His former girlfriend Kelly Marie Tran

Kelly Marie Tran was born on January 17th, 1989. She is an American actress who has done roles in short films and television episodes, but she gained wider recognition for her role as Rose Tico in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ which was the eighth film in the Star Wars series. Kelly Marie Tran was born in San Diego, California to parents who are refugee immigrants from Vietnam who fled the country during the Vietnam War. As a child, her father was homeless and grew up on the streets of Vietnam but after moving to the United States, he got a job at Burger King to support his family. His wife worked at a funeral home. Tran studied at Westview High School in San Diego and also worked at a yogurt shop to earn her own money for head shots. Tran later graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with a B.A. degree in Communications. Tran struggled a bit during the early days of her teenage years as she spent time in Los Angeles auditioning for small parts and doing improv at the ‘Upright Citizens Brigade’ and at ‘Second City,’ as well. In 2013, she won a role in the web series, ‘Ladies Like Us,’ though she has also been featured in various college humor videos. In 2015, Tran starred as Rose Tico in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’. She also appeared in the movie ‘XOXO’ in 2016 as the Butterfly Rave Girl. ‘XOXO’ was about the lives of six strangers who collide during a frenetic night of romance and dream chasing when a young DJ is given a chance to perform at a festival. With her role in The Last Jedi, Tran created history by becoming the first Asian-American woman to play a leading role in a Star Wars film. Later, in 2017, Tran again became the first Asian woman to appear on the cover of ‘Vanity Fair,’ summer 2017 issue with John Boyega and Oscar Isaac. Despite the critical box office success of The Last Jedi, Tran garnered a lot of racially charged online attacks from people who disliked the character of Rose Tico which upset her a lot. In addition, the right-wing vlogger Paul Ray Ramsey also posted a tweet attacking Tran’s appearance. In response to the fan criticism, attorney Anthony Nguyen praised Tran for being “the first woman of color to be cast in a leading role in the Star Wars franchise”. Condemning the unfair racist attacks, Nguyen also remarked that “people of color, especially Asian-Americans, are grossly underrepresented in both television and film.”
