The Mighty Dragon meets Jake Cannavale

The Mandalorian Special continues…

Securing this interview I felt that I had hit the Star Wars Universe jackpot!

I am so honoured to feature actor Jake Cannavale in this special The Mandalorian series. We know him as bounty hunter Toro Calican, but I wanted to dig a little deeper into what makes this actor unique.

Jake comes from a large acting family, so it was pretty much imprinted in his DNA from day one. His parents, actors Bobby Cannavale and Jenny Lumet, encouraged him as he carved out his unique presence centre screen. His step mother, Rose Byrne, being a guiding, positive influence too.

Of course, this conversation was focussed on all things The Mandalorian. Jake recalls his special behind-the-scenes moments, specifically a moment with Obi-Wan, Ewan McGregor. He also touches upon his role in Nurse Jackie too, and how he felt working alongside his father.

I tried to guess his favourite Star Wars characters but failed miserably, his answer was a total shock! Jake, you were right. I would never have guessed it.

Starring in The Mandalorian was certainly one of his career high points, but I feel this is only the start for him. To sum it up, there’s more to this actor than we have seen already, I just hope he is back on The Mandalorian soon. After all, no character dies really…..

The Mandalorian: Toro Calican riding the dunes.

I am honoured to have him here as part of The Mandalorian interview collection.

Thanks to Jake and the folks at Framework Entertainment for this opportunity.

This is the fifth interview for The Mighty Dragon in its special The Mandalorian series. Tune in for more interviews from this epic, fan favourite series made for all Star Wars fans.
