Gina Carano grants her first interview after her dismissal from Lucasfilm accusing the company of harassing its employees.
The premiere of The Mandalorian has been a revolution both in the streaming world and in the Star Wars universe and as such, it has been the starting point of many other productions that have been born from what was seen in the series starring Pedro Pascal , some who will succeed and others who will not.
And among the latter is the series that Gina Carano was going to star as Cara Dune , the faithful companion of the Mandalorian that we have seen in the two seasons released, however, after a series of tweets in which she denied the Holocaust, the actress was farewell to Lucasfilm and the series about the rebel soldier canceled.
And now, a week after what happened, Carano has given his first interview to talk about what happened, and of course, it has been for the Ben Saphiro Show, a well-known American political commentator from the more conservative branch. In the first minutes of the interview, which is published this Sunday, to which Deadline has had access, the actress accuses Lucasfilm of “harassing” its employees.
“I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before,” the actress will tell Shapiro with whom she has a new movie deal. “I’m not the only one that’s ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply, I could share a story which would turn things around in the media but I can’t because it would sell out a friend…Everyone is afraid of losing their job.”.”explains Carano in the interview, in which he also tells that he learned of his dismissal like the rest of the world, through social networks.
“How I found out was that I looked on the internet, and you know, you check your Twitter and I’m trending and the ‘fire Gina Carano’ hashtag worked.”
But she also says she received an email by accident from a Disney staffer following the social media reaction to her posts.
“They accidentally sent me an email, which was very enlightening, so I knew. I knew they were paying attention. I know there were some people who went to bat for me, but I know that they didn’t win out at the end.”
