    Figure she deserves some discussion. Obviously only a few scenes but she was moving in each of them. I especially liked her update to the crew when the leadership was nearly wiped out.


    I also liked her delivery of “Let’s not make a scene on the bridge” and Poe’s “No, let’s.”

    Thanks for giving her this thread! I liked her character. And she survived to the end. A very capable commander who helped Leia and Holdo.

    Another action figure I need. Give me Holdo and D'acy.

    FYI: At the end of the film D’Acy also states that she has a contact in the Outter Rim. So, beyond the allies that they contacted there from Crait in the Outter Rim D’acy herself also knows at least one contact personally herself.

    Thank you for including her photo (so at least I know who she is). I liked her for the reasons you said.

    Lawrence was excellent in this role and I hope her character appears in IX, perhaps in a leadership role after Holdo's sacrifice. In fact, I'd like to see her continuing with a mix of Holdo and Leia's styles.

    All these commanders just reduce what's important--admiral Ackbar screen time.

    I loved almost all the new characters of TLJ, minor to major.

    She really captivated me. She felt like the kind of "real" Rebel commander from the OT.

    Good grief I love the Resistance plot in TLJ!

    Her character was almost as distracting to me as the space cow milk scene. Her delivery and presence totally throws me off.

    I suspect she’s going to take on a huge role in IX and that the contact she’s speaking of on the Falcon that they are headed to is her military father who was critical of the decisions related to disarmament.

    Without Leia or Holdo in IX I see D’acy becoming the senior leader and diplomat among the survivors and that she will be a bridge builder almost like Mon Mothma. She’s a theatrical actress and I like her voice. I think she’ll do great.

    As long as there are no shortage of extreme closeups of the bridge of her nose, count me in...

    And with her accent, she adds that "Core World" connection. I really liked her in TLJ. Hope to see much more of her in IX as part of the leadership circle.
