Considering Ahsoka Tano’s major role to play in Star Wars Rebels, it always made sense that more characters from that show would show up for her live-action solo series. While much of the attention has been on Ezra Bridger, THR confirms that Lucasfilm is also on the hunt for an actress to play Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren. Furthermore, we may have an idea who is on their radar.
Now take this next bit with a grain of salt considering the source. Cinelinx writer Jordan Maison and Slashfilm’s Adam Frazier say To All the Boys star Lana Condor, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s Tati Gabrielle, and model/actress Havana Rose Liu, who was really good in Mayday earlier this year, are being eyed to play Sabine Wren. All of the actresses are of Asian heritage.
Sabine Wren was part of Ahsoka’s mission to locate the missing Ezra, so it makes sense for her to be part of the Ahsoka series, too. As for this group of possible contenders, all of them are incredibly talented, but personally I’d love to see Gabrielle get this shot. She was a constant scene-stealer on Sabrina and would be a great addition to the Star Wars universe.
