Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who plays L3-37 in the Solo movie, was on the Graham Norton show and talked a bit about her audition for the role. It turns out that a) she had never seen a Star Wars movie before (which David Tennant who’s also a guest finds incredible) and b) didn’t even know what a droid is until she found out in the audition that a droid is some kind of “robot”. But still, she won the audition. Check out the clip! It’s really fun the way she tells it. Oh, and please don’t get too distracted by Phoebe’s dress!
Following the world premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the first reactions to the film have begun to show up online. Unsurprisingly, Donald Glover’s portrayal of Lando received universal praise from the attendees who have shared their thoughts so far. Several attendees also praised Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s performance as L3. But what about Han Solo? The early word of mouth is largely positive, although some admitted that it takes time for Alden to find his footing and for your brain to adjust to seeing someone besides Harrison Ford play Han Solo. The most common takeaway from these early reactions seems to be that this film is fun first and foremost. Premiere reactions are almost always universally positive, so as usual take them with a grain of salt. Head over to Nerdist to read through the early reactions yourself!
