ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Daisy Ridley and John Boyega are twins. Basically.

They’re both figures searching for a place to belong in the galaxy, and their mere presence in The Force Awakens – along with Guatemalan-born costar Oscar Isaac (who wasn’t available for an interview) – provides its own renewed sense of belonging in this fictional universe for fans who’ve longed to see a person of color or a woman at the fore of a Star Wars story.
“Writing this script with Larry Kasdan, I didn’t know what Rey was going to look like, I didn’t know what Finn or Poe would look like. I just knew that this movie needed to look the way the world looks,” director and co-writer J.J. Abrams tells EW.
