Details on Benicio Del Toro’s Last Jedi Character Revealed – “Like There Was a Tiger in the Room”

Since 2015, fans of the Star Wars universe have had to learn about new characters, places, and stories as the franchise worked its way through the final 3 films that Lucas had envisioned. Plenty of speculation surrounds the coming film and one of the big questions is who Benicio del Toro’s Last Jedi character is exactly, and what the role is. The actor sat down with Entertainment Weekly to dish a little on his character.

Rumors have shifted through the internet about Benicio del Toro’s Last Jedi character, DJ, but much about the film has been kept under wraps. Del Toro gave a bit of insight into this character in the interview, however, he left much of it veiled in mystery. Here’s what the actor had to say about his character:

DJ is part of the mission that John Boyega’s Finn and Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose undertake to the wealthy, gambling resort city of Canto Bight. But…do they bring him there? Do they capture him there? Do they free him there?”

Kelly Marie Tran also gave fans a bit more insight into Benicio del Toro’s Last Jedi character, however, it may have left more questions than definite answers. According to the actress, being on set with Del Toro “…felt like there was a tiger in the room…”, referring to the unpredictable nature of a predator. Whether that has more to do with del Toro’s performance or the possibility that DJ is a questionable character who is unpredictable will have to be determined December 15th when the film hits theaters.
