“I think it’s beautifully subversive,” Dern says of Holdo’s military glamour. “From the director to the producers, everyone was painstaking about not only the look, but even the exact color of hair, what it should be and trying different versions. And all I know is I think it’s so cool. I love the way she looks. I want to be Holdo for Halloween.”
Entertainment Weekly is back with their latests news dump for The Last Jedi. The cover reveal story sheds some light on Laura Dern’s Amilyn Holdo and her role in the Resistance; The obligatory gallery features several new quotes and photos.
