- "I'm a topps card and action figure 🤷🏻♂️ Turns out dreams do come true, in Star Wars; Rise of Skywalker I played one of the Knights of Ren... Watching Darth Maul growing up inspired me on my path to where I am today so playing a Sith (sic) like him feels unreal. Thanks to Mikey Lambert and Eunice Huthart for the opportunity."
