Watch How Kellie Marie Tran Became Rose In New ‘The Last Jedi’ Featurette

The Star Wars YouTube channel has released a new featurette for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it provides a look at Kellie Marie Tran’s journey in becoming Rose Tico – Resistance mechanic extraordinaire.

The video shows off Tran’s audition, which consisted of a read with John Boyega, which was done to test the chemistry with the actor. It then shifts into shots from the set during the filming of the movie, and ultimately shows off more than a few finished shots from the film. If anything, this video shows how special of a person Kellie Marie Tran is, and how much her role as Rose has already changed her life.

Head on up above to see Kellie become Rose!
