Real-Life Star Wars: We're Now Writing The Rules For Combat In Space

Kelly Marie Tran just joined the "Star Wars" family as she stars in the "Star Wars: Episode 8". She had been to many other films and now she will belong to one of the most famous franchise of all time. 

Daisy Ridley has been very anonymous just right around this time in 2015. The very young actress had been casted in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" of J.J. Abrams and at that point in the history of the "Star Wars" Saga, she has been in a so-so and considered an unimportant character. However, at that time, she has yet to evolve into becoming Rey, the central topic of the newest trilogy of the Star Wars series. Because of "The Force Awaken"s, Daisy Ridley has become a household name and Kelly Marie Tran surely would want to take an advice from her.

Who is Kelly Marie Tran, by the way? By the time that Disney revealed that Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: Episode 8" is staring to get produced, they have also released a list of the full cast. Benicio Del Toro is included in the list, Laura Dern is surprising to be there too. And then here comes Kelly Marie Tran who will join the likes of Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamil and any more, according to Gamespot.

So what do we know about this Kelly Marie Tran? This rising star have started acting back in 2011 in TV series that includes Untouchable, The Rising Cost of Cosmetics, as well as Impressions. She has also been cameoing in a number of web series such as College Humor, and educational guides with regards to women's periods pointed at men, according to Cinema Blend.

One of the most certain idea that we know of as of now is that this actress' life will sure change, forever. Young actors who are casted in big production films are being thrown into the limelight which will eventually open up other doors of opportunity, most especially when the one he or she is casted into is the Star Wars Saga. Old actors may try to deflect this light but for sure, the world will ask who Kelly Marie Tran is and her character in the "Star Wars: Episode 8". Everyone's excited.
