Vice-Admiral Amilyn Holdo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. She is initially introduced in the 2017 Claudia Gray novel Star Wars: Leia, Princess of Alderaan as the childhood best friend of Princess Leia Organa. Holdo and Leia first meet as teenagers when they are both enrolled in Coruscant's Apprentice Legislature, with Holdo subsequently becoming an important member of the Rebel Alliance. Holdo reappears in the 2017 film Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in which she is portrayed by Laura Dern as a member of Organa's Resistance, as well as a number of Star Wars comics. Claudia Gray's version of the character has received high acclaim from critics and fans alike, with many comparing her to the character of Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series. Rian Johnson's version in The Last Jedi has been generally well-received, particularly praising Laura Dern's performance as an older Holdo; however, some have criticized her characterization for being too different from her younger book counterpart.

In Claudia Gray's novel and comic stories, Amilyn Holdo is depicted as an eccentric yet highly intelligent and competent member of the Rebel Alliance who is often underestimated because of her quirks. She is knowledgeable of the esoteric and spiritual practices of her home planet Gatalenta, such as astrology and skyfaring (a type of meditation), and often speaks in riddles and strange metaphors (Leia refers to her distinctive speech patterns as "Holdo speak"). In terms of appearance, Holdo dyes her hair exotic colors, habitually going barefoot, and often dressing in flamboyant clothing. Gray said:

Initially, the movie version of Holdo was intended to be very close to her description in the book, described by Johnson as "hippy-dippy"; Laura Dern also compared Holdo to a hippie. However, the director thought that Dern's portrayal was "too spacy", so her character's eccentricities were significantly toned down in the final version of the script.

In a 2018 interview, Dern revealed that Holdo is Force-sensitive.
