Hollywood superstar Jennifer Lawrence has really become a very popular figure in the movie industry today and, as well as getting to play some very exciting characters herself, it seems that she has also become the inspiration for characters in other movies. Simon Pegg has been talking about his new character Jaylah in Star Trek Beyond, and he has revealed that it was actually inspired by Jennifer Lawrence in Winter's Bone.
Pegg explained, "We were trying to create this very independent character. But we didn't have a name for it. So we just called it 'Jennifer Lawrence in Winter's Bone.' That's a long name. So it started getting tiring always saying, 'Well, Jennifer Lawrence in Winter's Bone is fighting here. So then we started calling her J. Law. And then she became Jaylah."
Algerian actress Sofia Boutella takes on the role of Jaylah in Star Trek Beyond, and she has spoken about her character, saying, "She is (a) quite strong, opinionated survivor that's been on her own on this planet for ages, has had to put together armour and sticks so that she can fight all the other people living there, she's basically a strong survivor."
We cannot wait to see what this new character has to add to the Star Trek franchise and we do not have too much longer to wait, with Star Trek Beyond set to hit the big screen on July 22 in both the US and the UK. Check out the Star Trek Beyond trailer, below.
