New Han Solo Season Trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II

After Tran, who is Vietnamese-American, became a breakout star of the second movie of the new Star Wars trilogy, which paired her romantically with John Boyega (Finn), she was targeted with abuse on Instagram and Twitter and other online platforms. She is also notable for being Star Wars' first women of colour in a major role.

According to numerous reports, including the BBC, Tran deleted her Instagram pictures after trolls began to comment on her race (her parents are from Vietnam) and appearance. The Rose Tico description on the Star Wars "Wookieepedia" website was altered to feature offensive, racist language.

But over the weekend, the actress deleted all of her posts, after months of online racial and sexual harassment.

Tweets have been flooding in supporting her, with Jody Houser saying: "I was lucky enough to meet Kelly Marie Tran briefly, and she was incredibly nice to a comics writer who may have been geeking out a bit too much".




Tran has previously spoken about Asian representation in the movie, telling Rolling Stone: "I would love to live in a world where no one person has to represent a very large group of people in movies or TV".

Trans' Instagram page is still visible, along with the actress's inspiring bio line, "Afraid, but doing it anyway". Rose Tico was unequivocally one of the highlights of The Last Jedi.

Earlier today, the film's director Rian Johnson hit out at "manbabies", tweeting that "on social media a few unhealthy people can cast a big shadow on the wall". "It's sad that her life choices are presently being dictated by a disgusting bunch of so-called Star Wars Fans", said Sanjiv Indran, the president of the Star Wars Malaysia Fan Club.

It is unknown why Tran deleted all of her photos. "I was terrified of being picked apart, of being scrutinized, of being seen", the actress wrote in an IG caption last October, when she was still relatively unknown. Given that the four "Star Wars" films that have been released since that year have earned more than $4 billion, that pushes the total tally to more than $41 billion. "I feel so overwhelmed". "That is not what I signed up for", Ridley said in a December 2017 interview with Glamour.
