Star Wars: The Last Jedi will feature the introduction of several new characters to a galaxy far, far away, including Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, played by Laura Dern. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Jurassic Park actress described the feeling she had when she first put on her costume:
Once in a lifetime. You’re dressed in this amazing creation that everyone put a lot of effort into, you walk on set and the camera starts to roll. You feel like an actor on a movie until you see R2-D2, and you’re like, “Wait a minute, I’m 8 years old, what’s happening? I’m pretending to be in Star Wars, but it’s real.” That’s what sets it apart from any experience I’ve ever had. I’ll never forget it.
