Actress Anna Brewster Reveals Her Most Difficult Moment Playing Bazine in TheForceAwakens


Actress Anna Brewster just revealed the most difficult acting moment of her role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Brewster, who portrayed Bazine Netal in the film, is a human female mercenary who informs the First Order of the presence of Rey and Finn in Maz Kanata’s castle. The Actress recently told Tatler Magazine that she was scared of messing up in front of one Swashbuckling actor.




When the legendary Han Solo visits the backwater dive at Maz’s Castle in ‘The Force Awakens’ it introduced a variety of new characters. One of the characters first seen in a Vanity Fair shoot resting comfortably on the belly of the giant Grumgarr is a spy known as Bazine Netal, played by Actress Anna Brewster. In her starring moment, Anna looks sultry and whispers in an alien language to a Jabba The Hutt-style intergalactic creature. The former model, originally from Moseley, Birmingham, told Tatler magazine that she had to make up an alien language for her role and that pressure got to her because she was afraid of messing up in front of Harrison Ford.


“There’s nothing like having Harrison Ford lurking around [on set] to pile on the pressure.” She said.


Brewster obviously kept her cool and delivered her improvised language flawlessly despite feeling nervous around Ford.


There’s no word yet on whether the Bazine character will show up in future Star Wars films. However, you can find out more about the character in a short story called The Perfect Weapon – Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens ebook. You can find more information on the book in our review here.

    I’m surprised they let her make the line herself, but it sounded really good! 🙂

      Yeah I’m surprised too. It sounded pure Star Wars though!

        I agree with you both. That was probably the best sounding alien dialogue in the film and she killed it. Like so perfect that I’d really love to see more of her character. Didn’t hurt how confident, sinister and how hot she came across either.

    The second sentence of this story inadvertently describes the actress (instead of the character she portrays) as “a human female mercenary….”

      I don’t see your point at all. They call humans “humans” in the Star Wars universe. From every type of media Star Wars stories have existed. Canon and non-canon. The girl is a female human mercenary.

        He is saying the article called the ACTRESS a human female mercenary, not her character. It’s quite clear.

      Puttin’ on the Ritz.

    I hope we get more classic Star Wars creatures from the previous six films instead of…. Whatever you call those things in Maz’s castle.

      I call them more ORIGINAL aliens.

      • May 1, 2016 at 10:55 am

        Reported for calling something original.

          Empire had aliens you never saw before or again. Most of them you didn’t see again besides, Chewie and Yofa. Ugnaughts never again. Really there weren’t many sentient aliens at all shown in that film. Zuckuss? Bossk?

      Like this guy? Who returned from the ANH cantina as told by Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo

        People don’t want the same old, but they don’t want different either, make up your minds.

    Gender bended Garindan/Long Snoot who’s really just an interspecies Size Queen.

    The aliens pictured above remind me more of Jabba’s Palace than the Cantinna from ANH, especially the bigger ones harken back to Ephont Mon and Hermie Odle.

      It’s nice that they’re not all human-sized.

  • May 1, 2016 at 9:34 am

    Why did she need to improvise a new language? Was it easier than teaching her one line of Huttese?

    • May 1, 2016 at 4:37 pm

      Because who cares?

  • May 1, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    I liked The Perfect Weapon story, although it was mostly predictable and kinda generic. The ending was disappointing though, just when you’re about to discover the mystery they simply leave it at that.

    How frakin’ cool would it be (as a bit player) to have prominent screen time in an installment of the STAR WARS saga? Very cool indeed. She’s like the Hoth base “Two fighters against a Star Destroyer?!?” guy in TESB!
