Behind the scenesEdit
Rose Tico will be portrayed by Kelly Marie Tran in the 2017 upcoming Star Wars film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. Tran's casting in the film was first announced on February 15, 2016. The first photo of Rose was released during The Last Jedi panel at Celebration Orlando on April 15, 2017. Rose's surname of Tico was revealed by Vanity Fair on May 23, 2017.
Tran had never seen a Star Wars movie until she got the part: she was more of a fan of other series like The Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter. She attributes the fact she landed the part to this oversight, explaining "I didn't have this expectation of what I thought this person should be like; I wasn't trying to model her after someone I'd seen in a movie."
