Entertainment Weekly has done some early digging on the Star Wars newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.
A native San Diego, Tran graduated from UCLA, but has long had an infatuation with acting and performance. She started out singing in local musical theater and went on to train at three prestigious improv groups: iO West, Second City, and Upright Citizens Brigade.
And while Star Wars is undoubtedly Tran’s most prominent role yet, she has spent the last few years putting time in with a number of web series, comedic digital shorts, commercials, and occasional guest spots on various comedies (including Jimmy Kimmel Live!). She’ll next be seen in XoXo, an indie romantic comedy that Netflix will release.
