Dante Basco, the 44-year-old Filipino-American actor known for his roles in Hook and Avatar: The Last Airbender, can talk your ear off about Star Wars.
Not only because he’s a fan (and voiced Jai Kell in the animated series Star Wars Rebels), but because other fans often bring it up.
“I’ve gotten, ‘You’re Kylo Ren’ since Kylo Ren came out,” Basco says.
Dante Basco’s popular character “Zuko” in ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ has been compared favorably to Kylo Ren from the ‘Star Wars’ franchise.
“When Crazy Rich Asians came out, a lot of people in the community would refer to The Debut,” Basco remembers.
