Kelly is sooo charismatic! I was worried about some of the stupid fan reaction when she was just announced, but really, I think all the audiences will love her!

Plus we get to have an actress that is funny and witty in SW again. Carrie is Carrie and she's irreplaceable, but it's cool to have a fun female character again, and a fun actress in Star Wars!

She is! I'm surprised that she actually went out and had fun with the crowds. Rian really nailed it by choosing her, especially that she was a Youtuber before and that she apparently went against people like Anna Kendrick and Gina Rodriguez in the auditioning process. She's going to do great.

I couldn't find the recent post about LF potentially bringing in other You Tube personalities to audition, but had a recent memory jogged. We know that RJ has worked with and is friends with John Dardanelle of the Mountain Goats, including the recent goof song released when The Last Jedi was announced as the title. MG and Dardanelle have ties via to John Green of the Vlog Brothers. Including their 2013 Carnegie Hall event, where it was a mix of writers like Neil Gaiman, Dardanelle & the MGs, and several high profile YouTube personalities. Not saying that Johnson was directly involved (he wasn't), just that if he associates with people with ties to that world, then likely it was on his radar/awareness

So Rose Tico is the character's full name.

Not quite what I expected, I must admit... Somehow, I was expecting a short surname, but I'm not sure if "Rose Tico" sounds Star Warsy to me yet. I'll get used to it, though Wink It just sounds... different? Which I suppose is a good thing?

Well I think it's not a tongue-breaker. That would be a good thing for the worldwide audience. But then how to pronounce it.
I'm sticking with "tee-ko" until I hear otherwise.

I think I realised what makes it "un-Star Warsy" to me. In SW, I'd expect the name to be spelled something like Rose Teeko. Razz

Isn't Tico a name linked to Costa Ricans?

@panki Costa Rica (been there 2x) was my first thought, she's a Tican. Not a bad planet to come from.

@panki

Yup, it's how Costa Ricans refer to themselves, and how the rest of us non-Costa Rican Latin Americans refer to them. It's very cute, I thought of it right away when I heard Rose's surname. ^^

@BenRey

I know, right? They had several opportunities - Michelle Yeoh, Gong Li, Zhang Ziyi, Constance Vu, just a name a few, but nope.

KMT is breaking barriers already, just like we were told.

@BenRey

And she's in such a little corner... Neutral

It's great that she's breaking barriers, but I wish those barriers were not there. I mean, really, such a huge part of the population in the West, and in the Americas is composed of Asian descendents. Why do they have to be left out?

There are so many gorgeous, super talented actresses, and , yeah. At least Sw is - finally - taken a step on the right direction.

So... anyone hoping Rose and Paige might make an appearance in Forces of Destiny? Maybe see them have sister moments and go on a little adventure at the Resistance base? What does everyone expect Rose and Paige's relationship to be like?

@AppleCrumble122

I hadn't thought of that, but I love that idea!

Given the fact that Paige is older and that Veronica Ngo is so conventionally gorgeous and a gunner, while Rose works in maintenance and is more quirky-cute, the expected sister relationship trope would be for Rose to feel inferior to her "golden child" sister and perhaps have a bit of a rivalry/jealousy thing going there (like Jan towards Marcia)...but I fully expect Rose to come into her own over her arc in TLJ.

@ISeeAnIsland

Maybe the Resistance runs out of fuel for the ships and they could go on a little adventure to find some. Maybe in D'Qar's Jungle and get caught up in a Bounty Hunter's trap or by some wild animals, and have to come up with a plan to escape. Or maybe they fly to the nearest Space Petrol station and have to escape the FO. Wink This would explain why they aren't in TFA lol!

Oh I really hope this too! I think @nonesuch suggested this in a recent SH episode and that she goes on an adventure with Finn in order to prove herself that she can handle missions. Maybe they lost their parents to the FO, so Paige is sort of the "over protective" older sister and doesn't allow Rose to go on a mission out of fear that something might happen to her? And this, along with Rose feeling inferior to her, frustrates her. It is cliche, but far better than Paige being killed off!

Nothing new in this interview, but Kelly is just so loveable:



Did we already see this old interview?? I can't remember. But then, I don't seem to remember anything these days. Anyway, interesting non-answers about romance.
