"I'm a big Star Wars fan, so it was, yeah, a little dream come true. […] I'm just so humbled all the time with these opportunities and experiences. Some things that you just, when you're small, […] you have dreams and you watch these things and just imagine yourself in them one day. Then suddenly it happens, and it's just. I don't know, it just fills you with those childlike emotions again."
