Felicity Jones was ‘rebellious teenager’
Felicity Jones was a "rebellious teenager" growing up.
The ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars story’ actress – who grew up in Bournville, Birmingham – admits she was a bit of a rebel in her younger years.
She told E! News: "When did I go rogue? Probably when I was growing up and I was a teenager. At times I was a bit of a rebellious teenager!"
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old actress previously admitted she thinks it is "wonderful" that young girls can look up to her character, Rebel Alliance fighter Jyn Erso.
She said: "I just feel it’s a wonderful moment that young girls get to celebrate someone like Jyn just as they did with Daisy Ridley’s Rey [in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’]. She is someone who has great humanity, she has an independent spirit and lives by her beliefs, and I think there’s something wonderful about her for a young girl to admire."
Felicity has had many great moments on the set of the science fiction movie and described it as "pure joy" seeing Stormtroopers cross the set.
She added: "Every single day, you’re focused and you’re very studious and you’re practicing your lines and then all that reverence goes out the window when you feel the pure joy of seeing the creatures.
"Obviously there’s a person inside, but when you see this creature walking across the set, you just can’t do anything but smile."
And Felicity also opened up about how she used "The Force" to secure her the part of Jyn.
She shared: "The first time I met Gareth [Edwards; the director] for the film, we had to do the whole meeting in whispers … because we were sitting in a cafe in Los Angeles and we didn’t want anyone to overhear. I thought there was a real synergy between us. I thought I got the part … I remember being very Zen about the whole process because I desperately wanted to do it. But I thought the disappointment would be so great if I didn’t get it that I kind of used ‘The Force’ to get me through."
