On Tuesday, Twin Peaks star Laura Dern popped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and despite telling the host that she can say “absolutely nothing” about the film, she shared a new picture of herself as the purple-haired Resistance leader Amilyn Holdo, which she also posted on Instagram. See below.
Though she was unable to provide any further insight on the film, she did share a nice anecdote from set, describing how director Rian Johnson had discovered in the editing room that she had been making “pew pew” noises while filming with a weapon.
“Rian Johnson keeps telling this really embarassing story about how when he got in the editing room – and I do have weaponry in a scene, I have said that – he literally heard me making sounds, because I had only done it in my room in childhood. And, on camera you hear me going “‘pew, pew pew'”, she said.
“I was so excited to be there, that I really did think I was at play”. Check out the clip below.
She also described making the film as the “greatest experience” of her life.
