Day 25 – Versé and Cordé
Versé and Cordé are the first handmaidens profiled in this project from Attack of the Clones.
In the beginning of the film, we see a woman who looks like Padmé Amidala.
But this is not Padmé, it’s her handmaiden Cordé serving as her decoy. As Cordé walks down a ship ramp there’s another woman right behind her that you can barely see (circled below). This is Padmé’s handmaidens named Versé.
As the women are walking down the ramp there’s an explosion that kills both Cordé and Versé. Padmé and Cordé (played by Veronica Segura) are able to exchange a few words before Cordé dies, but we never see any more of Versé. I couldn’t find any records of the name of the actress who played Versé.
Here’s the same scene in the Prequel Trilogy Graphic Novel.
Coming tomorrow is a closer look at another handmaiden from Attack of the Clones, Dormé.
