Over the New Year’s weekend, a young woman named Perls took her Mexican-born father to see Rogue One. She wasn’t sure how he was going to react to to the film, but when he noticed that actor Diego Luna did not try to hide his own Mexican accent while playing the role of Captain Cassion Andor, Perl’s father took great interest. The two discussed the importance of representation after the movie, about which she later wrote in a really touching post on Tumblr. The actor took notice of Perl’s post and tweeted it out to his followers.
