ACTOR Diego Luna became a household name thanks to his memorable portrayal of Resistance agent Cassian Andor in 2016 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The positive fan response to Luna’s character spurred Disney to bring him back into the gritty prequel series Andor, which focused on his origins. Luna herself agreed to return to the role as he felt there was more to the story of people like Cassian becoming martyrs to the cause.
In an interview with Variety, Luna said, “What this character does Villain One is quite remarkable and what we are building shows what has to happen in a person’s life to be willing to sacrifice everything.
“For me, this has always been a story where the people who bring about change, who can be called heroes, are ordinary people doing extraordinary things.”
While he said he’s proud to be able to contribute to the story of such a unique character, he looks forward to completing the series’ grueling filming schedule.
The series will have a total of 24 episodes that took almost a year of production and months of post-production to film. Filming for Season 2 began last November and is nearing completion.
“There’s no time for the hangover,” he told Variety. “You wake up the next morning and there’s always something to do.”
He added, “It’s just a two-season show that’s really important to my mental health. But knowing this is the end, I want to enjoy it and get the most out of this experience.”
Luna once said that about his stint Andor is over, he plans to take a short break from acting to “recover” and hopes to return to acting for a short while.
He said: “One other thing I love about theater is that you sleep in the same bed every night.”
