Benicio Del Toro’s character of “DJ” remains one of the least known, and intriguing characters from The Last Jedi.
Speaking with Empire magazine, Del Toro has added some fresh insight into the character:
“This character could come straight out of a Bob Dylan or Tom Waites song, or even a Dostoyevsky novel,” says Del Toro in the new issue of Empire. “He’s like something out of Dickens; there have been characters like him in all kinds of literature.”
“He’s like a knife: if you grab him by the blade, he’ll cut you. If you grab him by the handle, he can be very, very useful.”
Empire also give us a fresh image of the ambiguous character in this new image.
Empire’s The Last Jedi special magazine is available now from all good newsagents with two unique covers, Kylo Ren and Rey with subscribers receiving a Porg cover.
