Keri Russell Says 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Is 'Unlike Any Other Movie'

Keri Russell keeps it chic while striking for a pose at the Mark Cross Flagship Grand Opening Celebration held on Thursday (December 12) in New York City.

That same evening, the 43-year-old actress made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and dished about starring in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

“It’s so fun. The movie, it’s unlike any other movie,” Keri expressed. “The second you hear that music.. it’s just ‘oh my gosh’!”

“I think this character and my enjoyment in this character, wearing a helmet, is directly equivalent with my ambition in this business,” Keri added about her character Zorii Bliss. “Most people would be like, ‘I want my face to show in Star Wars‘, but this is like perfect for me! This is exactly the level I want to be in Star Wars.”

Keri Russell also talked about watching Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with her love Matthew Rhys and her long history of working with director J.J. Abrams.
