‘Game of Thrones’ Star Indira Varma Cast in Star Wars ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Disney+ Series. It seems Lucasfilm is invested in introducing more Game of Thrones actors and actresses into the Star Wars Universe!
Actress Indira Varma has joined the cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi in an undefined role for the series. Varma is bet known for her role as Ellaria Sand in HBO’s Game of Thrones, and was coincidentally the love interest for Pedro Pascal’s Oberyn Martell. Pascal has won over Star Wars fans as the infamous bounty hunter Din Djarin in The Mandalorian.
Reportedly, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is set 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Currently, the show will star Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, with Hayden Christensen returning as Darth Vader for the limited series. Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere exclusively on Disney+ at a to be determined date and has begun filming in Little Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
