“I know who I think Rey’s related to, but I’m not gonna say it because I’m pretty sure I’m right, and I don’t wanna be sued. Because the thing is, that was the role I originally auditioned for. So I got really far with that, and I read, and I found a lot about that character. So… I’m pretty sure I know.” —Jessica Henwick (Jessika Pava in Star Wars: The Force Awakens) answers questions about Rey’s parentage at Florida Supercon 2016
Louis’ emotional vulnerability is so important and inspiring to me. As someone who nearly self destructed because I didn’t talk to anyone about my grief, I really do realize the enormity of what Louis is doing when he opens up like this and the incredible strength it takes to do that. I think the hardest thing in the world is to leave yourself vulnerable, to open yourself up to the world and stay soft. And Louis has done it in a way that seems effortless.
Like, he makes it seem talking about grief and loss and finding yourself is just being honest. That it’s just that simple. When really it is terrifying and against every instinct that you have.
I am in awe of him and the love and sincerity he is capable of. I don’t think I’ll ever stop being in awe of him.
