Julia Jones joins one of the most interesting casts in recent memory, bringing her character Omera to the first, eight episode season of The Mandalorian.

Omera was first seen in the recently released D23 Expo trailer holding a young child close in a pool of water.

Deadline has confirmed that the Boston native has been added to the cast of The Mandalorian, the ambitious, live-action interstellar bounty hunter series that will premiere in November as a cornerstone component of the Disney+ streaming subscription service.

No word from Disney or Lucasfilm on the the nature of Jones’ role, nor any hint about how the character might fit into Season 1 or its announced run of eight episodes.

Other television credits for Jones include HBO’s Westworld, NBC’s ER,  Netflix’s Longmire, and the upcoming season of Amazon’s Goliath. Her feature films include Cold PursuitWind RiverJonah Hex, and The Ridiculous 6 — in addition to three installments of The Twilight Saga.
