    He's the same guy working on a real life hoverboard from Back to the Future.

    Yeah, got his start at Nintendo before moving into film production.

    I don't understand why there are two people playing Mando? One person is the movements, one person is the voice (and 5 seconds of facetime), is that right?

    IIRC there are like 3 people who played him last season. One did the majority of the on-screen work, one did the heavy/specialized stunt work, and Pedro Pascal did the voice and the scene(s) where his face was visible. I'm sure you can dig up even more who played him for a variety of other reasons for much smaller increments of time.

    Rumor is Pedro Pascal wanted more scenes with the helmet off in season 2, butting heads with the Favreau and Filoni then trying to go over their heads to Lucasfilm... and got told to walk off set because of it.

    Which, hey. If you're portraying the character, I understand wanting your face to be associated with it. But at the same time ... That's not the role. You knew what the role was. (if the rumors are true, which, meh, rumors)

    Only place I've seen this is We Got This Covered which is basically a straight up tabloid that makes 99.99% of its news up.

    Folks, please keep in mind that it is not the first time in the franchise that a character's portrayal is a composite of different actors.

    Sounds like Pedro and David Prowse would get along well.

    Yeah Anthony Daniels gets the credit but C3PO is doing all the acting and stunts.

    They are at opposite ends, though. Pedro is more like JEJ, except he gets to be the face when the mask comes off.

    Yeah, this is not new. It's just that in this case the allocated screen time is skewed because Mando has his helmet on the vast majority of time, and the "main face" actor apparently didn't do a lot of the work beyond a handful of scenes. Also, we're talking about the titular character rather than supporting cast.

    That's about what happened with Vader in the OT. Only add a fourth for the unmasked and ghost appearances. And a fifth when they replaced his old-man ghost with Anakin's actor from the PT.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.
