Felicity Jones has a fan in Diego Luna.

Luna stopped by the PEOPLE Now Studio recently, where he opened up about starring alongside Jones in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

“She’s great. I like her work and I like the way she approaches her work,” he says in the exclusive video. “She’s very committed, doesn’t stop, she’s questioning things all the time. It’s very fun.”

In the film, Luna and Jones fight alongside each other as members of the Rebel Alliance team. And while they worked to keep each other alive in the film, he says they also had a sense of camaraderie off screen as well.

“The pressure was a lot,” he explains of joining the Star Wars franchise. “She helped me.”
