Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Logan star Dafne Keen will take on the role of a Theelin Jedi Padawan called Jecki Lon in Star Wars: The Acolyte

The Padawan to Lee Jung-jae's Jedi Master Sol, it sounds like she'll be helping him investigate the mysterious - likely Sith - threat to the Jedi Order. The site also spoke with the actress and asked what she could say about Jecki Lon's role in the upcoming Star Wars TV series. 

"Well, I'm very excited that we know her name now, because it was secret for so long. And I'm very happy that I get to say that she's an alien and that she's a Padawan and that she's a Jedi. She’s a mixed species - part Theelin, part human."

"She's very cool and I have some very cool fights I do with the lightsaber. I really love her," Keen continued. "She's a great character and was really fun to play. I'm very excited that the trailer came out. I was buzzing for days."

Pushed for details on what sort of relationship the Padawan has with her Master, she said, "I'd say she is a very dedicated Padawan. She's definitely in awe of him in a very kind of sweet way. She thinks the absolute world of him in a way that I think they have a very sweet relationship, but she's much more aware of the authority difference than, for example, Obi-Wan and Anakin."

"She's very much like, 'No, he's the master and I'm the Padawan and he's perfect. And everything he says, I have to follow to the T.'"

Charmaine DeGraté and Kor Adana are the co-executive producers, and Rayne Roberts and Damian Anderson are producing.
