ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY - An Actual Post-Release Thread - Page 106
Donnie Yen on Asian representation in Hollywood movies
including criticisms of his own role in Rogue One
I am surprised he is so down on his role in Rogue One. It did not seem to me like his character was there [primarily] for pandering value.
He's saying he had to work with them to get the character to where it was in the final film. It was much thinner on paper and Yen still wishes the role could've been fleshed out more in light of the general practice of pandering for the Chinese market.
Doesn't he say something like [paraphrasing]: "you think the end product of Rogue One is bad, you should have seen what it was like before!"
I took that to mean he wasn't impressed with his role in Rogue One (as it ended up on the screen).
It was more like "you think the character was cliched in the film? you should've seen what it was like before!"
And it's true. The guy was a cliche. A cliche I don't mind because he's just so charismatic with what little screentime he has. But still one I can see Yen express some regret about in terms of not pushing for more.
Yeah. He died. And then his body was incinerated by a Death Star blast. I think "never" is a fair guess.
That’s said, he shouldn’t feel too bad. He was about the only human character in the film with an ounce of charm!

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM dunno about that. I guess podracing and the final duel ARE pretty neat...
I also love everything about Liam Neeson in the film and don't hate Jake Lloyd's performance anywhere near as much as I'm supposed to.
