“Did you do your hair in buns on the side of your head?” the interviewer asked about Felicity‘s childhood days. “Did you have a Princess Leia hair moment?”

“I didn’t,” Felicity answered. I was a real tomboy. I always had very short hair in a very sort of like short little fringe, and I was always running around and getting really muddy and playing outside.”

“So you were Luke,” the interviewer said, to which Felicity responded “Yeah, exactly.”

“I’ve quite a large extended family and we’re all very close to each other, so actually, my brother and I, we didn’t have a VHS player,” she went on. “My family were quite sort of old-fashioned in the sense that we were always sort of having to read and do things like that. Which, obviously, in the long term you really appreciate. But when you’re six or seven, it’s a little bit frustrating.”

“So then we were going to my cousin’s house and we’d sit and watch all these delightful VHS’s and be watching things like Tremors and catching up on everything we’d missed out on,” she added. “And Star Wars was very much part of our education. I remember just distinctly sitting really – I don’t know why I was sitting so close to the television, and then cross-legged, and then looking up as the wonderful opening crawl was sliding up the screen and being really quite moved and entertained by it.”
