But that’s not all — we also posed this question to three Lucasfilm employees. Check out their answers, and let us know your pick in the comments!
“While my favorite character is Kylo Ren, the character I relate to the most is Poe Dameron. Poe is so calm, even in the most intense situations, which in the world of events is something I strive to be, as well. He’s confident in his abilities and wants to do his best 100 percent of the time. Poe has this incredible swagger and charisma that I want to see more of in myself, and he has such amazing style! Plus, he’s also best friends with BB-8, like me.” – Daniel Kennedy (Events Coordinator, Lucasfilm)
“As much as I love the characters from the classic saga, I have come to realize that I identify most with one of the newer characters: Jyn Erso from Rogue One. She is quick-witted, strong-willed, and resourceful, and though I can probably say that about many of the heroes in the Star Wars universe, Jyn has an edginess to her that I can relate to.” – Celina Chu (Softlines Design Manager, Star Wars Product Development)
“Since first meeting her in Marvel’s Darth Vader series, Doctor Aphra has really been one of the Star Wars characters I can most identify with. I may not be a rogue archaeologist, but like her, I am certainly someone passionate about my work. But what I think I most identify with is how no matter the mess she finds herself in, she always finds a way to keep moving forward and persevere. I’d like to think I do that myself. Though I must say, thankfully, the messes in life I find myself in are much more mundane than hers!” – Michael Dailey (Associate Producer, Lucasfilm Games Team)
