Keri Russell Says She Cried When She Read The Script For 'The Rise Of Skywalker'

By: Dominic Jones

One of the new characters we'll be meeting for the first time in December's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the mysterious Zorri Bliss, played by Felicity and The Americans star Keri Russell.  The actress spoke recently with The Associated Press about the film, and though she couldn't reveal much about her character or the plot, she did share her reaction to reading the script by director JJ Abrams and co-writer Chris Terrio.

She recalled, "When I read his script that he wrote I cried. I mean who knows what it will turn out to be and I hope it remains true to what he originally wanted."

Our only official look at Zorri came in the Vanity Fair portrait, shot by Annie Leibovitz, that was released earlier this month.  Her costume is purple, with several weapons and utility belts and a large silver helmet with a black visor.  Russell shared her reaction to the costume, and specifically the helmet, in her interview with The AP, saying, "I was like, 'That is my dream job. I can see everyone. No one can see me. Hello. Amazing!"

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th, 2019.  The film is directed by JJ Abrams, with a script by Abrams and Chris Terio, and stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Kelly Marie Tran, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, Naomi Ackie, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Joonas Suotamo, and Carrie Fisher.
