As everyone on the planet knows, opening today is director J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unlike most movies where everyone knows all the twists and turns before opening day, Disney and Lucasfilm have done an amazing job keeping the secrets of The Force Awakens under wraps. It’s actually a small miracle they did it considering the speed at which things leak on the internet.
Knowing the cast was extremely guarded with what they would say about their characters and the film, when I attended the recent Los Angeles press day, I decided to have fun during my TV interviews. As you’ll see during my interview with Oscar Isaac – who plays Poe Dameron – we talked about his best and worst day on set, whether BB-8 is a boy or a girl, his personal ranking of the Star Wars movies, if Han or Greedo shot first, what color lightsaber would he have if he was a Jedi, and more.
Finally, while Isaac is a new addition to the cast, I’m happy to report he’s awesome in the film.
