Diego Luna Says ‘Andor’ Ending is ‘Good For My Mental Health’
Fans of the Star Wars series Andor are eagerly awaiting the launch of Season 2.
The gritty, down-to-earth Star Wars show wowed critics and fans alike with its mature depiction of the galaxy ruled by the Galactic Empire.
While Season 2 of Andor isn’t expected to debut until 2024, star Diego Luna, who portrays Cassian Andor, is already looking forward to the series ending.
“This is the last season for ‘Andor,’” Luna says. “It is just a two-season show, which is really important for my mental health. But knowing this is the end, I want to enjoy it and get the best out of this experience.”
Andor Is An Exhausting Experience
While Luna was happy to reprise his Rouge One character Cassian Andor, the experience has taken a toll on the actor.
“There’s no time for the hangover,” he says, laughing. “You wake up the next morning and there is always something to do.”
After 24 episodes, shot across nearly year-long productions, it’s no wonder Luna gets fatigued.
Even while Andor‘s 6th episode was airing last October, Luna was still doing additional dialogue for the season finale.
Solace in the Theater
In order to stay grounded while working on a show as grandiose as Andor, Luna relaxes by returning to the theater.
The actor grew up watching plays with his father and the stage has been a constant in his career ever since.
“In a way, it has kept me sane. Theater is a great way to go back and put your feet on the ground and remind you what this is all about.”
After concluding Andor, Diego Luna plans to take a break to recoup mentally from his time in the Star Wars universe. Then, however, it will be back to the grind.
Perhaps, it will be a return to his beloved theater that will be the next step in his journey.
“There’s one another thing I love about theater: you sleep every night in the same bed.”
