Alderaanian by birth, and a major player for the original Rebel Alliance by the time of the Battle of Endor, spirited and formidable 'ground pounder' shock trooper Cara Dune delivered payback to the Galactic Empire for the destruction of her home and peoples. But the war is not over, as the building fractions of the surviving Empire are destined to secretly coalesce, and Dune's unique place in the next conflict is re-established in all-new ways.
An inspired piece of casting for this next chapter of Star Wars storytelling on Disney+ television, and no stranger to physical action, be it as an American Gladiator/ martial arts superstar, or in her role as a lethal spy on the run in Steven Soderberg's all-style modern action thriller, Haywire (where she certainly made an interesting first impression on this writer), Gina Carano is a most welcome continuing presence on the gritty and exciting The Mandalorian.
