Oscar Isaac was asked about Star Wars fans who see the opportunity for a romance to bud between Poe and John Boyega’s character Finn in an upcoming episode, and Collider asks him what that means to him.
Said Isaac: “What it means to me is that people can see themselves in a hero like this, in a movie like this, which I love. Not only LGBT, but Latinos. That there’s a representation out there for that.”
As to specifics, Isaac isn’t giviing much up: “As to actually seeing how that manifests itself in Poe in this film, that isn’t necessarily going to be a clear story point in this one. But as an actor, I’m very open to those possible storylines and I don’t think it needs to be nailed down in any traditional way.”
