Katee Sackhoff Didn’t Know About Luke Until We Did

The Mandalorian Season 3 Trailer Description And Release Window

Katee Sackhoff didn’t know about Luke until we did the actress confirms. Of course, we all now know that Luke Skywalker showed up in the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian. At the time LRM‘s source had told us the only actor who knew that was Luke, was Pedro Pascal. Since then we have had some of the other actors indicate they were shocked when Hamill appeared on set. However, Sackhoff says that whilst they kinda figured it out, they did not know officially until they watched the episode.

Sackhoff recently spoke with The Sith Council. You can catch the video below, or skip it for the transcript.

“I didn’t know until I saw it with you guys,” she admitted. “I didn’t know! They didn’t tell us [who it was]. There was an actor there with dots on his face. I mean, [I] kind of [put it together], but at the same time I thought to myself, ‘They would’ve let us know that.'”

Sackhoff says they were even told a different name from that of Luke Skywalker.

“They said, who did they say it was? I think Robin (Chow) knew who they said it was. But it was a complete red herring. So we didn’t know. I knew it was a Jedi. I knew it was an X-Wing. So you start to put things together, but you don’t know.”

We have still to hear anything to confirm whether Pedro Pascal knew it was Luke or not. However I trust our source and it does seem more likely the main star of the show would be clued in.

Lucasfilm went to great lengths to protect this Luke Skywalker secret. Considering how many correct leaks were out there for The Mandalorian Season 2, that is surprising. Maybe we need to give Lucasfilm some more credit, secrecy seemed to not even factor into those sequel trilogy movies. Check back and you’ll see the entire plot of The Rise of Skywalker was leaked well in advance of the movie.  Long may the new secretive Lucasfilm continue.

Sackhoff didn’t know about Luke till we did, what do you think of her comments. As always share what you have below.
