We've seen the pilots, the generals and the main heroes of both the Rebel Alliance and the later born Resistance, but now Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi bring us an even more relatable hero for cinemas audiences and especially female fans to enjoy, with Rose Tico, as played by Kelly Marie Tran. Rose is a hard working, reliable and spiky mechanic/technician (with a more respected sister also a fellow Resistance member: a gunner and pilot working alongside Poe Dameron) whom we discover has a touch of the hero worship complex for the recently joined Resistance fighter Finn, unaware that he hasn't really gotten used to his status as 'Hero' with the destruction of Starkiller Base quite yet and finds his new friend's interest unnerving at first, to say the least!
|Together on Canto Bight, for EPISODE VIII.|
Supposedly after an awkward start, the two are sent on an away mission into the heart of First Order territory for a sequence that will see them cement their friendship and respect for each other whilst undercover, and have an explosive experience within the bizarre decadence of the Canto Bight gambling resort, all of which looks very STAR WARS meets James Bond visually experimental in its glamour, aliens and action, as revealed so far in behind the scenes footage.
Offscreen bubbly and clearly loving being a part of the STAR WARS universe, AFICIONADO sends out its best wishes and success to Miss Tran for EPISODE VIII and beyond.
