The musical sisters, Lika and Thea Shengelaia aka The Healer Twins, revealed a two weeks ago that they were on the Abu Dhabi set for Star Wars Episode VII for four days. Thea recently spoke with the website Albawaba about their experience on the set.
She told them,
"We went to the Abu Dhabi desert two weeks ago, and Lika and I were given the same special costumes and make-up to wear. Apparently they had spent four months preparing the sets. It was quite exciting. We were outdoors in the middle of the desert, and there were two main actors there for shooting – John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. But we didn’t have lines, just reaction shots. I can’t talk about the nature of the scene though!"
In addition, she spoke about meeting director JJ Abrams,
"He was there, and he came to talk to Lika and I because he really liked what we were wearing. He asked us our names and said who he was – as if we hadn’t guessed!"
Now the question is, what were John Boyega and/or Daisey Ridley doing that caused the reaction shots of the Healer Twins? I guess we'll have to wait until December 18, 2015 to find out!
