(It would be amusing of Sally played Luke, since this would fit the brother-and-sister thing. But it seems unlikely when there's so many other characters she could play.)
I initially thought so as well, but since Leia, R2 and C3PO are important characters straight from the beginning, her being a PC from the start is not improbable.
