Barriss Offee actress Nalini Krishan: “Star Wars has changed my world and my life”
“FIFTEEN years ago a woman born in Samabula scored the role of her lifetime when she landed the part of a Jedi warrior in Star Wars Episode Two: Attack of the Clones.
A decade and a half later and the part she played in the movie continues to earn her new fans and takes her places she has never been before.
“A lot of people still don’t believe it when I tell them that I never auditioned for the part. My agent called me one day and said the guys from Star Wars wanted to see me,” Nalini Krishan shared.
“I did not audition for the role. I must have looked the part I guess, I went in and the next thing you know I was being fitted for the costume of the character Barriss Offee.
“It’s been 15 years since Episode II was released but it still feels like I’m a Jedi warrior.
“The response from fans and followers of the Star Wars series is nothing short of phenomenal.
“It has changed my world and my life. I now travel frequently attending shows and meeting fans that I never met before, I love it!”
Her role in Attack of the Clones continues to take the 39-year-old Fiji-born actress around the world meeting Star Wars fans at conventions in USA, Canada, Europe, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia.”
