Head on over to the official site for an interview Lucasfilm’s dandy Dan Brooks recently conducted with actress Erin Kellyman who did a phenomenal job portraying Cloud-Rider gang leader Enfys Nest in Solo: A Star Wars Story. The work Kellyman displayed on screen as Enfys Nest was easily one of the highlights of Solo and had me wanting to learn more about this character the second I stepped out of the theater. Check out the intro to her interview with Dan below and then take the supplied source link for the full read.
There are those characters in movies that just pop off the screen — the ones that draw your attention from the first moment you see them and don’t let go. Enfys Nest, the masked marauder of Solo: A Star Wars Story, is one of those characters. The costume, with its tribal, dystopian, found-object look, is incredible. Enfys looks cool, no doubt, and is a threat to our heroes in a way that commands respect. But there’s another layer to the draw of Enfys. When the supposed villain, leader of the deadly Cloud-Riders biker gang, de-masks at the end of the film — revealing a wise-beyond-her-years young woman — she is elevated even higher. We’re moved from feelings of suspicion and fear to empathy and allegiance. She’s somehow even cooler. And in that instant, both Enfys and actor Erin Kellyman, who plays the surprise hero with confidence and subtlety, join the ranks of the best in Star Wars. To mark this week’s release of Solo on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and On-Demand, StarWars.com caught up with Kellyman about auditioning, swoop bikes, and the complexity of Enfys Nest.
