If Pedro Pascal was officially hired to play the Mandalorian, he was not always on the set to embody the character. Witness the statements of director Bryce Dallas Howard at Vulture : “[Pascal] was in rehearsals for King Lear on Broadway. So when we were shooting my episode [le quatrième de la saison, NdlR], I have not worked with Pedro “. But then who was on set, in Mando’s armor?
Well two people. First Capefira stuntman and practitioner Lateef Crowder, and stuntman Brendan Wayne, grandson of John Wayne. The two actors are the stunt liners of the Mandalorian over the eight episodes of the first season. Wayne also tells, also at the microphone of Vulture, have seen “frequently” Pedro Pascal on the set, ensuring that they worked together on the character’s movements. He declares : “[Pedro et moi] we were asking “why did you move like that at the time?” And we would resume. (…) He loves to learn, likes to work and he is very good at it “.
However, Pedro Pascal doubles all the aftershocks of the character and this in all the episodes. Having a separate person in costume and voice is nothing new in the Star Wars universe, since the character of Darth Vader was voiced by James Earl Jones and physically played by David Prowse.
