An actress from the Obi-Wan series says the shoot is reminiscent of an indie movie

We are used to the fact that most of the shoots that we tackle from our news are big productions where time is money and where nerves and out of tune temperaments are the order of the day.

However, it seems that the filming of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is being one of those rare exceptions that from time to time come to light.

Recently, actress Indira Varma ( Game of Thrones ) has been chatting with Metro News about her experience on the set of the Star Wars series starring Ewan McGregor and directed by Deborah Chow.

Varma has said that in a way, Chow has managed to make the environment during filming resemble that of an independent film, without the stress of a large production. Ensures that all opinions are heard, without anyone bringing out the bad temper.

The actress admitted not being very up to date with the Star Wars films , which means that on many occasions she has had to ask Chow and McGregor for explanations and context when filming sequences.

As he related, she is not a staunch fan of the franchise, which meant that in many situations, she needed some additional explanations to know how to best interpret the character, aware that the Star Wars fandom is inflexible in many aspects.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is one of many live-action Star Wars productions currently underway, alongside the Ahsoka , Andor , The Book of Boba Fett series, and the third season of The Mandalorian .

What do you expect from the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? Do you think it is a good sign that there is that “indie movie atmosphere” on the set of the series?
