“I just didn’t go along with the sellout narrative”: Henry Cavill’s Ex-girlfriend Gina Carano Doesn’t Regret Disney Firing Her After Making $804 in Latest Movie

Gina Carano, who played the role of Cara Dune will not be returning to The Mandalorian or the Star Wars galaxy. She was fired by Disney due to her comments on multiple political issues.

An agent confirmed that Gina Carano has also been dropped as a client by her talent agency, UTA. After the latest round of social media posts, the decision to cut ties with her came promptly as Disney was already looking for a reason to fire her.

Why Was Gina Carano Dropped?

Gina Carano played the role of a former Rebel Alliance soldier Cara Dune on the set of The Mandalorian. Over a period of time, she made multiple political remarks and comments. She mocked the mask wearers amid the Covid situation and also falsely suggested voting fraud occurred during the 2020 presidential election for Joe Biden.

She grew a huge fan following due to her role as a seasoned warrior with her experience in hand-to-hand combat. As previously she was an MMA fighter, further promoted The Mandalorian‘s streaming, and was praised for playing a perfect role suited to the character. Right after she publicized her comments these impacted the fans and followers as she became a controversial figure within the Star Wars fandom. Disney has been looking for a reason to fire her ever since.

The last straw that she broke was with her Instagram post in February 2021, where she basically compared modern-day American politics to that of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, and Disney fired her for her remarks. It was later made official through a post that the actor was removed from The Mandalorian.

It was also suggested by multiple reports that Carano was to play a significant role in Rangers of the New Republic, a spinoff series of The Mandalorian which has now been canceled. Since she was fired, Gina Carano moved on to work on a small-budget film, and Star Wars released one of the fan favorites, Andor.

Did Gina Carano ‘fumble the bag’?

While Gina Carano moved on to her next project after being fired from the Star Wars franchise, her film Terror on the Prairie was released on June 14, 2022, which premiered exclusively on The Daily Wire and made only 804 dollars at the box office.

A writer for The Hollywood Reporter, Richard Newby tweeted

to which Carano responded, also accusing the writer of joining an online mob to harass her repeatedly by trolling her. She also stated that she does not feel any remorse about being dropped from the franchise and only feels better as the days go by.

Though Gina Carano was fired from The Mandalorian in early February 2021 due to her political posts, the controversial posts resurfaced after a writer from THR commented on her latest movie Terror on the Prairie which failed at the box office.

Henry Cavill, the “Man of Steel” actor, and Carano reportedly started dating in the fall of 2012 and a source described her as a “complete crackhead”. Their relationship was not easy for them though several news reports reported they broke up and got back in 2013, and they finally broke up sometime before 2015.
