'The Mandalorian' Actress Teases Expanded Role

'This Is The Way'

By Culture SlatePublished 2 years ago 3 min read

With news of Season 3 of The Mandalorian coming to screens in February next year, Actors and Actresses can start talking more about their roles in the new season. During Celebration Anaheim last month Emily Swallow, The actress playing The Armorer, appeared at the Mando+ panel to talk more about her character. Emily explained how she has developed over her time onscreen. After the panel, Emily sat down with Ash Crossan of Screen Rant for an interview about her character in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian.

Emily said that when it comes to her character in The Mandalorian, she doesn't delve much into the backstory. Swallow said that the character is too big in the life of Din Djarin for her to project details onto The Armorer. The character needs to be whatever Din needs her to be. She is a central figure in his life and has to be able to adjust to his needs. This is in contrast, the actress says, to her usual method where she fleshes out a character through a backstory.

She represents so many ideas and influences in Din's life. So for her, the only time she delves into The Armorer's life is during the moments she shares with Dinn. That way she is always exactly what is needed in the scene. Emily says that Dave and Jon don't fill in the details for her, leaving the actress to fill in these blanks. But with a character always developing there is a need to be fluid with her motivations. This is a great explanation of Emily's change in how she approaches the character of The Armorer.

During the interview Swallow also confirmed that The Armorer will be returning for season three, but she will have a much larger role than in previous seasons. This shouldn't come as a huge surprise to those who watched season one of The Book Of Boba Fett, seeing as episode five of the series focused on Din Djarin making amends with his clan. During the episode we see Emily's character ask if Din removed his helmet, an unforgivable offense to his people, to which he says he had. The Armorer tells him there is only one way to seek redemption, traveling to Mandalore and bathing in the living waters deep in the mines under the planet. However, such a task is impossible as the entire planet was bombarded until it was in ruins during the early years of the Empire.

However, with the leaks we saw during Celebration Anaheim, we know that Din will be heading back to Mandalore. In a teaser released during the Mando+ panel, we see the ruined planet at the very end of the trailer. Including what appeared to be the ruins of the former capital city. From what we have seen this season will weave Mandalorian traditions and culture into the show in a more complex way than in previous seasons. For fans of the warrior culture, this means seeing more of the tapestry of traditions that make up the Mandalorians. Something fans have been begging for since The Empire Strikes Back hit theaters and introduced us to Boba Fett, the first Mandalorian in Star Wars.

For now, it seems as though every fan of The Mandalorian will be waiting a bit longer to see The Armorer in her expanded role. During Celebration Anaheim, Dave Filoni revealed that the third season of the show will not arrive on Disney+ until February 2023. Luckily for fans of Star Wars, there is a plethora of content coming to the streaming service between now and then to keep us entertained as we wait.
