Inferno star Felicity Jones talks Star Wars and dronesFelicity Jones tells us about her role in Inferno and being chased by a drone. She explains that her childhood memories of watching Star Wars made her role in Rogue One a no-brainer.
The professor has become a liability. [SOUND] Go go let's get it here here. There's always a way out. Nice to have you back professor. [MUSIC] No definitely wanted to say that at the beginning that she was someone. With a secret. So that perhaps when you watch the film again, you would realize, you see the clues that something else is going on for Sienna. That it's not, not everything is quite as it seems. [MUSIC] That was the scene that never ended. [LAUGH] Literally, we were saying to each other Truly we've got this scene, but no, every day we would come back and shoot the scene where we're chased by the drone. [LAUGH] So it was a constant feature of the schedule. You have those moments where you're doing those kind of scenes, when you're running away from a drone and it's boiling hot and you're in the middle of Florence. And you're like, this is what being an actor's about. This is great. [MUSIC] Well, I liked with both of the films, I feel that the stories that they're telling are relevant. I felt like there was something very modern about Inferno, the issues it addresses. The way that Ron was going to shoot it, It's used a lot of hand held. Everything about it was so international, it felt like it was a very contemporary story. And then with Rogue One the opportunity to play a great female lead character. And I jumped at the chance. [MUSIC] It's definitely. For everyone Star Wars has been a part of their lives in some capacity and I remember watching it very early on and get my cousins and my brother and we were all huddled around the VHS player. Which sounds very old fashioned now but that was the way then. And I just, it was just great It's a great thing to be apostle, but it's really like no other experience. You [INAUDIBLE] walking with the most bazaar looking creatures everyday. And you get to travel in spaceship [LAUGH] They're kind of fun things that you don't get to do in everyday life. [BLANK_AUDIO]
