On May the 4th, we saved a special Jedi announcement for the show. Please welcome Amy Allen to the Washington State Summer Con this June. Hopefully, this will bring some Jedi Order to balance the heavy Sith presence in Puyallup.
Amy Allen portrays the Jedi Aayla Secura in Star Wars Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Amy was an employee at Lucasfilm when she was selected to play Aayla Secura, the female Twi’Lek Jedi from the Dark Horse Comic books. Reportedly, George Lucas saw the character on the cover of a comic and was so impressed he wanted to add her digitally into Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.
Next to playing Aayla Secura, Amy Allen appears in three different guises during the Outlander Club sequence in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. She was filmed during principal photography standing near the video screens in one outfit, and digitally cloned by ILM to appear in two different places at the same time. These ‘two’ characters were later identified as twins Mya and Yma Nalle. During pickup shots she appeared behind Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen as they discuss the changeling, wearing a hat and thick braids. This patron was later named Lela Mayn.
Come meet Amy at the Washington State Summer Con on June 18th and 19th
