Rosario Dawson Talks Becoming Ahsoka Tano for ‘The Mandalorian’

“It’s really cool to see her still out there on quests and having things teased about that world still being very much alive.”

With the world still digesting her stunning debut in The Mandalorian‘s thirteenth chapter, Rosario Dawson has opened up about slipping into the Togruta facepaint of Ahsoka Tano. In an interview with starwars.com, the actor discussed all things Tano and revealed how the role came to her and whether she’ll return in the future…

Here’s an excerpt:

“I’m just really glad that she lived, that we’ve been able to continue growing with her. I think that she’s so special,” she says. “So many of the wonderful, awesome Jedi that we love and have gotten their stories told, are male, and you saw them older. When you got to see Anakin grow up it made such a huge difference. I think as people grew with her and aged with her and the story, they grew themselves and evolved. I think it gives complexity to good and bad and right and wrong in a way that we don’t always get to have story-wise. It’s just fantasy. And I think she represents something stronger than that, about will and determination and audacity and tenacity. She really has pushed herself and evolved in a way that I think her heroine story is one that is not easy to find in other spaces. It’s really cool to see her still out there on quests and having things teased about that world still being very much alive.”

Against all the odds, Dawson turned in a noteworthy performance as our beloved Togruta and she deserves all the love and admiration we can muster. Filling the shoes of the tenacious Ashley Eckstein is a difficult task – one that Dawson met with determination and vigor, and we can only hope she returns to the live-action galaxy far, far away sooner rather than later.
