Gina Carano Shares Her Feelings of ‘The Mandalorian’

The former MMA fighter, Gina Carano, will soon make her debut on the upcoming Star Wars Disney+ series ‘The Mandalorian’ releasing November 15th. In an exclusive interview with ET Online, Gina spoke about how working with Jon Favreau has influenced her career and life:

“He looked at me before my big scene, one of my biggest introductory scenes in Mandalorian, and he was like, ‘We’re gonna change your trajectory right now,’” she recalled. “I think he’s a very honest man, and he’s seen the struggle, and he’s seen what happens to careers and he’s like, ‘We’re gonna change your path right now’… He’s like, ‘From here on out, you’re gonna choose jobs that are complimenting [you]. And you’re gonna choose jobs that challenge you. And you’re gonna believe in yourself. From this scene forward.

I was welling up with tears – And I went out and I crushed that scene. And it was like, a scene when I first read the script I was like, oh gosh, this is more than I’ve ever been given — how am I going to do this? And then, with him (Favreau), I really trained for it, and I really was present… He believed in me and it helped me believe in myself. I couldn’t thank him enough, because I feel like my whole life since I shot that has been a different world.

Literally, as soon as we walked out on stage, it was a rush of like, this positive energy, which I was not expecting. And I feel like, you know, Twitter is one of the worst places to go, but I refuse to let people chase me away. And I refuse to be one of those negative voices…. Because a lot of us have been reserved and now we’re like, no, come on, like, we’re human beings, you know? We’re just trying to do the best we can! So that was just positive energy, I love it.”

It appears that Jon Favreau was the right choice for ‘The Mandalorian’. Great directors are hard to come by, but teaching moments like this can only be taught by a select few. Favreau knows how to get the best performance from those on set and it appears that whatever he did to inspire Gina, it worked.
