98% #OutOf100: Dancing Suzann McLean Returns In Expanded BUPA UK Commercial in #ForLiving Campaign

Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi follows on from the events of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens (2015), which left Rey (Daisy Ridley) taking Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and the Millennium Falcon to come face to face at last with the uber-reclusive Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Finn (John Boyega) was unconscious in the rebel med facility and General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher, RIP) was grieving, but regrouping with Commander Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), BB8 and the rest of the Rebel Alliance. We are still in mourning for the loss of a major character (Han Solo – Harrison Ford),...
