Mara Jade.

Keri Russell’s casting in Episode IX created a maelstrom of speculation and debate as to whether or not Legends fan-favorite character Mara Jade would leap from page to screen. Of course, if portrayed by Russell, this iteration would be too young to actually be the Mara Jade from the Thrawn Trilogy and other works. Still, as they did with Thrawn, they could adapt Mara’s relationship with the Skywalkers to fit the needs of Episode IX.
