Casting Call - Jaina Solo

The Winner for Jaina Solo is ...

Lacey Chabert

Lost In Space, Party Of Five (TV)

REQUIREMENTS

The person who plays Jaina Solo ideally needs to be able to pass for a teenager between 14 and 16. A naturally beautiful (just look at her parents), fiesty, physically fit young lady. We've got to believe that this girl could wield a light saber after all. It would also help if she was a good actress who wasn't too famous.

EXPANDED UNIVERSE FACTS

Here are some Jaina Solo facts taken from the Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia:

  • Born on Coruscant in 28 NE
  • 5 minutes older than twin brother Jacen
  • Force is equally strong with her
  • Good with mechanics like her dad
  • Attends Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 at the age of 14
  • Creates a lightsaber of violet light while studying there
  • Later trained with Mara Jade (after Mara's marriage to Luke, when Luke began moving the new Jedi Knights back to the pre-Empire style of teaching)
  • Real student of the Force (Feels that Leia doesn't take it seriously enough, as if it's a toy. Finds it difficult being around her when practicing)

DESCRIPTION

Here's a section from R.A. Salvatore's Vector Prime with an apt description of Jaina Solo:
"Jaina, sixteen years old, but with the mature and calm demeanor of a veteran pilot. Jaina looked a lot like Leia, with long dark hair and brown eyes contrasting sharply with her smooth and creamy skin. Indeed, Leia saw much of herself in the girl - no, not girl, Leia corrected her own thoughts, but woman. That same sparkle behind her brown eyes, mischievous, adventurous, determined."
