‘Star Wars’ Cassian Andor Series Adds O’Reilly, Gough, & A Showrunner

The yet-to-be-titled Star Wars Cassian Andor series has added two new actors to its roster. Genevieve O’Reilly should be a sort of familiar face to Star Wars fans. She played one of the founders of the Rebellion, Mon Mothma in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and voiced the character in the animated Star Wars Rebels. O’Reilly will be reprising her role as Mon Mothma in the upcoming show.

Her television career has largely been on British shows, such as Titanic: Blood and Steel, Stella, and Guerrilla. She also voiced Yennefer of Vengerberg in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt videogame. Both O’Reilly and Gough appeared in the 2019 film The Kid Who Would Be King.
