Laura Dern, Admiral Holdo in The Last Jedi, says she forgot she wasn’t an eight-year-old Star Wars fan in her childhood bedroom, and couldn’t resist making the sound of ‘pew, pew’ whilst shooting her gun in the film. You can see her mouthing the words in the embedded tweet below, and as referenced by Rian Johnson in the commentary for The Last Jedi which was released in digital form in the US yesterday….

This isn’t exactly breaking news as Dern admitted it to Stephen Colbert back when she appeared on The Late Show in August, long before the film even came out.
