Someone new is entering a galaxy far, far away.
On Wednesday, Laura Dern stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her latest film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The Emmy-winning actress portrays Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo who was blatantly missing in the movie’s latest trailer. Fortunately, Dern provided fans with a fresh look at her purple-haired Resistance leader.
In the Instagram photo, the vice admiral is seen in all her violet glory while being surrounded by members of the Resistance and a BB-unit.
Although Dern remained tight-lipped about particular character details, she did tell Ellen DeGeneres what it was like working on the forthcoming Star Wars film.
“[It was] the greatest experience of my life,” Dern said, before adding, “See, I am in Star Wars! I told you guys!”
Earlier this year, we got a first look at the character in a Vanity Fair photo shoot, but this is the best and closest look yet at the vice admiral. It’s safe to say that she’s the most colorful character in the franchise!
Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo is one of several new characters who will be featured in The Last Jedi — Benicio Del Toro will play the mysterious DJ, while Kelly Marie Tran will star as Resistance mechanic Rose.
