Ellen Page Played Han Solo in 'Empire Strikes Back' Live-Read
Ellen Page keeps her look casual after hitting up the gym on Wednesday afternoon (December 17) in Los Angeles.
Recently it was announced that the 27-year-old actress would be starring as Han Solo in a live stage-reading of The Empire Strikes Back directed by Jason Reitman, which took place this week.
“In casting Han, the most important thing is: Who has the most interesting, ironic approach to life? And when I think of that, I think of Ellen Page,” Jason told Entertainment Weekly. “She’s a small human being who has the energy to fill Madison Square Garden.”
Ellen starred opposite Jessica Alba, who took on the role of Princes Leia.
“For Leia, I just wanted to find an actress who was beautiful and also had the ability to be tough and funny, and I’ve seen Alba do all of that. And I needed somebody who would have chemistry with Ellen.”
