Star Wars guest Amy Allen (Jedi Master Aayla Secura) joins our event!


Amy Allen (born October 24, 1976) is an American actress and film crew member who portrayed the JediMaster Aayla Secura in Star Wars films released in 2002 and 2005.

She worked behind the scenes on many different movies, including A.I. Artificial Intelligence, before she acted in Star Wars. A production assistant with Industrial Light & Magic at the time Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Cloneswas being filmed, Allen was selected to portray Jedi Knight Aayla Secura, a humanoid of the Twi’lek species with distinctive head tails and blue skin. The character was a last-minute addition to the Episode II script; she had been created for a licensed Star Wars comic book by Dark Horse Comics and was added to the film after Lucas saw a cover illustration of the character. Allen had previously been cast as an extra in the DVD release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace as a Twi’lek as well. She reprised her role as Aayla Secura in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Her character is killed by clone troopers as part of the Jedi Purge.
