Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Gina Carano: MMA's first female superstar is ready for acting stardom in Disney's Star Wars spin-off 'The Mandalorian' (PHOTOS)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
The episodic drama, which launches on Disney's streaming service Disney+ on November 12, follows the life of a bounty hunter, with Carano playing one of the starring roles as Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper-turned-mercenary who fought for the Rebel Alliance in the civil war.
The role sees her star alongside Pedro Pascal and Carl Weathers, who became a worldwide superstar when he played Apollo Creed in the Rocky movies.
It's the latest role in Carano's increasingly successful post-fight career as an actress. Her first major movie role came in the 2011 action thriller Haywire, and led to her being cast in Fast & Furious 6 two years later, then Deadpool in 2016.
Carano has appeared in 11 feature films in all, but her upcoming role in The Mandalorian is undoubtedly her most significant role to date.
Carano's transition from MMA star to actress has been a remarkable one after the MMA starlet swapped the cage for the screen in 2009.
