《NATALIE PORTMAN/PADMÉ AMIDALA WEEK》
From her childhood she showed interest in learning other languages and studied French, Japanese, German, Hebrew and Arabic. During her student years she co-authored two research papers published in scientific journals. In 1998, an article of her - entitled "A Simple Method to Demonstrate the Enzymatic Production of Hydrogen from Sugar" - participated in a science competition in which she was selected as a semifinalist . In 2002, during her Harvard years, she contributed to a study of memory called "Activation of the frontal lobe during object permanence". In May of 2015 the actress spoke at the American University of Harvard an emotional address addressed to the recent graduates, which encouraged them to assume their own inexperience, insecurities and ignorance to take risks and achieve goals unimaginable for them.
Although prodigiously talented, Padmé was not the Queen of Naboo younger to be never chosen. Her native name was Padmé Naberrie; Amidala was, in fact, a real name. In her appearance as Queen Amidala, she acted with bearing, was real and austere; but like Padmé, she was a trial and compassionate. During her two periods as Queen, and later as senator, Padmé had an entourage of expert maidens, who were young women of similar age and with skills to strike similar to those of Padmé. These maidens served as bodyguards, decoys and confidants to their mistress. These roles were assigned by the Chief of Security of Amidala, Captain Panaka, who insisted that the Queen should be an expert in personal defense and using different types of weapons. In her periods as queen, the maidens of Amidala were Sabé, Rabé, Eirtaé, Yané and Saché. During her period as Senator, the maidens of Padmé were Dormé, Cordé, Versé and, later, Moteé and Ellé. Once elected Queen, Padmé took the name Amidala, and reformed the Constitution to limit the government of the elected monarchs in only two periods, emphasizing their opposition to the tyrannical and indefinite government of Veruna.
