“Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” star Sophia Lillis says it was a dream come true to be a part of the tabletop game-based movie … because she’s been rollin’ d20s for quite a few years now.
We got the actress Thursday at LAX — hours before her new movie with Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and Regé-Jean Page opened wide in theaters — and she told us there wasn’t a whole lotta prep for her role because she’s pretty well-versed in the RPG.
Sophia says she was part of a D&D club back in high school, so casting her was a perfect fit. That being said, she says the cast did play together ahead of shooting, and despite her experience … she says one of her costars took the crown.
We also talked to her about the categories people often lump D&D players into, and she believes the movie will broaden that view … even for those who’ve never played a D&D campaign.
Here’s hopin’ some people will leave the theater as brand-new dungeon masters!
