The Last Jedi: Rian Johnson Confirms A-Wing Leader Tallie Lintra is Played by Actress Hermione Corfield

Yesterday we wrote an article (now removed by request) about the evacuation of D’Qar in The Last Jedi, which includes protection by the A-wing squadron commanded by a new character, Tallie Lintra. Writer/director Rian Johnson was asked who is playing the character via Twitter, and kindly enough Johnson replied that it was British actress Hermione Corfield.




Corfield’s acting credits include Mr. Holmes, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.



There is no confirmation as to whether the character Tallie Lintra will have a large role in the film or in the future of the trilogy, but she is indeed leading the A-wing squadron in aiding Poe Dameron’s fighters to protect the Resistance’s evacuation of D’Qar. Here is a picture of Lintra in the cockpit of her A-wing in The Last Jedi!





Johnson went on to have fun with writer/director Chris McQuarrie who got involved in the Twitter conversation, after McQuarrie jokingly took credit for Johnson being introduced to Corfield thanks to him.



It is always fun to hear about new characters in the Star Wars galaxy, and it’s also another reminder of how close we are to seeing these new characters in action. We welcome Hermione Corfield to the Star Wars community and look forward to seeing her bring Tallie Lintra to life in The Last Jedi this December!



You can find me not flying an A-wing on Twitter @JohnnyHoey and you know we’ll be talking about this on SWNN’s official podcast The Resistance Broadcast (@RBatSWNN)!

    So the rebels have to flee their base after blowing up the First Order’s main weapon, hmm didn’t another Star Wars sequel feature the rebels fleeing their base after they blew up the Empire’s main weapon. Seems like a bit more re-treading going on in these stories. Not trying to troll here just sayin. I am excited about this movie, just hoping we don’t have to keep seeing the original trilogy re-told.

      Attack of the Clones?

      • October 11, 2017 at 10:28 pm

        Hoth – Empire Strikes Back

    • October 4, 2017 at 8:45 pm

      It’s either that or the Resistance tries to hold its base and defend it, which it appears to be hardy equipped to do without being decimated. So of course they are going to flee.

      We never saw the rebels evacuate Yavin 4. We saw them evacuate a base which they prob had to do more than once I assume.

        Which is a cool concept. And I hope this is the actual opening of the movie as it would be a cool homage to ROTS.

      • October 11, 2017 at 10:26 pm

        Was referring to Hoth – Empire Strikes Back

    • October 4, 2017 at 10:10 pm


      • October 11, 2017 at 10:27 pm

        have you seen Empire Strikes Back?

        • October 12, 2017 at 9:56 pm

          Yes, have you?

          There is enough time between ANH and ESB that they aren’t fleeing right after they blew up the Death Star. They flee after they get found.

          This is different. This would be like if they fled Yavin right after and there was a battle we saw.

          So, not the same.

          • October 13, 2017 at 9:45 pm

            Obviously there is time between the destruction of the Death Star and the rebels fleeing Hoth – and the destruction of Star Killer Base with the rebels fleeing Crait for that matter. Does not change my original post about the concept of the Rebels being flushed out of their base in both middle installments of their respected trilogy seems like a repetitive theme.

      I get where your coming from, mainly for me the use of the Walkers in such a fashion (they looked good in R1). I’m familiar with Star Wars having a formula of similar beats, but its taking those beats and putting them in with a fresh twist that is the key.

      We shall see…….but have faith.

    • October 8, 2017 at 12:18 am

      I totally understand your skepticism. I will admit; I am super biased as I love Rian Johnson as a director. Heck, when he was announced as TLJ’s director I was more excited for that than TFA. But to be fair, I cannot stand Abrams as a director. But I digress.

      I feel like a lot of the anxiety is from the marketing. Now, while I do not mind the lack of marketing up until now, I can see why people would be nervous. Especially, with the Walkers and how we’ve already seen them in one prior D-era LF SWs film, RO.

      But I have faith Rian Johnson won’t do this. Unless, KK or someone overides him, I have a strong hunch he is actually going to use that expectation of people thinking this movie will be ESB to his advantage. For example, how awesome would it be if we got a Walker assault on Crait and one Resistance fighter tries to do the tow cable method, but the FO catches on and sees that tactic?

      It would go a long way into redeeming the FO from being a bunch of idiots to a force that isn’t messing around.

    She’s hot. Nothing else matters.

    • October 4, 2017 at 10:04 pm

      I’d probably be more excited for Tallie if she (probably) will only have 5 seconds of screentime and end up in a fiery death.

      • October 5, 2017 at 12:17 am

        It worked for Boba Fett…

        • October 5, 2017 at 12:50 am

          and Hobbie,,, oh wait

  • October 4, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    ‘Tallie Lintra’.. not to be confused with the character of ‘Jessica Pava’. Sheesh.

    • October 4, 2017 at 10:02 pm

      What, are there finally too many character names to remember in Star Wars?

  • October 4, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    I want an action figure of her, real size, latex…

  • October 4, 2017 at 8:29 pm

    they couldn’t find a helmet that fits? she looks like Anakin in that cockpit

    • October 4, 2017 at 9:38 pm

      You mean Annie.

  • October 4, 2017 at 8:35 pm

    I have no interest whatsoever in this character.

  • October 4, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    Another cute girl? Geez, this movie is looking more and more like a rehash of “Empire Records” every day.

  • October 4, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    They will NOT be using a second Death Star in TLJ. They will in fact be using the Death Star Destroyer.

    • October 4, 2017 at 10:02 pm

      Don’t you mean fourth Death Star?

  • October 4, 2017 at 10:30 pm

    I am starting to wonder if there are any blonds in the new SW universe. LOL

    • October 4, 2017 at 10:31 pm

      Maybe Maz Kanata was once a blonde…hmmm.

    • October 4, 2017 at 11:01 pm

      What about Phasma? =)

  • October 5, 2017 at 3:29 am

    Wearing an Amelia Earhart scarf?

  • October 5, 2017 at 9:37 am

  • October 5, 2017 at 11:43 pm
