Follow These ‘Star Wars’ Actresses on Instagram and ‘May the 4th Be With You’

In honor of the May holiday that has nothing to do with tequila or nachos.

Women By

In the first week of May, there’s a holiday we look forward to that has nothing to do with tequila, nachos or misconceived notions about the actual date of Mexican Independence.

It is, of course, of May the 4th that we speak.

A day of rattling lightsabers or embracing the Dark Side, May the 4th is made for celebrating the entirety of the Star Wars universe ASAP in this galaxy right here.

Therefore, we thought it’d be appropriate to bring you a quartet of actresses from the films to look up on Instagram on the 4th, the 5th or whenever you have the time.

You’re welcome, young padawan.

Actress: Veronica Ngo
Character: Paige Tico
Film: Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Wait … Who was she again? During the beginning of Episode VIII, the Vietnamese actresses’ character—a gunner being trained by Resistance fighter pilot Poe Dameron—sacrifices herself and takes out the First Order’s Dreadnought ship so that the rest of the Rebels can get away.

Actress: Billie Catherine Lourd
Character: Lieutenant Connix
Film: Star Wars: The Last Jedi; Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Wait … Who was she again? A member of the Resistance, Lieutenant Connix was among several officers who supported Poe Dameron’s mutiny against Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo. Lourd also happens to be Carrie Fisher’s daughter.

Actress: Michaela Coel
Character: Resistance Monitor
Film: Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Wait … Who was she again? If you blinked, you might have missed her. Coel is only seen for a brief moment on the bridge of a Resistance ship and has only one line: “They’ve found us.”

Actress: Christina Chong
Character: Undetermined
Film: Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Wait … Who was she again? If you don’t remember her, you’re forgiven—there’s no way you could. Chong was cast and shot scenes for Episode VII, but they were cut before it was released. She still gets credit for it from us—and on IMDB.
