Felicity Jones Opens Up About Co-Star Anton Yelchin's 'Devastating' Death: 'He Was Like No One Else'
By Jennifer Drysdale
Nearly four months after Anton Yelchin's tragic death, Felicity Jones is still reeling from the loss.
The 32-year-old actress opens up in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, revealing how difficult it was to lose her close friend and Like Crazy co-star, who died in June after his car pinned him against a gate in the driveway of his L.A. home.
"It's been devastating. It doesn't feel like there's any justice or there's no way of understanding it, really," she shares before revealing that she became close with Yelchin's family after they shared the screen.
"It's just been a very difficult time for his family. They're very dignified, beautiful people," she adds. "He was just like no one else. He really was a unique soul."
Five years after she and Yelchin starred as a couple in the Sundance darling, Jones is preparing for the release her biggest film yet -- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And while the highly-anticipated film has concerned the masses with its recent reshoots, Jones says there's nothing to fear.
"Obviously when you come to the edit, you see the film come together and you think, 'Actually, we could do this better, and this would make more sense if we did this,'" she explains. "I've done it so many times."
ET caught up with Jones at Comic-Con in July, where she dished all about her role in the Star Wars film -- and delivering one of the franchise's iconic lines.
"I have to say it was one of those moments that I was really nervous about for weeks before," she admitted of tackling the famous "May the Force be with us." "I kept walking around my house just trying out the line."
"I'd just be in the bathroom and be like, 'May the force be with you. May the force be with you. May the force be with you,'" she added. "You just go over and over and over again because I knew it was such a momentous moment for the film."
