“Representation matters.” Yes. it. does.
Mexican actor Diego Luna is one of the stellar lead cast in Rogue One.
And now the star is proving just how much diversity on screen matters.
On Monday the Star Wars actor shared an emotional story he’d seen from a fan, who revealed how important it was to her Mexican father that Diego had kept his own Mexican accent in the film.
Tumblr user riveralwaysknew shared a story about how she had taken her father to see the movie and he was stunned to see a Mexican in a lead role.
