The upcoming Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, may see the series’ first LGBT character.
Passages from a new book which the film is based on, Leia: Princess of Alderaan, suggest that the resistance’s Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo – played by Laura Dern – may be pansexual. The clues are in the following passage, in a conversation between Holdo and Leia.
“A pair of pretty dark eyes.” Then Amilyn thought about that for a moment. “Or more than a pair, if you’re into Grans. Or Aqualish, or Talz. Or even – ”
“That’s all right! Leia said through laughter. “It’s just humanoid males for me.”
