Moses Ingram on Taking part in Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Reva



Moses Ingram did not develop up a Star Wars fanatic, however now she’s set to vary a galaxy far, distant perpetually. Ingram performs one of many main antagonists within the new Disney+ sequence “Obi-Wan Kenobi”: the mysterious Reva.

“I wasn’t utterly at nighttime beginning,” Ingram tells POPSUGAR of her Star Wars information earlier than she signed on to the present, despite the fact that she hadn’t actually paid shut consideration to the movies earlier than. “I knew about Obi-Wan, I knew about Darth Vader, I had a lightsaber rising up. . . . I knew what a giant deal Star Wars was.”

That information of Star Wars made it “unattainable to say no” when a task in “Obi-Wan Kenobi” got here alongside for the Emmy nominee. To arrange for the function, she largely targeted on the three prequel films, which marked the primary time the connection between Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) was proven on display screen.

“You get assured in your physique and what your physique’s in a position to do in spite of everything that coaching and it simply feels actually nice.”

In “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” Reva is an inquisitor. The inquisitors — former Jedi who’ve turned to the darkish facet and serve below Darkish Vader to assist the empire — have been first launched within the animated sequence, “Star Wars: Rebels,” so many followers won’t be as accustomed to this terrifying order. The group is intent on looking down and killing the galaxy’s remaining Jedi. Reva has not appeared in another Star Wars media, so little or no is thought about her, and Ingram does not wish to give an excessive amount of away earlier than the primary episodes premiere Could 27. “I can let you know that she performs the offensive and she or he’s actually obsessed with what she does and I believe that is the factor that comes by most about her,” she hints.

“It is enjoyable to be dangerous,” she provides. “Significantly, that crimson lightsaber, you recognize? You swing it previous your face and it simply has a glow coming behind it. . . . It is simply actually cool.”

Once we ask Ingram to match Reva to a different well-known villain, she chooses an sudden one: “The Satan Wears Prada”‘s iconic Miranda Priestly. Extrapolating off that morsel of information, it appears Reva will likely be exacting, demanding, brutal, and, above all, effortlessly fashionable. It is a new search for Star Wars’s darkish facet, which has been dominated by males in live-action films and reveals.

For Ingram, an enormous a part of moving into character for the sequence was the coaching she needed to undergo. She defined that she began bodily getting ready 4 months earlier than filming started. On prime of her exercises throughout manufacturing, she spent 9 months in intensive coaching. “You get assured in your physique and what your physique’s in a position to do in spite of everything that coaching and it simply feels actually nice,” she explains. “9 months of actually simply conserving my physique in prime preventing form, as a result of that is what we have been doing, largely, was preventing and flipping and flying and all types of issues.”

Ingram credit McGregor and Christensen with the thrill followers have for “Obi-Wan Kenobi.” “They laid the inspiration for what we get to do at this time,” she says of their affect. “I would not be right here doing this at this time, in the event that they hadn’t executed what they did. It is a useful expertise, having the ability to take in all of their knowledge.” Ingram says that a part of the enjoyable is seeing how followers work together with the pair. “They imply a lot to so many individuals,” she provides.

Regardless of “Obi-Wan Kenobi”‘s darkish subject material — good and evil, trauma, and loss, to call a couple of — Ingram says she had an extremely enjoyable time on set. She explains, “There have been the casualties of the job like night time shoots and excessive warmth within the leather-based, however I rely all of it pleasure.”

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” premieres with two episodes on Disney+ on Could 27, with new episodes dropping weekly.
