Last Jedi to send Carrie Fisher off in an amazing way: Boyega
It seems like Princess Leia will get the sendoff she deserves. According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Boyega (right), the star of Last Jedi, said that his Star Wars cast mate, the late Carrie Fisher (above), would appear on screen for the final time in a perfect manner.
Boyega, while speaking in an interview, noted, “This movie, it sends her off in an amazing, amazing way. And she is still kept alive in this franchise. That’s the beauty of it: she lives forever in a sense.” The actor said that when he learned of Fisher’s death last December, “it was a strange, strange feeling. I felt like everyone in the cast went silent for a bit after that.” He added that Leia and Finn (their characters) have many scenes together in this Star Wars installment. Before Fisher’s death in December, Leia was expected to have a role in 2019’s Episode IX.
