A recent interview with The Mandalorian stunt double Brendan Wayne has revealed some clues about what to expect from upcoming episodes of the Star Wars live-action show.
Wayne is one of three actors behind Din Djarin, providing much of the Mandalorian’s physicality with his stunt double experience. In the interview with the Star Wars Sessions podcast (sourced via the StarWarsLeaks subreddit), he hinted at what audiences might expect from the second half of the current season, promising that the series will continue its stream of surprises from earlier season.
“They try to give you something to different work with in [The Mandalorian], and this season was no exception,” Wayne said. “You’ll see it in the next episode. You’re gonna see something very different than you’ve seen in its presentation, and so it’s amazing.”
What’s more, Wayne promised that the season finale will be the climax of the season, while also saying that his personal favourite episode has not yet aired.
“For different reasons, different episodes have a lot of meaning, whether it’s the enjoyment of the cast that came in for this episode, or the director I get to work with, or the story point I get to uphold in this moment,” the stunt performer said. “I don’t think I’ve had my favourite [episode air] yet… There are some things that happen in the final episode that are pretty epic.”
This could feature one of his favourite scenes to film, suggesting that more action is to come between Din Djarin and Bo-Katan Kryze.
“There’s a scene coming up with Bo and Mando…I had a great time doing that, and it was a lot of varying emotions came here and there. There’s a really cool quality that I felt that I was able to play around in as an actor – which most of the time you’re not aware of it, you’re in the moment and you go.
“There’s something about that, and the do-si-do that we had, while physical and verbal, was super-intense, and I think it’s gonna be really cool. I think you’re gonna enjoy it.”
