Returning from Rogue One, Andor’s title is Cassian. The show follows his journey to become a rebel who sacrifices himself for the Death Star project, but he has a long road ahead of him.

Therefore, there is a great opportunity for you to talk about the protests that have really happened, to make it a real and touchable character. “
Maarva is Cassian’s foster mother. He rescued her from a dangerous situation on her home world of Kenari and now lives with her on Ferrix.

Bix is a friend of Cassian who runs a bar in Ferrix. She and Cassian have a long history and some unfinished business, though it’s a mystery at this point.

Bix is played by Morbius and Good Omens star Adria Arjona. “Bix is trying to do his best as a sales and marketing manager and make a name for himself at Ferrix,” Arjona told Total Film. “And Cassian is on this other journey, very different. So they’re fighting when they meet, and I don’t think time is on their side.”
Timm works on the sales floor with Bix, and the two are dating. He was never a fan of Cassian, but his performances in the first three episodes made Timm the latest Star Wars fan. Timm is another newcomer to a galaxy far, far away.

Syril is played by Kyle Soller. He previously appeared in Poldark, Anna Karenina, and The Titan. “From a traumatic upbringing, he became something else, and as a result, he made this ideal that he was not,” Soller told us of his character. “And to be fair, he knew that a structure like the Fascist Empire could reward such a person, more than trying to imagine the life of every day.”
