Happy Mother’s Day! I hope all you space moms had a wonderful day. I was fortunate to be able to spend the day with my mom and daughter, something I know isn’t possible for many people around the world right now.
My mom has always been incredibly supportive, and now I’m supporting my daughter as she begins her career journey – as an aspiring actress, she spent part of the day on-set filming a scene for a local television series. She grew up with Star Wars, and the leading ladies inspired her to pursue acting – we got to meet Carrie Fisher together a few times. We have both costumed as Princess Leia and Padme’ Amidala so those characters are very special to us both.
Whether you have children (or fur kids) of your own, or you find inspiration from the mothers in Star Wars, I wish you all the very best – and May the Force be with you always.
