‘Yesterday’ Cut An Entire Character From The Film That Would Have Changed The Plot

Seems like we won’t be seeing Ana’s character, Roxanne, on the current cut from Yesterday! Here’s why:

That was a very traumatic cut, because she was brilliant in it. I mean really radiant. And [that] turned out to be the problem. … I think the audience likes the story [about Ellie and Jack] and goes with that, and it works out well. What we’d originally done was had, I don’t want to describe it too much, but had Ana De Armas as a complicating factor when he arrived in L.A. for the first time. And I think the audience did not like the fact that his eyes even strayed. Because then some people would go, ‘Oh, he really doesn’t deserve her. He really doesn’t deserve Lily.’ You know, it’s one of those things where it’s some of our favorite scenes from the film, but we had to cut them for the sake of the whole.

Hopefully the cut-out version will be out too and we can see Ana’s character in full!
