Kelly Marie Tran on playing Rose Tico again: “I don’t know that I could play her now”

Speaking with Cissy Jones, Kelly Marie Tran walks through her career so far to discuss Raya and the Last Dragon and much more besides, and inevitably touches upon Star Wars and Rose Tico, a character she’s not sure she could play again.

“I miss Rose. I maybe miss who I was when I played her. I feel like, sometimes, I don’t know that I could play her now. I feel like I’m different.

“I think so many times in our lifetimes, we are constantly growing and learning and, again, the realm of human experience is so limitless, you can be so many different people at one time, but when I think about Rose specifically and who I was then and how I was able to tap into certain parts of myself, I don’t know if I could play her again. I miss parts of her.”
