Newly released details regarding ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ villain Enfys Nest have surfaced. It seems we can add another badass female to the ranks to join Captain Phasma, as a source has claimed Enfys Nest is a female villain. The source said:
“Enfys Nest is a female. It is not a big role, but it is important. She (the actress) worked closely with Woody Harrelson. She is signed for two more movies, presumably Solo sequels.”
It appears this information may very well be accurate, we were given may very well be correct, as it appears to have been confirmed through French merchandise for the movie in the Tweet below:

This Tweet translates to:
“Enfys Nest, an extremely dangerous marauder, has quickly forged an infamous reputation for herself and her gang of pirates – the Cloud Riders.”
Rumors that Nest will be played by actress Lily Newmark (who listed on the IMDB page for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’) are starting to sprout up, but this has yet to be confirmed.
Despite Nest’s imposing appearance, it has been said that she is not the central antagonist of the film. Instead, she’s only the villain for part of the movie. It seems like all her scenes take place on the same planet – one part of which has a warm, beach/desert climate, and the other which has a lot of snowy mountains. It should be noted that Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett appears to be wearing the same outfit in the trailer scene recruiting Han as when he’s on the railway facing off with Enfys Nest.
While nothing has been confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm, signs do seem to point toward a female villain, which would be cool. Stay tuned for more updates on ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ as they become available!
