OBI-WAN KENOBI Set Photos Confirm GAME OF THRONES Alum Indira Varma’s Role

After years of development, Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi is finally filming for Disney+. We have received quite a bit of casting information for the series, however, besides the returning characters we didn’t really know any information about these new characters.

Now, with set photos coming out from Obi-Wan we may have an idea of who Game of Thrones alum, Indira Varma may be playing.

According to these set images it seems that Indira Varma will be portraying an Imperial Officer in Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi.

We had previously seen set photos of a female Imperial Officer on the set of Obi-Wan. However, with the blurry nature of the photo and since the actress was wearing a face mask, we couldn’t tell who she was.

Now, it seems pretty clear that the Imperial Officer will be played by Indira Varma, indicating that the Empire will play a major role in Obi-Wan Kenobi, as expected.
