'Andorra' star Genevieve O'Reilly never thought she'd get a chance to grow flesh on Mon Mothma

Andorra starring Genevieve O’Reilly in in the role of Rebel Leader Mon Mothma Star Wars Galaxy Near years, but not until now she really A chance to get acquainted with the role. Either Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith deleted the scene she filmed 573 or she is in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ( Two scenes in )), O’Reilly may be in the animated series Star Wars Rebels . But that all changed when Rogue One co-writer and Andor creator Tony Gilroy let O’ Reilly was able to flesh out her Imperial Senator role once and for all as she began to form the Rebel Alliance.

For O’Reilly, Andor created an opportunity she thought would never come.

“The opportunity to explore her and study her in depth – not just as a rebel leader, but as a woman – was something I didn’t expect, and I’m excited to be a part of it,” O’Reilly told The Hollywood Reporter .

Monmouth Horse, by Caroline Blakiston in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi in the most famous line, “Many Bossas died bringing us this information,” at a meeting evaluating Jedi new Death Star weapons superior. Blakiton’s line also happens to give O’Reilly some inspiration for the new Disney+ collection.

Mon Mothma of Blakiston] With pain I can see. So I’ve always wondered what that pain is,” O’Reilly said. “So having the opportunity to discover this will hopefully inform and enhance work that already exists.” “

In a recent meeting with THR, O’Reilly also discussed Stellan Skarsgard at work and the duality of his role.

Well, it’s been a gift all along, and now it’s a meal for you. Have you ever thought you’d have a chance to really go deep like this Knowing Monmouth?

I’m not sure I did. It’s a character gift. Being able to wear Caroline Blakiston and George Lucas in ’78s, and revisiting her at different times in my life. So the opportunity to explore her and study her in depth – not just as a rebel leader, but as a woman – was something I didn’t expect, I’m so excited to be a part of it.

We can even take a look at her family life. From ?

This is awesome. I’ve always been curious about this woman. I’ve always been Having questions about her, as actors, we kind of fill in for ourselves. We might say, ‘Well, I can imagine this has happened. So, I can approach the scene like this. “I remember Caroline in that scene in Return of the Jedi and she had a very famous line that people quote me a lot, and it was, “Many bossas for Bring us this message to die for. “I’ve always thought that, at the heart and center of that moment, Caroline carried the pain I could see. So I’ve always wondered what that pain was. What was that? What was that woman carrying? Being that Leader, what did this woman cost? What was the personal cost? So the opportunity to find out that this will hopefully inform and uplift the work that already exists. It feels really weird because it’s a bit backwards, but because I know we’re going Where, I feel like I can be curious in a very specific way.

In episode 4, your scene in the gallery with Stellen Skarsgard Stunning. Do you enjoy playing her performance in the show?

First of all, yes. ster Ran is just a special person and a very good actor. It was a real treat to work with him and that scene you’re talking about in the gallery is probably the first time we’ve seen Mon Mothma this season. It’s perfectly set I think what we’re trying to do with Mon Mothma is to meet the public and reveal the private women in it. That beautiful gallery set by Luke Hull also mirrors what’s going on in the scene. You go into a very public The space and then you go back to a corner and we have a private interaction. So it’s both within the space and it’s play and creativity between me and Stellan and it feels really energizing. It’s great to play. This is what actors look for; actors look for private moments in a character to reveal.

You are in the initial casting process Remember what? Did you have to perform the above “many Bosa people die” stage just out of curiosity? word?

I definitely didn’t do that, thank goodness. (laughs.) I really screwed up, I’ll never get this role. But actually, I remember it well. They gave me a scene to audition, and I remember watching that scene and letting it go because I didn’t think about it too much. I don’t want to just go in and try to nod to [Caroline Blakiston]. I remember it was a good audition, and after I got the part, I went back and really looked into that [existing] scene.

As the season unfolds, we’ll see the inherent cost of her duality ?

Yes. We know her. We know that her ideals make her dignified and supported. We know she’s a truth teller. We saw her trying to make a change from within the empire, and we saw that it was a very lonely experience. Few were willing to stand with her against Palpatine, against this collective oppression. We see her trying to navigate herself and find an exit route to be more efficient and try to be part of the change. And I think it’s fair to say that not all of these options are black and white.
