Andor Character Guide: Meet the Cast of Star Wars Andor!

The victory of The Mandalorian and the success of the last season of The Clone Wars have given Star Wars television more hope than ever before that it can stop the Empire.

Andor, which stars Diego Luna as Cassian Andor and takes place about five years before the well-received Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is one of the most anticipated Star Wars TV shows coming to Disney+.

Fans have been excited while they wait for more information because that movie is popular as a Star Wars spinoff and will be shown on Disney+. On Wednesday, September 21, 2022, fans could start streaming the new Star Wars spin-off series. Rogue One writer and director Tony Gilroy is in charge of the show.

But in case anyone is curious about where else they might have seen all of the returning actors and actresses and all of the new faces joining the franchise for the next spy thriller, let’s take a closer look at who plays who in the Andor cast.

Diego Luna (Cassian Andor)

This Rogue One prequel story wouldn’t be complete without Cassian Andor himself, played by Diego Luna. He was one of the first actors attached to the project when it was announced in 2018, which is great because fans might have rioted if they had changed the cast.

Mexico. In 2022, he gave his voice to the DC League of Super-Pets cast, which made him kind of a part of the DC Universe.

Genevieve O’Reilly (Mon Mothma)

Mon Mothma’s legacy in Star Wars is made up of three movies and two episodes of the TV show. In Return of the Jedi, the role was played by Caroline Blakiston. Genevieve O’Reilly wore the robes in Revenge of the Sith and made a surprise appearance in Rogue One. She also voiced the character in Star Wars Rebels.

Stellan Skarsgård (Luthen)

Stellan Skarsgard, who is the father of a Swedish acting family, has been a reliable addition to any production for a long time, whether it’s an art house drama or a genre-based blockbuster.

Having him join the Star Wars world as Luthen is surely a blessing. Who is seen talking to Cassian about a box he stole from the Empire in the teaser for the show?
