Laura Dern Talks About Filming 'The Last Jedi' on 'The Late Show'

By: Dominic Jones

Laura Dern's character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Resistance Vice-Admiral Amilyn Holdo remains mostly shrouded in mystery.  We were introduced to the character in Vanity Fair's feature on The Last Jedi back in May and then we got another brief look at her character at the D23 Expo a couple of weeks ago, but we still know next to nothing about the character.  Dern spoke briefly about Holdo during an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where couldn't say much.  The majority of the interview focused on Dern's experience on set, meeting R2-D2 and talking about her making the blaster noises on set while shooting her scene.  She did give us one more tiny tidbit about her character, replying to Colbert's question about whether Holdo is a good guy or a bad guy, saying, "It's complicated."  Check out the video below,

Many fans have speculated that we may see some tension between Holdo and Leia, despite both of them being on the same side.  We know from The Force Awakens that there was tension between The Resistance and The New Republic, so perhaps we could see that tension brought down to an individual level between those two characters.  That would certainly make things "complicated" for the heroes.

Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th.  The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, Benicio Del Toro, and Lupita Nyong'o.
