"Robin Gurland had me read Shelagh Fraser's lines during my audition. Leading up to that, I spent a lot of time watching her performance and getting a sense for how she held herself and how she spoke. I didn't want to make it exactly like her because this was years earlier in the story and I wanted to show the younger, more innocent side of Beru."
