Questioned by the american website on the special relationship between the two heroes, the actor has confirmed that no romantic history between them was not planned : “Personally, I would have hoped and liked this to be explored in more depth in the movies, but I don’t have the control. It seemed to me to be a natural progression, unfortunately, it was a time when people were still too afraid of… I don’t know what.”

But the fans of a couple Finn/Poe assured, if it should not, therefore, see the light of day on the screen, J. J. Abrams has promised that the community LGBTQ will not be forgotten : “It was important for me that people go see this film and feel represented.” How ? With who ?
