Fast & Furious 10 : Brie Larson Plays Brian O’Connor’s Sister
Brie Larson’s Tess is finally revealed in the Fast X trailer, and it supports a huge theory about her character’s connection to Brian O’Conner.
The first Fast X trailer supports a big theory about Brie Larson’s character that she’s Brian O’Conner’s sister. The Fast & Furious franchise continues to expand its cast as it speeds towards its conclusion in an impressive fashion. Fast & Furious 10 continues the trend of keeping the focus on Dominic Toretto and his family.
Still, the roster of characters connected to their lives will now include those played by Jason Momoa, Brie Larson, Alan Ritchson, Daniela Melchior, and more. This will include some surprising revelations about how they are connected to each other.
Since the Fast & Furious movies have always put an emphasis on family, the familial relationships between new characters and existing ones are something that has become more common. F9 introduced John Cena’s Jakob as Dom’s secret younger brother, while Jason Momoa’s Fast X villain appears to be related to Fast Five‘s villain. However, Brian O’Conner’s side of the family has not been explored at all ever since Paul Walker’s passing. That has not stopped theories from popping up about Brie Larson’s Fast 10 character changing that, and there could be more evidence for it now.
The Fast X trailer only includes the Captain Marvel star’s character Tess for a few small moments, but it does align with theories that Brie Larson plays Brian O’Conner’s sister in the sequel. Speculation about such a possibility began thanks to the star power that Larson brings and the believability that she and Walker look like they could be related. While Tess’ scenes in the Fast X trailer are short, she’s established as a character who Dom and Letty trust and is more than capable of taking care of herself in a fight. Both of those teases align with the idea that Brie Larson is Brian’s sister in Fast 10.
The footage might not include any other specific evidence that Brie Larson’s Fast Xcharacter’s full name is Tess O’Conner, but it still fits within the context of the film. The hint that Jason Momoa’s Dante is Reyes’ son and confirmation that Rita Moreno plays Dom’s grandmother shows how the movie is expanding different families that are important to the franchise. Not exploring more of the O’Conner family would be strange, so introducing Brian’s sister through Brie Larson’s character works.
