Trần Loan[1] (born January 17, 1989), known professionally as Kelly Marie Tran, is an American actress.[2][3] She began acting in 2011, with most of her roles being in short film and television. She came to global prominence for her role as Rose Tico in the Star Wars sequel trilogy films The Last Jedi (2017) and The Rise of Skywalker (2019).[4] She voiced Raya in the animated film Raya and the Last Dragon (2021).

Early life

Trần Loan was born on January 17, 1989, in San Diego, California.[5][6] Her parents were refugees from Vietnam who fled the country following the Vietnam War.[7][8] As a child, her father was homeless and grew up on the streets of Vietnam.[9] After moving to the United States, her father worked at Burger King to support the family, and her mother worked at a funeral home.[10]

Tran attended Westview High School in San Diego and worked at a yogurt shop to earn money for head shots.[6][9] Tran then graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in communications.[10][11]

Career

2011–2014: Early work

Her early credits consisted of primarily CollegeHumor videos and small TV roles.[9][12] She landed a commercial agent in 2011, who got Tran to take improv classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade. At The Second City, Tran is part of the all-female, Asian-American improv group, Number One Son.[9][13]

In 2013, she starred in the web-series Ladies Like Us.[11] In 2015, Tran was working as an assistant at a creative recruiting firm in Century City.[9]

2015–2019: Star Wars

In 2015, Tran was cast as Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rose Tico is a rebel mechanic who joins up with main character Finn after the sacrifice of her oldest sister, Paige Tico (Veronica Ngo), a gunner trained by Resistance commander Poe Dameron.[14] When she went to shoot her scenes in England in early 2016, she was required to keep her role secret, so she told her family she was making an independent film in Canada.[15] The Last Jedi made Tran the first Asian-American woman to have a major role in a Star Wars film.[12] In 2017, she also became the first Asian woman to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair when she appeared on the cover of the summer 2017 issue with actor John Boyega (who played Finn), and Oscar Isaac (who played X-Wing fighter pilot Poe Dameron).[16]

Tran plays the lead role of Kaitlin Le in Radiotopia's mystery thriller podcast, Passenger List.[17] She was a series regular on the Facebook Watch series Sorry for Your Loss.[18]

2020–present

Tran voiced Raya in the Walt Disney Animation Studios production Raya and the Last Dragon, replacing Cassie Steele.[19] Tran was to play Val Little in the upcoming Disney+ series Monsters at Work, but has since been replaced by Mindy Kaling. She has also been cast as Dawn in the film The Croods: A New Age, replacing Kat Dennings.[20][21]

Personal life

Online attacks and harassment

Following the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), Tran became the subject of racist and misogynistic attacks over the Internet,[22][23][24][25] including insults about her ethnicity and weight.[26] She was the target of racist trolling on Twitter; in one example, Internet personality Paul Ray Ramsey mocked her weight.[24][27][28] In December 2017, her character Rose Tico's entry on Wookieepedia, an online encyclopedia about the Star Wars universe, was edited to include racist and vulgar comments, which drew national media attention. Fandom, the wiki hosting service that operated the domain, removed the offensive edits, protected the page, and publicly condemned the vandalism.[23][24][27]

After months of online harassment, Tran deleted all of her Instagram posts in June 2018,[22][29][30] and replaced the account bio with, "Afraid, but doing it anyway."[26][31][32] She also pursued therapy following the harassment.[33] Subsequently, several cast and crew members of The Last Jedi condemned the attacks and spoke out in defense of Tran, including writer-director Rian Johnson and actors John Boyega,[34][35][36] Domhnall Gleeson,[37][38] and Mark Hamill,[32][39] the last of whom tweeted a picture of himself with Tran and wrote the caption, "What's not to love? #GetALifeNerds".[31][32][40] Johnson branded the attackers as "manbabies",[26][41][37] and said they represent a "few unhealthy people" and not the "vast majority" of Star Wars fans.[31][32][40] Other celebrities voiced support for Tran as well, including Stephen Colbert, Josh Gad, Kumail Nanjiani, Gabrielle Union, Elijah Wood, and Edgar Wright.[31][36] In less than one day, more than 20,000 fans retweeted a message of support for Tran from a fan on Twitter that sought to "drown out the manbabies".[41] She was also shown support at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con during a "Rally for Rose", where fans appeared in cosplay attire as her Star Wars character Rose Tico or wore "Rose for Hope" T-shirts. Fans posted about the event on social media using the hashtags #ForceOutHate and #RallyForRose.[39][42]

After a prolonged stretch of silence about her harassment, Tran wrote an essay on the subject for The New York Times entitled "Kelly Marie Tran: I Won't Be Marginalized by Online Harassment", which ran on August 21, 2018.[22][1] She described how the matter made her self-conscious, writing that the attacks reinforced microaggressions she had long faced as a Vietnamese-American, and which sought to reinforce a narrative that Asians should be marginalized and treated only as minor characters, both in stories and in real life.[22][34][1] Tran further wrote that the ordeal came to a point when she began to believe the negative remarks made about her, stating they had sent her "down a spiral of self-hate, into the darkest recesses of my mind, places where I tore myself apart, where I put their words above my own self-worth."[30][43] She concluded with, "You might know me as Kelly. I am the first woman of color to have a leading role in a Star Wars movie. I am the first Asian woman to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair. My real name is Loan. And I am just getting started."[22][1] Tran later said the essay was difficult to write, but also "probably one of the proudest moments of [her] career thus far."[44]
