Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen is, as they say, one of us. She’s been embedded in geek culture for the better part of a decade, starring in the Batman animated series and Stargate: Universe before joining the throng of Marvel Studios cast members.

Also, she’s a huge Star Wars fan.

Wen may not be in Star Wars (yet), but this weekend she provided the perfect tool to imagine her as a Jedi knight. Posting a photo of herself holding a lightsaber in front of a green screen, she asked fans to Photoshop her into the world of Star Wars.

Fans have replied with all sorts of scenarios, from ominous Sith poses to the middle of the final lightsaber battle in The Phantom Menace.

(Sorry, this embed was not found.)

Wen looks more intimidating in a black cocktail dress than most people would in full body armor. Surely there’s room for her in one of the upcoming Star Wars movies, right?
