'Star Wars' Star Kelly Marie Tran’s Instagrams About Suddenly Becoming Famous Are So Freaking Cute
You've surely heard of the latest Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is set to be released Dec. 15. And if you're looking forward to the film, then you really need to acquaint yourself with Kelly Marie Tran's Instagram. Not only is this Tran's first major movie ever, but the 28-year-old actor, who plays Rose, is the first Asian-American woman to score a leading role in a Star Wars movie, according to Entertainment Weekly. She is pretty fantastic, which is proven in her Instagram account. Basically, you need to follow her — stat.
Tran is relatively new to the social media platform and shared her first post on Oct. 6. She only has 26 Instagram posts (as of the publication of this story), but despite her being a rookie, you would never know it. She has already figured out how to attract followers through her amazing photos and lengthy captions. Regarding the latter, Tran accompanies most every image with at least a paragraph. That might be a turn off for many, but before you write off Tran's Instagram completely, you need to read what she has to say. After only reading through one of her captions, you will quickly become a fan.
Tran "avoided public social media for a long time purely because I was afraid," she revealed next to a selfie of herself with no filter and without makeup on Instagram Oct. 15. She wrote, "I was terrified of being picked apart, of being scrutinized, of being seen. It took me a year of self-work — and some really amazing, supportive friends — to make me realize that it's none of my business if people like me or not. It doesn't change my goals, my dreams, what I want to do with the opportunities I've been given." You can read the rest of her uplifting caption below.
Do you already see why her Instagram is so great? She somehow inspires with every single photo she decides to share with the world.
Becoming this famous isn't something she ever expected, and she's still getting used to it. As Tran told People in October, "I just still can’t believe it’s all happening. I keep having to remind myself that I’m in a movie. I’ll just go to LA Fitness and go to Ralph’s and go to the grocery store — and nobody knows who I am. Then I come to these events and I’m living this weird Hannah Montana life."
Tran is a treasure in all areas of life, but especially on Instagram. And here's why you must follow her immediately.
