Casey Calvert Joins 'Empire' Lineup

LOS ANGELES—Axel Braun announces Casey Calvert as the latest addition to the cast list of his megaproduction The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, currently seeking to be crowdfunded through an campaign.

The character Calvert has been slated to play is one who did not appear in the original film but will be familiar to readers of Star Wars literature, according to Braun. That character is Tendra Risant Calrissian, the wife of Cloud City administrator Lando Calrissian.

"We are very lucky and grateful to have Casey on board," Braun said. "She is not only a fantastic performer, but also an extremely intelligent woman who will infuse her role with so much more than her obvious stunning looks."

Concerning said role, Braun noted, "Although Tendra was not part of the original movie, our script features her in an important role that sheds some light on Han and Lando's relationship."

Commented Calvert, "I'm thrilled to be a part of the groundbreaking venture that is The Empire Strikes Back XXX. I love working for Axel and Eli Cross, and I'm very excited to play Tendra. I can't wait to be the first live portrayal of the character. From now on when Star Wars fans think of Tendra, they'll picture me!"

A BDSM & Fetish expert for adult e-tailer and winner of the 2015 XRCO Unsung Siren award, Casey Calvert previously worked under Braun in Spider-Man XXX 2: An Axel Braun Parody, in which she portrayed another geek culture character for the first time on screen, namely Power Girl, aka Jessica Jones—preceding Krysten Ritter's inhabitance of the role in Netflix's Jessica Jones.
