Here's a new inspirational quote for us all to print on posters or embroider onto pillows or just generally embody in 2018: "Live your life like Kelly Marie Tran at the Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiere."
The newest Star Wars actress was positively radiant at the movie's L.A. debut on Saturday night. Tran, the first Asian-American lead in a Star Wars' film, was overcome with emotion throughout the evening. Her exuberance was contagious, as she greeted fans and embraced her co-stars.
When The Last Jedi premieres on Friday, fans will finally be able to meet Rose Tico — Tran's character in the film — who is a mechanic for the Resistance. Last month, she reflected on her newfound stardom to Entertainment Weekly. “Growing up I watched a lot of [pop culture] and didn’t really get to see a lot of people that looked like me,” Tran said. “I think that I’m really lucky to be this person, and I get to be part of this franchise. I hope that it is a move in a better direction.”
