ACTOR APPRECIATION

WAIT, I RECOGNIZE HER...

If you grew up in the early 2000s, you've probably seen Rosario Dawson before. Theater kid? She was Mimi in Rent. Men in Black fan? She was Laura Vasquez. Josie and a Pussy Cats enthusiast? She was Valerie Brown. To celebrate her new role in a galaxy far, far away, let's take a look at Rosario Dawson's career over the years.

SHE IS NO JEDI

“It’s changing me" Rosario Dawson said about her experience portraying Ahsoka. “So often, I take pieces from a character, and then I inject so much of myself into things of my own experience and what I have to draw from. But this is absolutely going in the other direction, and she is so influencing me. It’s just been so powerful to be on that journey, to be taken along with it; it’s not something I could have hoped for, or dreamed of, so it’s really out of this world.” (Variety, ‘Ahsoka’ Trailer)
