You see him for a split second in the final scene with the Final Order and he has kind of a white beard. I can't find any reference online except Nien Nunb from ROJ.

    By the way, Nien Numb was in Rise of Skywalker too, in another such blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene.

  • I think Nien Numb has actually been in all of the last three films.

Assuming you mean this person:

Man manning the Falcon's turret

Then that is Wedge Antilles originally seen in the Original Trilogy.

    @Amy it would be odd to have a cameo and have them play a different character but I can try and find something a bit more explicit if you want. IMDb notes the character name and that usually comes from the subtitles I believe.

    @Amy, Denis Lawson as Wedge was listed in the end credits...it was such a quick scene that I made a point to actually confirm that I saw what I saw

    I actually saw him, recognized him and let out an audible gasp of excitement when I saw him in the film. My wife asked what I saw. I was giddy.
