Salma “Laurent” Hayek is in Milan today.
The actor, best known for her role as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy, has been the face of the Milanese clothing industry for more than 30 years, and she’ll be doing a bit of work with the team of Milanese designer Simone Sartoretti.
“It’s been quite a journey for me,” she told Fuse in an exclusive interview.
“It was a very important day for me.
I’d like to thank Simone and the team for their incredible work.
It was very important for me to see how my work can benefit other people.
It has to do with fashion, but also the future of our city.”
“I want to thank everyone at Milan Fashion Week, including Simone, for giving me the opportunity to do this interview,” she continued.
“The fact that I could do it with them was very special.”
Hayek also said that the film’s reception will be similar to her previous film roles.
When the news broke that she would be appearing in the new Star Wars film, she expressed her surprise at being invited to be the first black woman to appear in the Star Wars universe.
“I am a little surprised that I’m being asked.
It is very difficult to find a role that is so important for the black community.
I’ve been asking for this role for years and years.
And it’s a very difficult thing to accept, and I can’t help but feel that I have been lucky that I was invited,” she said.
As the new movie is about to be released, it is also the first time in decades that the actress will be a part of the world’s biggest film.
Hayes has been in Italy for three days and she was given a brief glimpse at the film by the designers.
She said that she feels very welcome.
“It was amazing.
I can imagine that it’s going to be a very positive experience for everyone in the film, as well as the fans,” she added.
The film, which will be directed by Rian Johnson and written by J.J. Abrams, is slated for release on December 18, 2019.
