The Mandalorian has Bryce Dallas Howard as a director for one of the first season’s eight episodes, but does she cameo in the live-action Star Wars show?
It’s been speculated for a while that Bryce Dallas Howard may have a voice-over cameo or some other walk-on role for the series. But when asked about if her involvement with The Mandalorian series gave that option, Bryce Dallas Howard had a pretty blunt and direct answer:
“No. [laughs] No, I love to be behind the camera.”
The interviewer went on to ask Bryce Dallas Howard about her first experience of walking onto a Star Wars set. Bryce Dallas Howard then recounted that she actually walked onto the set of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace back when it was filming in 1998. Bryce Dallas Howard recounts that her friendship with Natalie Portman got her a closer look at the movie:
“I went and visited Natalie quite a bit on that set when we were like 16-years-old, and also just kind of growing up around George [Lucas] and all of that. You know what, it feels like my childhood. That’s what it feels like. Going on a Star Wars set feels like my childhood. It’s the most amazing experience.”
