Revenge of the Sith | Behind the Scenes | Amy Allen Transforms Into Aayla Secura

“The role of Aayla came about just prior to the release of Episode II. I was working for ILM as a stage production assistant on EP II. SW was in full swing and George Lucas had spotted a Dark Horse Comic Book with Aayla on the cover. My production manager and friend Julie D'Antoni asked me if I was up for the part! I said sure. After all I had previous Twi'lek experience. For the DVD of The Phantom Menace, I was a Twi'lek Senatorial Aide. I am pretty sure this all came to fruition in January/February of 2002. Overall it was a fantastic experience and one I will never forget.” - Amy Allen
