The GXW crew are so happy to welcome Nalini Krishan to the show for a 2 part "Interview with a Jedi".

For us, Nalini is best known for her role as Barriss Offee in "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones". While visiting family she was kind enough to take time out of her schedule and chat with us.

Don't miss this wonderful talk where we discuss:

- Getting the role of Barriss Offee.

- What it was like at the after party and talking to George Lucas.

- Her attachement to the character she plays, especially with her resurgance in The Clone Wars.

- The challenges she has faced with type casting.

This is just part one of the interview. Part two will be released next week, so don't miss out!

We did have some issue with audio. I hope you can forgive us.
