Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Korr Sella from The Force Awakens, recently discussed her time on the first of the sequel trilogy, chatting about her very first day on a film set that included a scene with none other than Carrie Fisher.

“My first-ever on-camera experience was a scene with Carrie Fisher. I had no idea what I was doing. I had never been on a set before. I had only done theater up until that point. It was an overwhelming but amazing baptism by fire. It turned what could have been a painful experience into a really positive one, a learning experience.”

“She was the most gentle, sweet, down to earth, I walked on set and she just beamed at me and she said, ‘We’ve got this.’ I was like, ‘This is my first time.’ And she was just so kind and generous and just ended up making it into such a pleasurable experience, what could have been a really intimidating experience. And then afterwards, I went to her trailer to say thank you and she was like, ‘Come in.’ I sat with her, and we had a chat. And she was just so open and just so willing to share. I was there for two days. She didn’t have to be like that with technically a day player.”

Korr was a character trimmed for time, but who did see more exploration in Bloodline. Perhaps as we delve into the history of that era there will be more to come from her.
