Dan Brooks from StarWars.com chatted with Erin Kellyman, the very talented actress who played scene stealer and all around badass, Enfys Nest in Solo: A Star Wars Story. You can read the full interview HERE, but in the meantime, here's a short excerpt where she talks about that amazing costume and getting to ride a swoop bike!
StarWars.com: What did you think when you first saw the costume? And when you put it on for the first time — what was that moment like?
Erin Kellyman: When I saw the costume was another time that it really started to sink in. I had to walk past some stormtrooper costumes to get to where mine was, so that was pretty cool to see!
The first time I put the costume on was unreal. I’ve never played a character that wasn’t set in the year [the project] was made, so I had no clue what to expect. But it was amazing, I felt like a proper warrior.
StarWars.com: What can you tell us about the shoot? Is that you on the swoop bike?
Erin Kellyman: That was me on the swoop bike! That was all done on a blue screen and we were on a rig that controlled the movements. I also did all of the stunts with the mask off, other than the big jump, I only did half of that. That was split into two because it was so high, so my stunt double, Casey Michaels, is seen from behind, jumping from the top onto a green box, and then I did the jump from the green box to the floor.
You can see Erin and all the rest of the Cloud Riders in Solo: A Star Wars Story which is now available on all formats!
