Kelly Marie Tran’s THE LAST JEDI Chemistry Audition with John Boyega is So Darn Charming

Kelly Marie Tran’s THE LAST JEDI Chemistry Audition with John Boyega is So Darn Charming

For many who’ve already made it to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theaters, the best part of the adventure was the side quest embarked upon by John Boyega‘s Finn and franchise newcomer Rose Tico, played by Kelly Marie Tran. Now that audiences have had a chance to enjoy Tran and Boyega’s delightful back-and-forth on the big screen, Lucasfilm has released a new video that features the first time that the two actors performed together. It took place during the auditions for Rose, as Tran was called in for a chemistry test with Boyega. And as you’ll soon see, their special connection was tough to ignore from the very beginning.

In the above scene, which appears to be loosely tied into what the pair endured in the movie (perhaps dating back to an earlier draft of the script), Finn and Rose argue about whether they can trust Benicio del Toro’s character DJ to act as their codebreaker. Tran’s feisty responses to Boyega’s arguments may have been what won her the role.

After that clip, the video cuts ahead one year to find Tran entrenched on the set of the film, and her chemistry with Boyega appears to extend off the screen as well. We have no idea what they were laughing about at the end of the clips, but they are pretty adorable together even in this context.
