Playing one of Queen Amidala’s all-star squad of handmaidens, she later told Entertainment Weekly that it was a dream come true to work with Natalie Portman.

I got to work with Natalie. I’m such a fan of her and her work. She’s my age, and she was so lovely to me. I only had one line. “I’m worried about you, my lady, go back to the Capitol,” or something like that. I worked heavily, months and months of work, with various acting coaches. It was a lot of work, but me and George, we got there in the end.

Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, a 2002 American epic space-opera film directed by George Lucas, was filmed in 2000 when Rose Byrne was 21-years-old.

In June 2013, Rose Byrne attended the premiere of ‘I Give It a Year’ in London wearing the popular “Dolly” pumps from Charlotte Olympia.

The beautiful brunette paired her black-and-gold detailed heels with a soft and flowing peach-coral-toned dress by Balenciaga, Dana Rebecca jewelry, and an ivory clutch by Thale Blanc. Her soft curled hairstyle and rosy cheeks finished the look perfectly!

The ‘Dolly’ pumps are available in several color options at Net-A-Porter, but Rose made the perfect choice by going with the black-and-gold version.

She could have opted for a coordinating pair of evening shoes, but the gold platform of this style added the ideal touch of Hollywood glam. The black suede juxtaposed the lightness of her gown perfectly.
