by George Lucas’ Lucasfilm, ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ is slated for a summer 2015 release.  A number of original cast members, including Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, are all expected to appear in the new trilogy.
