Additional tweets from Luzarius confirm that he was indeed making negative criticisms. I’ve added them to the piece below.
While many would agree that Janina Gavankar has proven herself to be a capable actor with a suitably intimidating look and presence — both during the EA E3 conference and in the various single-player trailers and coverage we’ve seen — others seem displeased about her portrayal of Star Wars Battlefront II‘s main character, Iden Versio.
@luzariuslive on Twitter has voiced his disapproval of Gavankar’s character, focusing his criticism on her face. He wants to be able to change it.
Unfortunately for Luzarius, there isn’t going to be any tweaking of Iden’s character model. Gavankar herself responded with this tweet:
What do you think of Iden Versio? There’s a lot of pressure on her as a Star Wars hero, and so it’s expected that Gavankar’s performance and appearance would be heavily scrutinized. With that said, let’s try and be nice about it!
Star Wars Battlefront II is set to launch November 17 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
