Domhnall Gleeson is set to reprise his role as First Order villain General Hux in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

However, the Irish actor has revealed that he nearly turned down the role.... because he thought the role was too big for him. 

He always thought it would make him more recognisable and famous than he would have liked.

Domhnall told the Radio Times that "Fame is the end goal for a lot of people, but it is not mine."

However, Domhnall must have changed his mind and admitted: 

"It got a little crazy for a couple of months – for a while, going out and having a drink with my friends was difficult, and then it died down."

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on December 14.
