On working with the little puppet, also known as the Child, Mando actor Pedro Pascal said, “Ironically, it’s the very small physical gesture, those specific intonations in a voice, that make him compelling. A little goes a long way.”
Producer Dave Filoni said, “Last season, the Child was on set and we weren’t sure with the puppet if we would even use much of it — and it turned out, we used a lot of it.”
He added, “But in season 2, he was the biggest thing on the set. There was a total shift around him. Everybody liked him before, but he wasn’t quite the celebrity that he was in season 2. This time, he was quite a big deal.”
Looking forward to the new season, actress Gina Carano promised, “The first season was just the beginning of a huge story, they take the gloves off even more in season 2.”
