If I’ve spoken to you in the past week – not face-to-face, obviously – then you’ll know that I’ve become totally head-over-heels in love with Bryce Dallas Howard.
I’d like to take this time to apologise to my current one true love, Grogu. Oh, and my girlfriend of several years.
After catching up with Bryce Dallas Howard about the second season of The Mandalorian (and rinsing her for, weirdly, living in Slough) I just came to realise that she may be one of the greatest humans alive.
You can’t speak about the world of Star Wars without enquiring about easter eggs, can you? And we weren’t just talking about the eggs that Baby Yoda brutally snatched from their Frog Lady mother and swallowed whole.
The Jurassic World actor said “There’s a couple of SpaceX easter eggs in there.
“When you look at the console in the Razor Crest, you’ll see on the screen that there’s the ‘I Love You’ that SpaceX has. I don’t know if folks have picked up on it yet.”
Being the award-winning* journalist that I am, I also wanted to get to the nitty-gritty of Bryce’s career, and ask about something that no-one else would dare mention… Baby Grinch or Baby Yoda.
As part of both franchises, Bryce Dallas Howard immediately said that Baby Yoda was far cuter than Baby Grinch, as she immediately fell in love with Grogu. Is that a bit harsh to her father, Ron Howard’s work? Will she now be grounded for a month?
I’ll find out on my next hard-hitting interview.
