I spy with my little eye, something beginning with D. Yes, it's Daniel Craig dressed up as a Storm Trooper in the new Star Wars film. Ok, fine, we didn't really spy him, we were just informed by a bunch of clever people with beadier eyes than us. SPOILER: In case you're wondering, he's the one that Rey mind tricks into releasing her from Kylo Ren's torture chair. Also making covert cameos in the most talked-about movie of the century are as follows:

Ewan McGregor
The soothing voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi AKA Ewan McGregs can be heard once more saying, "Rey… these are your first steps" during her flashback sequence, after she touches Luke's lightsaber. So does this mean Obi-Wan is her father orrr?

Thomas Brodie Sangster
Blink and you'll miss it; everyone's favorite Love Actually child star delivers one iconic line before getting blown to pieces. RIP Officer Thanisson.

Bill Hader
Bill Hader teamed up with Ben Schwartz to play new droid on the block BB-8.

Frank Oz
The voice of Yoda also features in Rey's flashback sequence.

Billie Lourd
Carrie Fisher's daughter makes an appearance as a Resistance fightercalled Lieutenant Connix. With her hair in Princess Leia type buns, it's the perfect tribute to her mum.

Warrick Davis
Warrick Davis returns to a galaxy near you to play a short pink character called Wollivan. He originally starred as Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi.

Simon Pegg
Ok, not technically a cameo, but it's definitely old Peggers hiding under layers of alien fat as the junk dealing Unkar.

Jessica Henwick
Prince Oberyn's bastard daughter, Nymeria Sand, finds herself in another world, or at least the actress who plays her on Game of Thrones, Jessica Henwick, does. Cast as a Resistance pilot, Jessica can be seen skillfully navigating the skies in her X-Wing fighter.

… And pretty much everyone else who has ever been in Game of Thrones.
