[This story contains Andor the first three spoiler set. ]
Star Wars Right Killing Eve as Andor star Fiona Shaw is now the third key character in the BBC America series to join a galaxy far, far away. Follow in the footsteps of Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Stars Judy Comer (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Shaw as Cassian Andor (Diego Luna)’s adoptive mother Marva, She first meets young “Casa” (Antonio Viña) in the wreckage of a ship in his hometown of Kenali.
For Shaw, the answer to why Maarva is responsible for this Kenari child has to do with the fact that Cassian’s fellow Kenari just killed a Republic officer.
“If she hadn’t brought him home, he would have died. She saw him and thought, ‘This is an amazing child. “So she took him as her own,” Shaw told The Hollywood Reporter .
Shaw also didn’t blame Cassian, who grew up on Maarva, for being a little disappointed and a nuisance to his friends and family.
“She probably admitted it all the time because Kenari and his search for his sister were always on his mind and he never gave himself completely to this mother ,” Xiao said. “So she did her best to him, and of course he was disappointed because he couldn’t find his way. And he couldn’t find his way because he couldn’t find his way.”
In a recent session with THR, Shaw also added insight to her favorite line, “This is how reckoning sounds look like.”
You are very suitable for star Wars The galaxy that surprised me was not voted until now. Have you ever brushed star WAR Casting over the years?
I hope you’re the casting director, because then I might. (laugh.) Thank you very much. I’m glad you think so. Every time has its own horn, my moment is now. So I’m excited to be a part of this, a very complex development of all Star Wars franchises. Tony writes something complex, textured, emotional, determined and excavated. He does it all, and his work is almost like many European or Russian films. He conducted a domestic survey in this very, very metallic universe. So it’s a great achievement.

So why is Maarva responsible for this Kenari child now known as Cassian Andor? Why did she take him in?
Because she found him. I mean, she adopted him because she found him. If she hadn’t brought him home, he would surely have died. Her husband said, “Are you crazy?” She said, “I’m not going to let him die here.” So I think that’s it. Even when she first met Cassian, he was such a wonderful creature of character, and I suspect the connection happened even before she decided to accept him. She saw him and thought, “This kid is amazing.” So she took him as hers.
Do you think she was trying to have a baby with her husband long before that?
Interesting question. I wonder if she forgot about them because she was busy hanging out in the galaxy with her husband and collecting tons of metals just to make things. You do feel that Felix is not a very wealthy community, people just make a living by repairing spaceships and sending them back to the Empire. They’re mechanics and their backyard is full of old stuff. But it’s on such a large scale only because it’s a spaceship. So she and her husband collect spaceships and repair them. She is a little hypocritical. Before [she adopted Cassian], she wasn’t a stay-at-home person.
As a professional scavenger of some sort, she recognizes the value of Cassian, just as she does with spaceship parts.
You are absolutely right. When we saw her when she was much older, she was very tired, very tired, very tired. She has experienced many tragedies in her life, and the empire is driving her crazy.
