Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ star Felicity Jones recently revealed the mantra that helped shape the actor’s portrayal of rebellion leader Jyn Erso in the upcoming movie.
In an interview with E! Online, the 33-year-old, whose favourite track is Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) by Beyonce, shared that she often found herself watching the singer’s Lemonade to prepare for the role.
“I think she’s someone who has incredible power and is devoted to what she does, but she also seems like a very nice person,” she said of the 35-year-old singer, adding, “I think that’s very important to emulate.”
To Jones’ surprise, training for the role was not as difficult as she had imagined.
“It was just pure dedication,” she said.
“I worked really closely with the stunt team, who were just the loveliest group of people. They really held my hand through it, actually, and made it very, very easy and straightforward. We just practised a hell lot of rehearsal,” she explained.
Also starring Diego Luno, Mads Mikkelson, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker and many more, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is slated for a December 16 release.
