Felicity Jones: Anton Yelchin's death was devastating
Felicity Jones has admitted coming to terms with Anton Yelchin's death has been "devastating".
The 32-year-old actress starred alongside the late actor in the 2011 film 'Like Crazy', and had formed a close friendship with the 27-year-old star - whom she called a "unique soul" - until his untimely death in June this year when his Jeep Cherokee rolled down the driveway of is LA home and crushed him against a gate.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter magazine, Felicity said: "It's been devastating. It doesn't feel like there's any justice or there's no way of understanding it, really. It's just been a very difficult time for his family. They're very dignified, beautiful people. He was just like no one else. He really was a unique soul."
The 'Inferno' star joins a long list of stars who have paid tribute to the late actor, with 'Star Trek' co-star Chris Pine having spoken out in tribute to Anton at the screening of 'Star Trek Beyond'.
He said: "This has been a very difficult tour, because we recently lost a good friend of ours who is in the film, and it feels so weird to have to go out and sell this film after the loss of someone very close. We'll miss him greatly."
And for Felicity - who has recently been filming re-shoots for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' in which she stars as Jyn Erso - her film roles have given her a chance to focus her energy on something else, in an attempt to move on from her grieving.
The beauty admitted that there's "nothing unusual" about filming re-shoots even for productions like 'Star Wars', and she understands the need to put the costumes back on after the edit.
She said: "I'm sure if you picked up the phone and called every single large, technical movie and said, 'You ever gone in and done reshoots?' they'd all say, 'Oh God, yes.' So why has it turned into a big story? Because it's 'Star Wars', and they put a spotlight and scrutinise every single thing that gets done. But it was always planned and nothing unusual."
"Obviously when you come to the edit, you see the film come together and you think, 'Actually, we could do this better, and this would make more sense if we did this. I've done it so many times. I mean, you wouldn't just give your first draft on this story, would you?"
