‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Star Lana Condor Almost Played Rose Tico In ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

X-Men: Apocalypse star Lana Condor revealed in an interview that she almost played Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi instead of Kelly Marie Tran.

Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico was introduced in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and has become one of the most controversial characters in the franchise. Unfortunately, The Last Jedi‘s Kelly Marie Tran left social media because of this, but she did return as Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Like any role in Star Wars, many young actresses were up for Rose Tico, including Lana Condor.

Lana Condor is got her start in Hollywood for playing Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse. Lana Condor’s stardom continues to rise after appearing in Netflix’s To All The Boys films opposite Noah Centineo. In a recent interview with Style Caster, Lana Condor revealed that she was up for the Rose Tico role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi:

“This was before The Force Awakens came out, and they were already reading for the sequel. He was eating Sugarfish, and I had a meeting to just get to know him. I remember looking at him and being like, ‘He has no idea what’s about to happen to his life. He is going to be the lead in Star Wars. That is so cool.’ And then he blew up overnight. Had I done Star Wars, I wouldn’t have been able to do To All the Boys, so that’s an example of one door closes and another opens.”

Do you think Lana Condor would’ve been a good Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Would you like to see Lana Condor in a future Star Wars project? Sound-off in the comments below!
