Moses Ingram channels power when it comes to traffic lights.
The ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ actress revealed on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ that before filming she almost unknowingly got into an accident while on the road with co-star Ewan McGregor on her way to ‘Jedi School’.
“At the training facility that we were at, there are about three red lights before you actually get to the facility,” Ingram said during the May 31 episode. “So one day I’m riding and I’m behind this bike and me when I see a yellow light it means green but brighter.”
The bike next to Ingram stopped at the yellow light, but Ingram decided to go around the bike, with both riders standing side-by-side at the third and final light.
“I pull into the facility and the bike is still behind me and I’m like, ‘Oh god, they don’t want a problem,'” Ingram explained, adding that she was worried about a confrontation over her reckless driving. Turns out McGregor was the one behind the motorcycle helmet – much like Hayden Christensen is under the Darth Vader mask.
Ingram joked that she skipped off to her COVID test to avoid embarrassment, while McGregor simply said “Good morning” as if nothing was wrong. It looks like these Obi-Wan Kenobi co-stars could be the best for a Star Wars-meets-Fast and Furious spinoff.
McGregor also recently defended Ingram, who plays antagonistic Jedi hunter Sith Inquisitor Reva, against racist “Star Wars” trolls who sent targeted messages to her after the series premiered on May 27.
“Moses is a brilliant actor, she’s a brilliant woman, and she’s absolutely amazing on this show,” McGregor said in a Twitter video shared on June 1. “I just want to say, as a lead actor on the show, as an executive producer on the line, we stand with Moses.”
Adding that the racist slurs and toxic messages Ingram shared “just broke my heart,” McGregor said, “We love Moses and if you’re sending her bullying messages, I don’t think you’re a ‘star Wars’ fan. There is no place for racism in this world.”
The official Star Wars site similarly published a expression: “There are more than 20 million sentient species in the Star Wars galaxy, don’t choose to be a racist.”
