Laura Dern Wants a ‘Blue Velvet’ Lego Figurine

Laura Dern Wants a 'Blue Velvet' Lego FigurineEntertainment

Laura Dern is having quite the Dernaissance: From an Emmy nom for her scene-stealing role on Big Little Lies to her crucial arc on the Twin Peaks revival to her upcoming purple-haired role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the veteran actress is everywhere.

But there’s one thing Dern wants that she doesn’t have — a Blue Velvet Lego minifigure.

Following Thursday’s reveal of Lego’s new Last Jedi sets, many fans were thrilled to learn that there will now be a Dern Star Wars figurine, depicting her Resistance officer Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo.

A Lego version of Dern’s Jurassic Park character, scientist Ellie Sattler, already exists. While many fans were thrilled to live in a world that has two Dern Lego figures, the actress isn’t stopping there.

“Wait, where’s my Blue Velvet one?” Dern tweeted alongside a photo of her two Lego doppelgängers, jokingly referring to her star-making role in David Lynch’s 1986 film.

The tongue-in-cheek tweet is the latest of Dern’s sly references to her place in the pop culture canon, following her July discovery that she is a popular internet meme.

And while we don’t deserve a world with more Laura Dern Legos, we heartily support her suggestion. If they do ever make a Blue Velvet Lego set,  we know just the facial expression for it:
