Plans laid out for Mon Mothma


Australian actress Genevieve O’Reilly talked to The Herald Sun about the joy of being cast in the next “Star Wars” movie. "It’s such a juggernaut," the 27-year-old actress, set to play Mon Mothma, said. "That trilogy had a huge impact on all of us as kids. All my cousins had the figurines and if we were playing Star Wars, I was generally Princess Leia." "As an actor you really get a feel for the project when you walk on set and I’m really looking forward to that," she said. O’Reilly also appears in the coming third Matrix movie. "One opportunity may open the door to where your dreams are, and one thing I’d love to do is tell a wonderful Australian story. The soul of our nation lies in those little stories," she said.
