Kelly Marie Tran revealed she almost quit acting before being cast in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. About a year before she got the part Tran almost quit acting due to the long, grueling days.“I had been working 40-plus hours a week, plus sometimes I’d have two auditions in the day and then I would write a sketch or do improv at night, or rehearse for the next auditions the next day. So, my days, I would get up at 5 a.m. and then I wouldn’t be home until 11:00 p.m.
