Natalie Portman plays Queen-turned-Senator Padmé Amidala in all three Star Wars prequel films, which also include 2002’s “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones” and 2005’s “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.” Sadly, the character dies at the end of “Revenge of the Sith,” just after naming her newborn twins Luke and Leia.
Of course, with various characters re-emerging thanks to the bevy of Star Wars shows on Disney+, it’s possible that Portman could turn up somewhere in the ever-growing space opera once again. During her appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” fans asked the actress whether she would be up to reprise Padmé. “No one has asked me, but I’m open to it,” she said.
Asked by Andy Cohen how she looks back on her time working on the Star Wars films, Portman answered, “It was amazing. It was the first time I worked digitally. Like, I don’t think anyone was shooting that way then. It was my first time working with a green screen. It was a whole new set of skills to pick up and a whole new world to enter, and obviously [it included] all the Star Wars mythology that everyone lives in, in this country. To get to be a part of that was awesome.”
