    Coming off her highly anticipated debut as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian: Chapter 13 - The Jedi, Rosario Dawson has spoken more about what it was like to play the fan favorite character.



    Speaking to starwars.com, Rosario had more to say off the back of her recent interview with Vanity Fair. A few of the points were repeated from that previous interview, such as how she ended up landing the role, but there were some interesting bits around what it was like taking on such a beloved character with so much history.



    Like in the Vanity Fair interview, Dawson was quick to pay tribute Ashley Eckstein's portrayal of Ahsoka, which is responsible for making Ahsoka such a beloved character in Star Wars fandom:



    Starwars.com also notes that Dawson was already familiar with The Clone Wars before taking the role, having watched it with her daughter. And while some actors prefer not to watch or read the original material before putting their own mark on a popular character, Rosario actually found it hugely beneficial as she went back and re-watched The Clone Wars and her appearances in Star Wars Rebels:



    Dave Filoni, who helped create Ahsoka with George Lucas and wrote and directed this episode, also advised her to look to Gandalf from Lord of the Rings as well as some samurai influences as a touchpoint for who the character was by the time we meet her in The Mandalorian.



    Dawson also speaks about her excitement for the costume fitting and her determination to look as authentic as possible:



    The actress also made it clear that she would love to return as Ahsoka one day, whether it be for another appearance in The Mandalorian or a different project entirely.



    Finally, Rosario expressed her delight that the character even lived in the first place, after the #AhsokaLives campaign that ran following her vague fate in Star Wars Rebels Season 2 that led to her being fancast in the role.



    Fans will no doubt be excited to see Ahsoka return again once more, whether that's in animation or live action.

    I love her enthusiasm and how much she cares about the role, it really comes through on screen. To me she felt like Ahsoka, not an actor playing Ahsoka.
