*THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI*
Ever notice how every group has that one friend that sort of takes the brunt of everyone’s jokes? That seemed to be the way Domhall Gleeson’s General Hux was treated by The First Order in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Well, it sounds like Gleeson is responsible for a small moment that reiterates that he’s still a threat, even when he’s being tossed around by everyone.
Toward the end of the film, there is a scene where General Hux finds an unconscious Kylo Ren, and sees an opportunity to rid his life of the likes of Ren, he reaches into his coat and appears to be pulling out a weapon. Kylo wakes up before he can Hux’s chance is gone. Gleeson recently appeared on an episode of The IMDb Studio and gave some interesting insight into the scene.
“That was the one moment I asked Rian for in the movie, yeah. I asked him for a moment that would do something like that. Because, General Hux is like a kicked dog for the whole movie, he just keeps on getting thrown into stuff, bullied. I was like, I wouldn’t like people to forget that he’s also a really nasty piece of work and could have an effect on the way things move forward. We talked a bit about where the right place would be and we came up with that.”
Hux didn’t rise through the ranks of The First Order by by being the kid who gets his lunch money taken, I really appreciate the thought Gleeson put into this as I feel his reasoning is spot on, and looking back at how Hux was treated in The Last Jedi, fans do need a reminder of who General Hux, and that he has done horrible things to get where he’s at.
