Actress Gina Carano of The Mandalorian Fired By Lucasfilm After Controversial Social Media Posts
According to Deadline, actress Gina Carano, who played bounty hunter Cara Dune in the first two seasons of The Mandalorian, has been fired after several since-deleted social media posts.
In the wake of Gina Carano’s controversial social media posts, Lucasfilm has released a statement tonight, with a spokesperson saying “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
A spinoff of The Mandalorian, titled “Rangers of the New Republic,” was announced by Lucasfilm in December. Carano’s character Cara Dune was expected to have a role in that show as well, although Lucasfilm has not yet announced a cast for the show.
