STAR WARS: Laura Dern Says Her Character Can “Mislead The Heroes”

Not much at all is known about Laura Dern’s Vice Admiral Holdo, but she’s cryptically hinted a new interview that her status as one of the ‘goodies’ is not definite. “The new people will either be leading or misleading the heroes,” is all she told Time.So will Holdo be one of the “misleaders”? We still have a few weeks to wait yet. She did tease: “[Producer] Kathleen Kennedy’s mantra is ‘strong female characters’.” Dern also revealed that she burst into tears on her first day on set.

“I got ready for my first scene. And when they called ‘action,’ I opened my eyes and I saw C-3PO and started to cry,” she recalled. “When I was a kid, my dad [Bruce Dern] told me about these two characters they were making for this next movie. So it just feels like it’s come full circle, to be in the company of these characters that I heard about and then grew to love.

“I felt like I was actually waking up in my childhood fantasy.” A new TV spot for the film was released today, appearing to disprove the idea that Rey turns to the Dark Side.

Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren and Finn also feature prominently.
