    Joanna Bennett's Tusken Warrior character was one of the more popular characters in The Book of Boba Fett, becoming one of the highlights of the show's flashback sequences. It was a sad realization when her character's time in the series was cut short and we wouldn't get to see the warrior again, but she left a lasting impression.

    In an interview with BobaFettFanClub.com, she opened up on her experience working on The Book of Boba Fett. One of the things she mentions is 'respecting' the gaffi stick, which ended up being reflected in the show's story.

    She also mentioned that she worked with Temuera Morrison on the Tusken warrior's fighting style, given his incorporation of the Maori haka into Boba's fighting style back in The Mandalorian. Both she and Temuera were already good friends from their time working on Aquaman, so they had a good working relationship. It seems Morrison influenced both Bennett and her stunt team when it came to crafting the Tusken fighting style.


    Bennett also revealed that her Tusken Warrior costume didn't exactly make her job easier. With limited vision out of the mask and long robes, it's a testament to her skill that she was able to make her character's stunts feel so real.

    Joanna also delved into the process behind crafting the Tusken Warrior's backstory.


    She also revealed one of her favorite memories working on a training sequence with Temuera Morrison:

    Unfortunately, Bennett also has no idea what Tuskens really look like under her masks, so clearly that was never an avenue that Favreau and Filoni were looking to explore. By all accounts though, she had a great time working on The Book of Boba Fett. For the full interview, head to BobaFettFanClub.com.
