For The Enduring Love of Padme

Her name is Padme Naberrie of Naboo. She was not the youngest ever elected Queen at the age of 14, but her terms were very important.

In her early days as Queen, the planet Naboo was blockaded by the rogue Trade Federation and she had to be protected by two Jedi Knights. They narrowly escaped the blockade but had to crash land on the Outer Rim planet Tatooine. While there, she met a young slave boy named, Anakin Skywalker.

It would be ~10 years before she saw him again. She would meet him as a Jedi  Padawan Learner, who was guided by his master, Obi-Wan Kenobi.  On Galactic Capital Core planet, Coruscant, she was the Senator Padme Amidala from Naboo, and she strongly opposed the “Military Creation Act”  supported by Chancellor Palpatine. Because of her strong opposition, she became the target of several assassination attempts. For her safety, she was sent to her homeworld, Naboo escorted by Padawan Anakin Skywalker.

While on Naboo, something happened between them:  They fell in love.

Anakin’s burning passion for her poured out from his soul finally. It was illogical and Jedi were not supposed to love.  But after Geonosis, they were secretly married on Naboo.

Then, the Clone Wars started, and while she fought in the Senate and in the field, she tried to keep their love life a secret. It was difficult to do, and it even forced Anakin to hide underneath her desk in her Senate Office. Somehow their love managed to pull through it.

Faced with many pressures and forces, such as the Confederacy of Independent Systems or Separatists and even General Grievous himself,  their love endured!  Even being captured by Count Dooku, their love endured!  However, over time her fears for Anakin’s safety became overwhelming; but learning about his safety came at a price.

The war, unfortunately, is far from over…

EnActress’ note:

For me, being “Padme Amidala Skywalker” on Facebook is a dream come true. She is my childhood hero and I dreamed of being just like her:  Beautiful, Strong, Powerful, Kind, and Noble.

I have grown into that kind of woman and am honored to be able to portray such admirable qualities through SWAG 77. I hope to inspire and be a good role model and influential for others as “Padme” was for me.

While there are several other Facebook Fan Pages of the character “Padme Amidala Skywalker”, I think what makes mine special  is how much I know about my character, how I relate to my character, and how much I can express myself through my character when I post.

Playing, “Padme” has inspired me in so many ways in my life, and being her for SWAG 77 is like my personal way of thanking Mr. George Lucas for giving me a worthy role model.
