A few people seem to be responding very badly to a certain character from Star Wars: The Last Jedi- Rose Tico.
Recently, the Star Wars Facebook page posted a video of Kelly Marie Tran’s audition. A few haters said that she was “the most useless character ever” after Jar-Jar Binks. And this is how the official page responded:
“Prevented four Resistance deserters from stealing escape pods.”
“Assisted in the formation of a plan that would’ve allowed the Resistance to escape the First Order pursuit. Persuaded a fathier stableboy to enable her and Finn’s escape from Canto Bight. Conducted an essential survey of available supplies available to the Resistance on Crait. Saved Finn from an inconsequential course of action that would’ve ended his life. For a character who did absolutely nothing, that’s impressive… most impressive.”
Mostly Star Wars fans have had positive responses towards Rose.
“Just the fact that people- I mean I’ve never been recognized on the street or at the gym or in the grocery store at all, but when I come to events like this with the rest of the cast, people know that I’m associated with this thing that they love so much.” Tran said.
“The amount of support that I’ve gotten from people, even though they haven’t seen me do anything, it means a lot and it makes me emotional thinking about it.”
” Mark Hamill and I have kind of talked about that and just how incredible it is to have people love something so much and then to be a part of it. I can’t even describe it.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now showing in theatres.
