EW is back again, for their third day of Solo: A Star Wars Story coverage. This time they are taking a look at a few of the outlaws in the movie. This includes Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett, Thandie Newton’s Val, and Paul Bettany’s Dryden Vos. Check out a few snippets of information from the article below, and then take the source link at the bottom of the page to read the entire write-up about the three characters.
Howard says Beckett is “such a charismatic character.” And he does have a soft spot, choosing not to end this wannabe smuggler to tries to ingratiate himself.
“She’s tied to Beckett, that’s how Han meets Val,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “They’ve been partners a long time.”
“It’s a sort of combination of class and swagger and real danger which I think is a fun thing, and he absolutely inhabits it,” says Jon Kasdan. “He’s way deeper in the crime world than anyone else that we meet in the movie.”
