Our series of interviews From Different Points of View highlights Star Wars fans from across the world and allows them to tell you about Star Wars fandom from their point of view, how it has influenced their lives and the direction it has taken them.
This week’s different point of view is from the United States Of America, and it is Angela.
When did your love of Star Wars begin and what was it that drew you to it?
How has Star Wars influenced you?
I have tried hard to follow a light side philosophy in everyday life. It’s not an easy road, but there’s enough darkness in the world already.
What is your most memorable Star Wars moment?
At SWCC I gave Anthony Daniels a little container of a purple glitter blend I made with a friend. We made it in memory of Carrie Fisher.
How do you celebrate your fandom, do you for example collect anything, cosplay or have a tattoo?
I have some vintage action figures, most of them since childhood. I just cosplayed for the first time at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. It didn’t go over as well as I would have liked.
What’s the best part of being a member of Star Wars communities?
What are your next plans for Star Wars?
I plan to go to SWC Anaheim!
What are you looking forward to from Lucasfilm Ltd and Star Wars in the future?
I hope there will be more video games developed. I’d like to try them.
Is there anything that hasn’t happened yet in Star Wars that you would like to see happen?
