Disney+ currently has several pretty exciting Star Wars-themed shows in development, and one of them will center on the legendary Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. The cast of this show is already shaping up to be amazing, and Indira Varma is the latest star to join.

Not much is known about the character that Varma is going to play, and we’re yet to find out if she’s already a part of the Star Wars canon. Details about this project are being kept under wraps in general, but the series is expected to start shooting later this spring.

Varma will be in good company on the set. Two Star Wars veterans had already been cast in this exciting project—Ewan McGregor will return as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen is expected to reprise his role as Darth Vader.

Varma is no stranger to starring in big-budget projects with a passionate fanbase, as she’s best known for her role as Ellaria Sand in Game of Thrones. Her recent filmography includes roles in legal drama For Life and fantasy series Carnival Row.
