Amandla Stenberg is “obsessed” with the fight choreography in The Acolyte, the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga.

The series, set a hundred years before the Skywalker Saga, stars Stenberg as Osha, a young woman with Force sensitivity who is at the center of a murder investigation led by her former mentor, Jedi Master Sol (Lee Jung-Jae). She finds out her twin Mae (Stenberg) is the central suspect. As Stenberg told Blavity/Shadow and Act Managing Editor Trey Mangum, learning the choreography for the fights she has as Mae, especially the opening fight she has with Jedi Master Indara (Carrie-Anne Moss)

“I think our stunt team was so incredible and I was just felt really blessed to work with them and with Carrie-Anne Moss,” said Stenberg. “It’s so fun. It’s been cracking me up seeing how people are responding to her kicking the bucket that early in the show.”

“People are mad,” she continued, regarding folks’ response to Moss’ character dying so early in the series, “but I think that’s exactly what the point was, right? Like, I think that [series creator] Leslye [Headland] does a good job of doing this kind of tongue in cheek campiness that to me feels very Star Wars and I think Carrie-Anne dying was kind of a part of that. Like it was kind of a part of like having this epic cold open where you had somebody who [is] just so esteemed and beloved and doing the cheeky thing of killing them off.”

Stenberg had nothing but praise for Moss, calling her “wonderful” to work with.

“She was so kind to me and we got really close while we were working on that,” she said. “She’s like the most nonviolent, gentle, spiritual person you can imagine, which I think actually makes a lot of sense how she’s able to sort of carry that power in her body.”
