Disney’s streaming service Disney+ now has a couple of live-action Starwars shows onboard. This includes our beloved The Mandalorian and untitled prequel for Rogue One: A StarWars story. This show recently added two new members to its quiver.
New members on board
Genevieve O’Reilly and Denise Gough have joined the cast of this Disney+spinoff show. They will be pairing up with lead actor Diego Luna on the show. Luna is reprising his role as Cassian Andor. Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller are also cast for the upcoming series.
“Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna
The show pivots Cassian Andor, a rebel intelligence officer in Rogue One. The show could surely be a prequel because most of the characters cropping up again were already dead in Rogue One.
Genevieve O’Reilly will be returning to her role as Mon Mothma, Republic Senator, and co-founder of Rebel Alliance, who opposed the Empire. The character initially was played by Caroline Blakiston in Return of the Jedi. Subsequently, Genevieve took that role over. She played Mon Mothma in Revenge of Sith and Rogue One. Also, she delivered the voice for the same on animated series, Star Wars: Rebels.
On the other hand, Denise Gough, known for her roles in The Kid Who Would Be King, The Other Lamb, also joined the cast. Moreover, She won an Olivier Award for her performance in a revival of Angels in America. Details of her role in the series are still unknown.
From Writer to Showrunner
And for the crew, Tony Gilroy is now show-running the series. Moreover, he is already aboard as a writer alongside Dan Gilroy, Beau Willimon, and Schiff. Also, Gilroy is possibly going to direct the Pilot.
