I think we can all agree that Kelly Marie Tran was the best new addition to the “Star Wars” franchise as her character Rose really brings the heart and soul of the Resistance to ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘. Not only that, but she’s been having an obvious blast when seen in public from all of this! Her latest fun-filled moment is from a recent meal at a local pub where she was sitting with a friend and suddenly overheard a group who had just seen the latest installment in the Skywalker Saga and were eagerly talking about it.
They were referencing things in “minute detail” and it wasn’t long before Tran couldn’t take it anymore and jumped right into the conversation! Her friend was capturing the moment they were discussing Rose and kept filming as Tran jumped into the fray.

A few days ago, I was at a pub eating pie with a friend, when this DELIGHTFUL group of people came in. They sat down at the table next to me and started discussing The Last Jedi — in minute detail. My friend started filming as I listened, and she captured my reaction as they discussed Rose. After lots of creepy listening — and eating — I awkwardly walked over to introduce myself. They couldn’t be more lovely. What an incredible moment in a string of incredible moments I’ve been experiencing lately. ❤️ In my 8 years as a struggling actor, I came to the realization that the hardest thing to obtain from another human being is their genuine interest. Sometimes, getting someone to listen to your story — your idea — is really hard. It’s pretty impossible for a movie to get made, and there are many stories that don’t make it into a book or a film or a television show. I know how lucky I am to be a part of something that people love, to be able to act and tell stories at all. And one of my greatest joys has been creepily listening to conversations about TLJ when I’m out and about. Regardless of opinion or preference, it’s still a topic of discussion. And no matter who we are, no matter where we’re from, if we can really listen and have a conversation about something — anything — it can really open up a door. It can open us up to new ideas and new understanding. So thanks, wonderful people, for watching and dissecting and discussing. It makes me happy to know that we made something that’s starting a dialogue. My heart is so full, and my goals are so clear. Let’s tell more stories. Let’s have more conversations. Let’s get to know lives and worlds different from our own. And most of all — let’s open our hearts and accept our differences. More love, less hate. Also, more pies, because THEY ARE AMAZING. ❤️ PS @catmahoney87 — thanks for not thinking it was creepy when I went through my insta tags to find this photo so I could write about this moment. ❤️
While all of the actors in the film have had great reactions to being a part of the Star Wars franchise, Tran’s pure joy in every shot and video that is shared really shines through and this group was able to be lucky enough to be talking next to the star. Though, I think that we’re just as lucky for being able to see these reactions!
