Ron Howard is Proud of Daughter Bryce Dallas Howard’s Star Wars Work

In an exclusive interview, actor-director Ron Howard shares how proud he is of his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard’s work in Star Wars television.

Actor-director Ron Howard shares how proud he is of his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard’s work in Star Wars. Ron began his career in acting as a child before transitioning to work behind the camera where he has arguably has had a more successful career. He has directed many fan favorites films such as Backdraft, Apollo 13, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and A Beautiful Mind, where he won the Academy Awards for both Best Director and Best Picture. The director also managed to score his own Star Wars film with Solo: A Star Wars Story, which told the origin of Han Solo and Chewbacca’s partnership. Ron will serve as executive producer for the upcoming series Under the Banner of Heaven, a true crime drama about a murder within the Mormon church based on the Jon Krakauer nonfiction book of the same name. The series is set to debut on Hulu April 28.

Bryce followed her father’s footsteps by beginning her career as an actor before slowly taking a more active role behind the camera as a director. Although the star continues to act, she has directed short films, documentaries, and television. Bryce has since directed an episode in each of The Mandalorian seasons, and one episode in The Book of Boba Fett. All three episodes have been well-received by fans and critics alike, with Bryce’s Boba Fett episode, “The Return of the Mandalorian,” frequently singled out as the best episode of the series.

In an exclusive interview with Screen Rant to promote Under the Banner of Heaven, Ron shared how proud he is of Bryce’s directorial work within Star Wars television. When asked about how he feels about what his daughter has done for Star Wars, Ron responded with nothing but praise for Bryce and her work ethic. Read what the director said below.

“She works hard at it. She always has. She’s been directing for about 10 or 11 years here and there, but working with Jon Favreau, working with Dave Filoni… She loves the galaxy … She’s got a good heart. She’s super bright and she’s a warrior in the workplace, in the best kind of way.”

Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are two of the major creative forces behind both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, as well as future planned live-action Star Wars shows such as Ahsoka. With Bryce’s episodes so well-liked, viewers have called upon her to continue working on the multiple series as well as going so far as demanding her to direct her own Star Wars film. Bryce has more than proven her ability with her work for The Mandalorian and Boba Fett. Although the director has not revealed whether or not she will be participating in the upcoming Ahsoka series, she has said that fans are in for a treat.

Choosing Bryce as a director for the multiple Star Wars television shows seems like an obvious choice due to her resume, life-long proximity to great directors and creators, and self-proclaimed high-level of knowledge of Star Wars due to her father being close friends with George Lucas while he was creating the original Star Wars films. She even spent time on Lucas’ prequel set due to her friendship with Natalie Portman, absorbing more Star Wars information to be used on later work with Filoni and Favreau. With Bryce’s current successes as a director, coupled with her continued work as an actor in films like Rocketman and the Jurassic World franchise, it is no wonder Ron would have nothing but pride in such an accomplished daughter.
