Newcomer will play Rose, a Resistance mechanic in 'The Last Jedi.'
At long last! We get a first official look at Kelly Marie Tran in Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
On Friday, at this year's Star Wars Celebration gathering in Orlando, fans met Ms. Tran along with the rest of the Last Jedi stars and got some basic details about the newcomer's character in the highly-anticipated next installment of the Star Wars saga — and she apparently has the "biggest new part" in Episode VIII.
"My character's name is Rose," Tran revealed during Friday's Last Jedi panel. "She's part of the Resistance, and she works in maintenance. I can't wait for you to meet her."
