If you just finished watching Star Wars The Last Jedi you are asking questions. As soon you saw the “purple haired lady” that replace Princess Leia, when she is in surgery, you are left wondering where you have seen that woman. Who is that actress? Where do I know her from? The character is Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo and the actress is Laura Dern. You likely know her from Big Little Lies on HBO, Jurassic Park (the original movie), Twin Peaks and several other popular TV shows and movies.
