Andor’s journey is deeply personal for Diego Luna

Born and raised in Mexico, Luna became a prominent actress in her homeland through television series such as “El abuelo y yo” and “El premio mayor”. However, the first time he received international acclaim was in 2001 with “Y Tu Mamá También”, the film in which he starred alongside Maribel Verdú and longtime friend Gael García Bernal. Although he primarily takes on roles in English-speaking productions, his work as a producer on the film “Andor” allows it to reflect the struggles he and others face. How other immigrants face can be appeased through the strength of community and heritage.

“I think about the relationship between Latin America and the countries and the huge border that separates Mexico from the countries,” he explained. “That energy will be embodied in Cassian’s journey. The power of community – that’s the story of this story!”

It’s a well-received story for “Star Wars” fans, especially those with similar backgrounds and experiences. Luna told the blog that he’s grateful to play Cassian for this reason, as he says that honest representation is important, especially in a galaxy so, so far away.

“This character represents so much,” he said. “It’s important that we see ourselves on screen, that we feel represented, that the stories we tell reflect the world out there.”

“Andor” is currently showing on Disney+, with new episodes released every Wednesday.
