Felicity Jones is an English actress who has appeared in numerous films and television shows throughout her career. She has been nominated for several awards, including an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in The Theory of Everything. Jones is also known for her role as Jyn Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Felicity Jones played Jyn Erso, the protagonist in the 2016 Star Wars film Rogue One. Jyn is a former criminal who is recruited by the Rebel Alliance to lead a team to steal the plans for the Death Star, a superweapon capable of destroying entire planets. Throughout the film, Jyn grows as a leader and believes in the Rebel cause, ultimately sacrificing herself to ensure the mission’s success. The actress has provided an update on whether her character will return in future projects.
Will Jyn Erso Return To Star Wars Universe
In 2016, Felicity Jones burst onto the Hollywood scene as Jyn Erso, the lead character in what many consider one of the finest Star Wars movies ever made. However, despite her excellent performance, Jyn’s fate was sealed, and she perished before the credits rolled.
However, with the success of Andor, which explores the backstory of Diego Luna’s character from Rogue One before his demise, there’s speculation that Felicity Jones might return to the Star Wars universe.
The actress recently spoke about the possibility of her return to the Star Wars franchise during her appearance on BBC’s The One Show while promoting her latest film, Dead Shot. Despite her character’s death in Rogue One, Jones has been discussing the potential for her to reprise her role in the popular franchise, sparking rumors among fans.
How Can Felicity Jones’ Character Make A Comeback
One of the most speculated possibilities for Felicity Jones’ return to the Star Wars franchise is the potential appearance of her character Jyn Erso in the upcoming second season of Andor. Fans are eager to see if Jyn will make a comeback and if her storyline will continue in the popular Disney+ series.

Jones revealed during her appearance on BBC’s The One Show that she wouldn’t be appearing in the second season of Andor, but expressed her desire for her character to make a comeback in the future potentially.
“I’m afraid to say I won’t be, but I still have hope for Jyn Erso at some point to make a comeback. But no, sadly I won’t be.”
Unfortunately, including Jyn Erso in the second season of Andor would pose a challenge, as she doesn’t cross paths with Cassian Andor until the events of Rogue One, making any interaction prior to that unlikely.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is available for streaming on Disney+.
