Luna has in the spotlight lately for his role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the fact that he kept his Mexican accent for the role. One person that noticed was a fan of his Perla Nation. She decided she was going to take her dad, Pablo Perez, to see the movie so that he could see Luna speak in his accent.
“I wanted my Mexican father, with his thick Mexican accent, to experience what it was like to see a hero in a blockbuster film, speak the way he does,” she wrote in a Tumblr post. Luna tweeted her story and wrote "I got emotional reading this!"
Nation posted a video on YouTube of her dad's reaction to his fame and he had a message for Luna.
“I think what he did is extraordinary,” he says. “I like that he kept his Latino accent in the film because you can tell he’s an extraordinary artist.”
This is a moment that touched all of us because it goes to show that it's time for Hollywood to be more inclusive and accept that times are changing and we need to see actors that reflect our society and the ways it's changing.
"I started crying when I heard Diego Luna's accent and completely surpassed any known human emotion when they cut to Vader," a fan tweeted.
Three cheers for Luna continuing to embrace Spanish and his Mexican accent! Check out the whole thing go down in the video below:
