Jessica Henwick

  1. Rila Fukushima, The Wolverine, 2012.       Henwick, who won her way into Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and Harry Potter girl Katie Leung were in the loop for the pink-haired precognitive mutant Yukio in Hugh Jackman’s sixth outing as his titular mutant. Japan locations were played by New South Wales. Yukio marked Rila’s feature film debut.
  2.  Daisy Ridley, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, 2014.
  3. Emilia Clarke, Solo: A Star Wars Story, 2017.   Or as it worked out – Solo: A Star WarsCock-Up.   Game of Throne’s Jessica Henwick was favourite for Qi’ra after being X-wing pilot Jess Testor in Star Wars: The Force Awakens,2014. (She joined the Marvelverse as Colleen Wing opposite Luke Cage, 2018).  Other contenders for the awful mess were Kiersey Clemons (she sped into Ezra Miller’s Flash movie, 2019), Zoë Kravitz (Lenny’s daughter from Mad Max; Fury Road, 2014), Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger Kimberly in Power Rangers, 2016) and Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, 2017).  But the other GoT find won – and Clarke proved she was nothing without her dragons.   Good for Jurassic 19, perhaps.
