Biography[edit | edit source]
Saché was one of the younger handmaidens, Yané being the youngest. She and the other handmaidens were trained in self-defense and marksmanship by Queen Amidala's head of security, Captain Panaka.
During the Galactic Civil War between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire, Saché was sent to the Mauler Stronghold, situated near the city of Keren, due to the increasing danger represented by the Maulers, a group of assassins.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- "I asked George if I could come and watch the shoot, and he asked if I wanted to be in the royal entourage. (…) I'm at the back with a hood on and you can't really see me. I don't even remember what my character was called."
- ―Sofia Coppola, about her role as Saché
Saché was portrayed by Sofia Coppola in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Coppola considers George Lucas, a long-time friend and working partner of her father Francis Ford Coppola, "like an uncle to me—he used to send me and my brother Roman Star Wars toys when we were little," and upon hearing he was going back to the saga, "thought it'd be so fun to see how they make them" as she was preparing her own directorial debut, The Virgin Suicides. When she asked Lucas if she could attend the shoot, he offered her the role of Saché, and she accepted as "it seemed like a good vantage point to watch without getting in the way."
