'Rogue One': Felicity Jones Reveals Surprising Jyn Erso Inspiration

Felicity Jones is opening up about her inspirations while preparing to play Jyn Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

“Going back to Sigourney Weaver in Alien, there’s a great tradition of wonderful leading female heroes,” the 33-year-old actress revealed to the BBC.

Beyonce is one of those women who has enormous power but is also not a diva,” Felicity added. “She doesn’t seem precious, and so she was definitely an inspiration for Jyn.”
