They could’ve gotten a more attractive “ethnic” lead in Rogue One.

I thought he was French btw. I didn’t realize that he was Mexican with a Celtic side. Wtf…

diego luna would’ve been my dream girl, I wish he was female so we could make incredible love under the moon and the stars, kissing deeply and holding each other, drifting into sweet dreams and waking up gazing at one another.

“diegonita, I will always love you. I will hold on tight and never let you go.”

diego luna RIP
