Kelly Marie Tran recently opened up about playing Rose Tico again in the Star Wars universe while promoting Raya the Last Dragon.

The Star Wars franchise is moving forward with several shows hitting Disney Plus and multiple films in the works for theaters. Despite all of the projects in the pipeline, the sequel trilogy era is largely absent from those plans, but given all of the upcoming projects, it’s expected that those characters will be used eventually.

Rose Tico, played by Kelly Marie Tran, famously faced backlash after Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and the character was later sidelined in The Rise of Skywalker to be in scenes with General Leia. While speaking with IGN, Tran opened up about potentially playing the character again in the future:

“I miss Rose. I maybe miss who I was when I played her. I feel like, sometimes, I don’t know that I could play her now. I feel like I’m different. I think so many times in our lifetimes, we are constantly growing and learning and, again, the realm of human experience is so limitless, you can be so many different people at one time but, when I think about Rose specifically and who I was then and how I was able to tap into certain parts of myself, I don’t know if I could play her again. I miss parts of her.”
