Diego Luna Shares Rogue One Fan's Touching Story

Diversity in Hollywood tentpoles has become a hot button issue in recent years, and the Star Wars franchise has emerged as one of the leaders in this regard. After The Force Awakens was led by the trio of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story featured the most diverse ensemble in a Star Wars film to date. The scrappy band of Rebels tasked with stealing the Death Star plans were brought to life by a collection of talent including Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, and Wen Jiang. It was nice to see such a well-rounded group in a big studio film, as the cast truly reflected the world Rogue One was released to.

Lucasfilm's decision to go this route has paid off handsomely. Rogue One is marching towards the $1 billion club with $800 million grossed worldwide, and audiences have already become quite fond of the new characters. One fan in particular has a personal connection to Cassian Andor, the Alliance intelligence officer played by Luna, and the actor has now shared that viewer's touching story.

On Twitter, Luna posted a moviegoer's account of their experience seeing Rogue One with her father, who is Mexican. Reading it through, it's apparent that Luna's performance as Cassian made a profound impact on them. Check it out below:
