Natalie Portman Is Up for Returning to Star Wars as Padmé

Must read

Star Wars prequel trilogy star Natalie Portman is up for returning to Star Wars as Padmé Amidala if Lucasfilm asked her to.

Responding to fan questions for GQ's Actually Me series, Portman replied to a Reddit post that asked if the character could ever return. "I have no information on this," she said. "No one's ever asked me to return, but I'm open to it."

Though her character's main story was completed in Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, the potential return of Padmé would follow in the footsteps of co-stars Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor, who played Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi respectively.

The following paragraphs feature mild spoilers for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series.

Both actors returned in the Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi, reprising their prequel trilogy roles 17 years after their previous appearances in Revenge of the Sith. Episode 1: The Phantom Menace star Liam Neeson also returned as Qui-Gon Jinn in the series.

Padmé's story has also continued in other Star Wars media, such as a trilogy of young adult novels and in the Clone Wars TV show.

Portman also mentioned during the video that she stole one of Anakin's padawan braid's from Episode 2: Attack of the Clones (and proceeded to lose it), and she confirmed that Taika Waititi forgot she'd already starred in the franchise when he asked if she'd be up for doing a Star Wars film.
