During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Felicity Jones gave some detail on the reshoots for Star Wars: Rogue One, which added an extra $30 million to the film’s production budget.
On the Rogue One reshoots: “Obviously when you come to the edit, you see the film come together and you think, ‘Actually, we could do this better, and this would make more sense if we did this’. I’ve done it so many times. I mean, you wouldn’t just give your first draft on this story, would you?”
On playing Jyn Erso: “So much of Jyn is movement. It became a very important part of finding her. She walks almost a bit like a caged animal. Her fight sequences become like dances.”
On the death of Anton Yelchin: “It’s been devastating. It doesn’t feel like there’s any justice or there’s no way of understanding it, really. It’s just been a very difficult time for his family. They’re very dignified, beautiful people. He was just like no one else. He really was a unique soul.”
