I rebel.

Actor Felicity Jones says her Rogue One: A Star Wars Story action sequences were “exhausting”.

The 32-year-old actor, who is playing Jyn Erso in the movie, said the fight scenes took “a lot of hours of practice,” reported Entertainment Weekly.

“I’m laughing now, but at the time, it was physically exhausting. It took a lot of hours of practice, and I worked with a kung fu coach, and I learned to fight, even though I never thought beating up Stormtroopers was something I’d be doing in my job.

“It came through hard work and lots of practice and rehearsals,” Jones said.

Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, Jiang Wen, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed and Ben Mendelsohn (who is oddly ignored in this trailer). It arrives on December 16.
