Nick Blood is UK based and a man resembling him has been spotted acting in a scene with Diego Luna on the Cleveleys set. In the scene, the man is waiting for Cassian by the shore. When Cassian arrives, they talk for a bit, leading to Cassian giving the man a blaster. Then they bro hug and the man leaves.
