Genevieve O'Reilly (born 1977) played Mon Mothma in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. She was cast for her resemblance to Caroline Blakiston who portrayed the role in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. In order to capture Mothma's voice and mannerisms, O'Reilly carefully studied Blakiston's performance.

O'Reilly has also appeared in numerous TV series, such as BeastMaster, Young Lions, All Saints, The State Within, The Time of Your Life, Spooks, New Tricks, Law & Order: UK, Waking the Dead, Episodes, Midsomer Murders, The Last Weekend, and Crossing Lines.
Theatrically, O'Reilly has performed such stage roles as Olivia in Twelfth Night, Veronica in The Ugly Man, Millamant in The Way of the World, Ruth in Così, Queen Isabel in Richard II, Valerie in The Weir, Isabelle in Birdsong, Helena in Emperor and Galilean, Jennifer in The Doctor's Dilemma, and many more.
