Kelly Marie Tran Hears People At Another Table Discussing The Last Jedi Over Dinner
This is just too good not to share. I think Kelly Marie Tran is a breath of fresh air to the saga just as Rey, Finn, and Poe were. Read her post and watch the video, good stuff.
A few days ago, I was at a pub eating pie with a friend, when this DELIGHTFUL group of people came in. They sat down at the table next to me and started discussing The Last Jedi ó in minute detail. My friend started filming as I listened, and she captured my reaction as they discussed Rose. 😭🌹 After lots of creepy listening ó and eating 🥧😬 ó I awkwardly walked over to introduce myself. They couldnít be more lovely. What an incredible moment in a string of incredible moments Iíve been experiencing lately. ❤️ In my 8 years as a struggling actor, I came to the realization that the hardest thing to obtain from another human being is their genuine interest. Sometimes, getting someone to listen to your story ó your idea ó is really hard. Itís pretty impossible for a movie to get made, and there are many stories that donít make it into a book or a film or a television show. I know how lucky I am to be a part of something that people love, to be able to act and tell stories at all. And one of my greatest joys has been creepily listening to conversations about TLJ when Iím out and about. 😬🤓 Regardless of opinion or preference, itís still a topic of discussion. And no matter who we are, no matter where weíre from, if we can really listen and have a conversation about something ó anything ó it can really open up a door. It can open us up to new ideas and new understanding. So thanks, wonderful people, for watching and dissecting and discussing. It makes me happy to know that we made something thatís starting a dialogue. My heart is so full, and my goals are so clear. Letís tell more stories. Letís have more conversations. Letís get to know lives and worlds different from our own. And most of all ó letís open our hearts and accept our differences. More love, less hate. Also, more pies, because THEY ARE AMAZING. 🥧❤️💁🏻🙃 PS @catmahoney87 ó thanks for not thinking it was creepy when I went through my insta tags to find this photo so I could write about this moment. 😂❤️
