During the 20-minute video, Larson revealed that she has tried out for a number of era-defining movies.
Discussing her auditions that proved unsuccessful, she said: “I auditioned for Star Wars too,” though not revealing which film she tried out for. She went on to reveal that she also put herself forwards for The Hunger Games and the 2019 Terminator reboot Dark Fate.
Expanding on the experience of auditioning for Terminator, Larson said: “I actually was thinking about the Terminator reboot today because I got a flat tyre and I was like, ‘Oh the last time I got a flat tyre was when I was driving into my audition for Terminator,” she laughed. “Got a flat tyre at the audition, and then didn’t get the job.”
Star Wars fans have been speculating as to which role they think Larson auditioned for, with many assuming it was Rey (who has been played by Daisy Ridley since 2015’s The Force Awakens, or Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones in 2016’s Rogue One.
It was revealed earlier this year that a new Star Wars film is in the works, set to be directed by Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.
