The first six Star Wars movies were notable for their lack of women characters. But the three latest films are quite different, and you can find a lot more women if you look outside the movies. Amy Richau has taken on a year-long project to profile 365 women of the Star Wars universe, one every day in 2018. Unsurprisingly, the very first character featured is Leia Organa. There are 40 profiles so far, from the films, the TV shows, the novels, the comics, the video games, the film crews, actors, and writers. Find out everything from an actor's previous work to a character's trading cards. There will actually be more than 365 when the year is done, since nine of Padmé's handmaidens are bundled into four posts. Today's post is about Toryn Farr, pictured above.
Toryn Farr was a communication officer for the Rebel Alliance in The Empire Strikes Back. You might remember her as the woman who says “Stand by ion control. Fire.” in Hoth.
It turns out Farr (played by actress Brigitte Kahn) is the only woman other than Leia to have a line of dialogue in The Empire Strikes Back.
Yeah, Toryn Farr got an action figure. Check out all the women profiled so far at the site 365 Days of Star Wars Women. No doubt all the days are planned in advance, so who will be featured on December 31st to wrap up the project? My guess is that it will either be Rey, Carrie Fisher, or Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. I'd go with Rey if I were betting. -via Metafilter
