Fan Casting 10 Popular Star Wars Expanded Universe Characters

6 of 10

6. Asa Butterfield as Anakin Solo

Asa Butterfield has these incredible big blue eyes that just bespeak innocence, which is what you want of Anakin Solo. Anakin was the Solo child who died during the war with the Yuuzhan Vong, and it affected all of his family members greatly. It may even have been a contributing factor to Jacen’s turn to the dark side. He’s the kind of character who needs to strike a chord with the audience right away, because he won’t be on-screen for long. Asa would do that job well.
