Paige Tico, played by actress Veronica Ngo, pulled off an incredibly moving act of sacrifice in the action-packed opening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” that is so perfect it makes up for her very brief screen time.
Disney and Lucasfilm have finally released the Tico Sisters action figures for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, and many Asian American fans were quite pleased with the studios’ toys.
The studios released several products from Hasbro involving the two characters, Rose and Paige Tico, who are played by Vietnamese-American actress Kelly Marie Tran and Vietnamese actress Veronica Ngo, respectively, during its recent Force Friday II event just after midnight on September 1.
“Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi” is still a few months away, but pictures of the characters’ action figures have already surfaced online, including Rose Tico, played by Vietnamese-American actress Kelly Marie Tran.
The Force is strong with this one as Tran is, as @nerdyasians points out, the first Asian woman to play a major character in the Star Wars saga AND she gets her very own action figure. How cool is that?!
