“You will definitely see familiar faces,” Luna told Deadline about Andor. “I can tell you about this project like no other because I can’t anticipate the ending if you’ve already seen (Stars Wars: Rogue One). No matter what I say, I can’t spoil the ending ”.
Unfortunately, we don’t know which characters Luna is referring to, those already announced or characters kept secret during filming.
The star then discussed what it was like to shoot the series during the pandemic and, surprisingly, seems to have been thrilled:
“To be honest, it was such a blessing to do this job and do it under these circumstances”, he has declared. “I’ve had the chance to work with a team that I couldn’t be more proud of and admire more. It’s a tough time to be out there filming, and we’ve been really lucky. We are done shooting now and we are preparing everything to show it to the public ”.
