When and where did you first see Star Wars?
Last summer at my house.
Who’s your favorite Star Wars character?
Anakin Skywalker. He had the craziest journey out of everybody. He was experiencing situations and powers that he didn’t know that he had. He thought he was normal, and then he devoted himself to something. I don’t think he was ever an evil character. He just believed in different stuff than other people.
What’s your favorite Star Wars movie?
I think it’s Revenge of the Sith.
Which Star Wars character would you want as a teammate?
Han Solo. He’s a fighter, he’s very deceptive, and he’ll always find a way to win.
If you could legally wield any Force power in a game, which would it be?
Mind control. Or you know, just the Force itself, because I’ll know what’s going to happen.
Tickets for Star Wars Nights are available now.
