In an interview with Flaunt Magazine, the 28-year-old recalled, “I met everyone, tested, and then I found out really early that I got the job. That usually doesn’t happen. I found out right away, which was so exciting and nerve-wracking: [I was] just a big ball of emotions.”

Arjona also explained how she first fell in love with acting after using the craft as a form of escapism. “I can hide under a mask, I can hide under the name of a character and I can hide under this role,” she said.

Discussing the secrecy surrounding the new “Star Wars” flick, she added, “They definitely hired the wrong person: I am the worst with keeping secrets. I get so over-excited that I just want to share everything.”

On Thursday, it was announced that Patty Jenkins will be directing “Rogue Squadron”, making her the first woman to direct a “Star Wars” feature film.
