Andor cast & character guide: who’s who in the new Star Wars show
Andor introduces a raft of newcomers to the Star Wars galaxy, as well as reintroducing us to some familiar faces. With so many people to keep track of, it can be easy to get lost. If you want to find out who’s who, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ve got every major Andor character below, so you can keep up to speed with who everyone is on the Rogue One prequel show. Plus, have no fear, everything below is complete spoiler free, So you can read whether you’ve seen the first three episodes or not.
Cassian is inside
Returning from Rogue One, Cassian is the title character of Andor. The show will track his journey to becoming a rebel who dedicates himself to the Death Star plan, but he has a long road ahead of him. Cassian was taken from his home planet Kenary by his adoptive mother Marva and now lives on Ferix, but can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
Who plays Cassian in Andorra?
Diego Luna returns as Cassian after first playing the role in Rogue One. Along with that movie, Luna also appeared in Narcos: Mexico, If Bill Street Could Talk, and The Book of Life. “I got the chance to explore so many layers of character that a movie doesn’t let you do,” Luna told Total Film of Andor in a recent interview. “With the long format here, we basically have four films. So, you have a great opportunity to talk about the conflicts that make someone real, that make a character real and touchable.”
Marva is Cassian’s adoptive mother. He rescued Kennery from a dangerous situation on his home planet and now lives with him on Ferix. In the past, she mined and sold metal with her husband – we’re introduced to her in a flashback, until a young Cassian interrupts. She is a brand new character introduced in Andor.
Who is the character of Andore Marva?
Fiona Shaw plays Marva in Andore. She is best known for playing Aunt Petunia in the Harry Potter films, as well as Caroline Martens in Killing Eve. “She’s actually a member of a thing called the Daughters of Ferics, which is like a community group of women who hold the moral standing of the planet very well,” Shaw told us of her character. “So he’s a very respectable man, and he’s also a very old man, and he’s not as well when we meet him in this series.”
Bix is a friend of Cassian who runs a yard in Ferix. She and Cassian seem to have a long history and some unfinished business, though it’s a mystery for now. Bix is also in contact with Luthen Rael and dating a man named Tim. Like Marva, Bix is a new character not seen before in Star Wars.
Who played Bix in Andor?
Bix is played by Morbius and Good Women star Adria Arzona. “Bix is trying to do his best as a manager of a sale yard and making a name for himself by selling to Ferix,” Arzona told Total Film. “And Cassian is on this other completely different journey. So when they meet, they collide, and I don’t think time is really on their side.”
Tim works with Bix at the sale yard and they are also dating. He’s not a fan of Cassian, though, and his actions in the first three episodes have already made Tim everyone’s new favorite Star Wars character. Another new addition to Team Galaxy, far and away.
Who played Timm in Andor?
James McCardell plays Tim in Andor. If he looks familiar, it’s because he had a small role as pilot Neve Lake in The Force Awakens. He also appeared in Easttown’s Mare and Mary Queen of Scots.
Another brand new character, Luthen Rael is the mysterious man Bex contacts so Cassian can sell his stolen Starpath unit. But, when Luthen reaches Ferix, he instead recruits Cassian for his anti-Imperial crusade. Not much is known about this shadowy figure yet.
Who plays Luthene in Andorra?
Luthen is played by Stellan Skarsgård, whose long career includes roles in the MCU as Erik Selvig and Baron Harkonnen in Dune. This is his first time in the Star Wars franchise.
Cyril Kern is a deputy inspector of the Corporate Sector Authority, which is like the corporate sector’s police force – Cassian visits a planet under his control in the first episode. Cyril loves Dedicated to his work and seriously hunting Cassian, he may be out of his depth. Like most of the list, he’s a brand new Star Wars character.
Who played the character of Karn in Andore Serial?
Kyle Soler played the serial character. He has previously appeared in Poldark, Anna Karenina and The Titan. “From a traumatic upbringing, he became an outsider, and as a result, created this ideal that he wasn’t,” Soler told us of his character. “And to fit the ideal, he recognized that a structure like a fascist empire could reward that kind of person, far more than trying to figure it out in everyday life.”
Dedra works for the Imperial Security Bureau. He’s another new character, so not much is known about him or his past at this point. We’ve yet to meet him on the show, but it seems safe to assume he’ll be on his way to Cassian Andor soon.
Who plays in Andorra?
Dennis Gough plays Deadra. Gough voiced Yennefer in The Witcher 3 and had roles in Under the Banner of Heaven, The Kid Who Would Be King, and The Good Traitor. “I’m very aware that I’m one of the few women in this position, and so I’m really loving it,” Gough told Total Film. “But that’s the only way you can do things that usually guys can do, and I think it’s great that they’re now starting to open the door that women can be fascists, too.”
Monday fever is back! He was last seen in Rogue One, but led the rebellion in the Star Wars original trilogy and took the first steps towards establishing a resistance against the Empire in revenge for the Sith’s deleted scenes. On Andor, he still serves in the Imperial Senate, but he leads a dangerous double life and works against the Empire behind the scenes. So far, we haven’t seen her in the show, but she is in a major role.
Who played the role of Mom Mothma in Andore?
Genevieve O’Reilly plays Mom Mothma Andore. He played characters in Rogue One and Revenge of the Sith and also voiced the Star Wars Rebels animated show. “Every time I’ve been lucky enough to come back to him, I’ve learned more about him, I’ve learned more about the world,” O’Reilly told us. “And Andor especially let me discover him in so many new and different ways.”
I saw Guerrera
Guerrera is back in Andorra. He debuted in The Clone Wars, then reappeared in Rogue One. He is a rebel who is separated from the original rebellion for his extremism and is killed in Jedha, but not before giving Jyn Erso a hologram message from his father that helps the rebels discover the key to defeating the Death Star.
Who played Saw Gerrera in Andor?
Forest Whitaker returns to the role of Saw Gerrera after first portraying him in Rogue One. You probably recognize him from the likes of Black Panther, The Butler and The Last King of Scotland.
