A couple days ago rumors were circulating that Lupita Nyong’o’s scenes from the upcoming Star Wars movie, was cut down due to an unsatisfactory performance.
Well, director JJ Abrams has spoken and said that was completely false. The UK paper The Sun reported that Nyong’o’s role had been “massively cut in the finished edit.”
Abrams said “In truth, her performance wasn’t satisfactory. It was spectacular. She brought the character of Maz Kanata to life in the most wonderful, wise, touching, deep and funny way.”
He continued, “Yes, we tried many approaches, and we finally landed on just what the film needed. She elevated all the scenes she’s in, I’m forever grateful, and can’t wait for people to see her stunning performance.”
