Felicity Jones was ‘rebellious teenager’

Los Angeles, Dec 14 (IANS) Actress Felicity Jones, who grew up in Bournville, Birmingham, says she was a bit of a rebel in her younger years.

“When did I go rogue? Probably when I was growing up and I was a teenager. At times I was a bit of a rebellious teenager,” Jones, who will next be seen in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, told eonline.com.

The 33-year-old previously said that she thinks it is “wonderful” that young girls can look up to her character Rebel Alliance fighter Jyn Erso.

“I just feel it’s a wonderful moment that young girls get to celebrate someone like Jyn just as they did with Daisy Ridley’s Rey (in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’),” Jones said.

“She is someone who has great humanity, she has an independent spirit and lives by her beliefs, and I think there’s something wonderful about her for a young girl to admire,” she added.
