Laura Dern Calls Starring in 'Last Jedi' the Greatest Thing to Ever Happen!

Laura Dern paid a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday evening (August 7), and gave some insight on her role in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in which she plays Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo.

“Can you tell me anything else about Vice Admiral Holdo?” host Stephen pleaded. “I can tell you,” the 50-year-old Emmy-nominated actress said with a laugh, “I love her.”

“Is she a good guy? Is she a bad guy?” Stephen continued to insist, before Laura added “It”s complicated.”

Here’s what Laura decided to share: “To be an actor my whole life, but first, a kid who loved movies and walk on a set—costume’s ready, you’re mic’ed, you’re learning your lines, the camera’s rolling—you open your eyes to do a scene like any other work day, and it’s Star Wars? I could cry,” Laura earnestly expressed. “I thought I was going to pass out. It’s the greatest thing to ever happen to me.”
