The long-awaited live-action debut of Ahsoka Tano finally happened in the latest episode of The Mandalorian. One of the most influential female characters in Star Wars is portrayed on the small screen by actress Rosario Dawson. In an extended interview with Vanity Fair, Dawson talked about the long process that brought her to portray Anakin Skywalker’s former Padawan in live-action (via SuperHeroHype).
It took a while before she got the call from Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, The Mandalorian producers. Given the importance of the Star Wars Universe character, the creative duo had to ponder the casting.
The producers called Dawson right before the series’ debut, showing the actress some concept art as Ahsoka. When it came to the moment, Filoni felt that the choice was the right one.
Hayden Christensen portrayed Anakin Skywalker in the prequel trilogy. He and Dawson went to the same acting school, Strasberg, and happened to have the same class. Apparently, they bonded, and fans are still dreaming of seeing them together on the screen as Ahsoka and Anakin. In the meantime, you can check the official photos from the latest episode of the show in the gallery below.
