Poe Dameron is a character in the Star Wars franchise played by Oscar Isaac. Since his introduction in Star Wars: The Force Awakens he has become the focus of considerable speculation about his sexuality due to Isaac's implication in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that he was playing Poe's relationship with Finn (John Boyega) as a romance. The slash ship Finn/Poe rapidly became one of the most popular slash ships in the Star Wars universe and even gained considerable attention from mainstream media sources.
