Diego Luna opens up about which ‘Andor’ scene made him cry

  • Diego Luna was asked which scenes in Season 1 were the most difficult to shoot.
  • The response was totally unexpected.
  • Cassian Andor is one of the best characters that Star Wars has ever created.

Diego Luna has continually awe-inspiring performances in Tony Gilroy’s critically praised series Andor’s twelve-episode first season have confirmed why Cassian Andor is one of the best characters that Star Wars has ever created.

Whether plotting for ways to gain enough money to ultimately flee Ferrix or realising the true price of rebellion, Cassian has risen to the occasion while never losing sight of the realistic human component that makes Cassian such a captivating figure. It’s difficult to single out a single sequence in which Luna’s extraordinary acting abilities shine out.

On the eve of the season finale of Andor, Collider’s own Steve Weintraub spoke with the actor about the show. During the chat, Luna was asked which scenes in Season 1 were the most difficult to shoot, and his response was unexpected.

In the finale, Cassian embarks on a mission to rescue Bix (Adria Arjona) from the Empire, while the officers are preoccupied with crowd control at Cassian’s mother’s funeral.

Maarva (Fiona Shaw) delivers her own eulogy via hologram, which becomes a call to action to fight back against the Empire, and the scene becomes one of the most powerful scenes in Star Wars history.

This was the most difficult sequence for Luna since the emotions hit home with him. The actor elaborated:

Well, I was walking underneath Ferrix [and] the director started playing the words of Maarva. So I was listening to the music in a moment, and then the words. With the music, it was just before the words. Let’s talk about the music. I’m walking underneath Ferrix, and I’m hearing the music, and I just started crying. I didn’t want the character to cry there. It was like, “Shit, no, this can’t be happening.” I got so emotional. So emotional. And it means a lot to me, on a personal level. That relation of Cassian and Maarva, and the way she ends up setting him in the right direction. I think it’s such a strong, strong piece of Cassian’s story, and I get emotional just by talking about it. It is, for me, the strongest relation, and it’s clearly Maarva’s example [that] sets him in that ride that will end in Rogue One. It was really tough to keep my emotions. To keep it strong because I didn’t want him to break there. It had to be later on. I didn’t want it to break there, and it was impossible.

Luna went on to compliment Gilroy on how every facet of the first season is resolved in the finale, saying, “I’m just going to say that every time I talk about the series, it’s incredible how nothing is [taken] for granted in our show. The work of Tony and all the writers, it’s so perfect. Everything pays off. Everything, everything. And as an actor, it’s just so amazing to be able to work with that material because everything has a connection. It was very strong, I mean, I love many episodes of the show, but nothing like 12. 12 is very strong for me.”

During an interview, showrunner Tony Gilroy revealed that the series will most likely return for its second and final season on the same schedule as Season 1, which implies in 2024.

Luna is slated to reprise her role as Cassian Andor, and it’s probable that performers with ties to Rogue One, such as Genevieve O’Reilly and Duncan Pow, will also return as the series moves closer to the events of that film.

The entire first season of Andor is now available to watch online. This week, you can also see the first two episodes of the series on ABC, Freeform, FX, and Hulu for the first time.
