Actress Gina Carano, known for playing Cara Dune on The Mandalorian, has been fired from the show due to her recent remarks on social media.
According to io9, Lucasfilm decided to part ways with the actress due to her recent remarks on social media in which she made ill-regarded remarks referencing the Holocaust and denigrating people based on cultural and religious identities.
Carano was set to start in her own spin-off called Rangers Of The New Republic, which was teased in the recent season of The Mandalorian, but said spin-off is most likely in need of re-writes with the recent firing.
In a statement sent to io9, a Lucasfilm representative spoke on the matter:
“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.”
THR also reports that Carano has also been dropped as a client by the United Talent Agency.
