Katee Sackhoff, the actress behind Bo-Katan in The Mandalorian, says the character is very important to the show’s story.
Last Friday, hardcore Star Wars fans got a bit treat when Bo-Katan – a character from previous animated shows like Star Wars: Clone Wars – made her live-action debut.
Katee Sackhoff voiced the character in her previous animated appearances and returned to the role to play the important Mandalorian leader in the third episode of the Disney+ flagship series.
Bo-Katan is looking to retake the Mandalorian homeworld once she has grabbed the Darksaber back from villain Moff Gideon. But how important will Bo-Katan be to The Mandalorian‘s future storyline?
Speaking to ET, the actress said: “I’m excited to see what everybody thinks because she truly is so special. And she’s been such a pivotal character in this world and she’s so important to the story in Mandalorian.”
It certainly sounds like Bo-Katan is more than a one-off cameo in The Mandalorian. Hopefully, we see her again soon, perhaps this season and next year for season three.
The Mandalorian season two sees Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin), Gina Carano (Cara Dune), Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon) and Bill Burr (Mayfield) joined by new cast additions Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones), Katee Sackhoff (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Michael Biehn (The Terminator) and WWE Superstar Sasha Banks.
The Mandalorian season two airs on Fridays on Disney+.
