Flashdance star Jennifer Beals defined how safety round The Book of Boba Fett was so tight, she did not even know which Star Wars present she was in.
There are only a few individuals who knew Flashdance and The L Word star Jennifer Beals was set to look in Star Wars collection The Book of Boba Fett, and even the actress herself wasn’t certain what she was collaborating in when she was prepared to start filming. With the collection now simply over every week away, Beals has been in a position to reveal just a bit extra about her look within the present and the way for her there have been a number of non secular connections concerned in starring within the spin-off collection from The Mandalorian.
The plot for The Book of Boba Fett is still as guarded a secret as they arrive, and subsequently Beals may solely discuss a lot about her function within the collection, however she did clarify in an interview with Variety that coming into franchise was particular due to the workforce behind the present, which incorporates Jon Favreau and Robert Rodriguez.
“I had worked with both Jon and Robert many, many years ago. Jon and I were both in “Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle,” and Robert, I labored with on “Four Rooms.” And knew him from that circle of mates with Quentin [Tarantino] and my ex-husband, Alex Rockwell. But it’d been a long time since I’d seen them.”
The actress was requested concerning the character she performs, which has been revealed in short pictures to this point however with out a lot in the best way of context, and once more was joyful to elucidate about that well-known secrecy that surrounds the largest Disney-owned IPs. Having been supplied a job in a Star Wars challenge, it appears that evidently even the actress wasn’t actually conscious what she was collaborating in till she was prepared to start out filming.
“I mean, I knew about the character. But this is how good they are at the lockdown of secrets: Even when I first stepped onto the set, I didn’t realize that I was in “The Book of Boba Fett.” I simply knew that I used to be attending to be a part of this story.”
However, it appears that evidently regardless of going into the function principally blind, Beals did have some help when it got here to being reminded of what a Twi’lek is within the Star Wars Universe. “I had to be reminded of what that was and who they are and where they’re from. Dave Filoni is just extraordinary. He’s like a walking encyclopedia. Instead of relying on the internet — which, you know, I don’t know who the authors are of certain articles that I’m looking at — I would go to the source. I would go to Dave, and we would talk about character and how is this person different perhaps than the lineage that’s come before, and what has informed her experiences and then how does that change the way she looks or behaves — or dresses for that matter.”
Robert Rodriguez not too long ago confirmed trailers for The Book of Boba Fett only contain footage from the opening half of the pilot episode, and subsequently Beals’ Twi’lek character is simply one of many many surprises to return as we uncover how she suits with the story of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand. While Beals wouldn’t disclose an excessive amount of, when pressed she did reply to a query of whether or not her character was “one of stature”, by saying it was “a fair way to summarize” her function. For any greater than that, we’re simply going to have to attend till The Book of Boba Fett is launched on Disney+ on December twenty ninth.
