Mon Mothma is coming to the Disney Plus Cassian Andor series as Genevieve O’Reilly joins the cast, repeating her role for the third time after Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. She’s joined by Olivier Award winning actress Denise Gough in an as-yet-unknown role, and last weeks news of Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller is confirmed.
The actor who portrayed Mon Mothma in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is among four new cast members just announced for the live-action Cassian Andor series coming to Disney+.
Star Diego Luna will be joined by Genevieve O’Reilly, who will reprise her role as Mon Mothma (Rogue One, Tin Can), as well as newly-announced co-stars Stellan Skarsgard (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Good Will Hunting), Denise Gough (Collett, Angels in America) and Kyle Soller (Anna Karenina, The Titan).
Tony Gilroy, who co-wrote Rogue One, will write, direct and serve as showrunner for the series, which takes place five years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Additional writers on the series include Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler), Beau Willimon (House of Cards), and Stephen Schiff (The Americans).
A release date for the series has not yet been announced.
