I was invited on an all expense paid trip to share with you all that happens on the Solo press junket. All opinions are my own.
Going on these trips it’s all about finding the fun in the interviews. Phoebe was a fun, laid back, easy to love person. I’m so glad we were able to meet and interview her. I truly believe we’ve only scratched the surface of what she will do in Hollywood. She’s so fun. I’d like to introduce you to Phoebe Waller-Bridge who plays L3-37 in Solo!
Were you a fan of Star Wars and seen all the films before being invited to be in Solo?
I did know about Star Wars but hadn’t watched them yet when I got the part. I have since watched them all! It worked in my favor. I was very loose in my audition I had no idea what a droid was. In the end after watchng them, I loved the films so much.
How did the droid L3-37 costume work?
PWB: I had load of fittings. They scanned my whole body and I wore this green suit and then they built the suit to fit my body. Then drilled it on. It was heavy. It was flexible so I can move more flexibly. She was a self made droid.
She’s a sassy droid are you sassy?
PWB: Uh no! I dream of being sassy.
How’s it feel to be the spokesperson for Droid liberation?
PWB: I’ve actually been that for a very long time. It’s so cool she has a social cause. She’s got an agenda. She’s unique and it’s good to have a message. She’s got humor and heart and I loved that about her.
Phoebe is writing and producing on Killing Eve do you like acting, writing, or producing more?
PWB: I like them all. I was writing Killing Eve while doing this film. It was actually a relief to get into my green suit and be L3 after writing about murder all day.
How did you prepare for your role as a droid?
PWB: I was ready to do all sorts of preparation. Do you want me to workout? No, that little weird, awkward walk you’re doing is perfect. She’s more relaxed in her voice and body. If I offered something droidy they would say stop that! It was funny actually.
How did you get involved with the film?
PWB: Phil and Chris had seen my show Fleabag on Amazon and they made the link between that character and L3. I’m forever grateful for that connection. I had one audition with them and it lasted about an hour.
She’s a scene stealer in this film. Go see it tomorrow! You won’t be sorry!
