The British edition of Small Screen, citing its own sources at Lucasfilm, reported that Lars Mikkelsen will play the role of Admiral Thrawn in the series about Ahsoka Tano. The Danish actor gave voice to the character in the animated “Rebels”, so this move is quite justified.
Previously, Lars was only considered for this role, but the publication assures that the contract has already been signed.
The show about Ahsoka Tano should be a continuation of the plot of one of the episodes of the second season of “The Mandalorian”, in which the Jedi searches for the missing Ezra Bridger and Admiral Thrawn. No official synopsis has been released, and Dave Filoni is responsible for creating the show.
Lars Mikkelsen is also known for his roles in the TV series Sherlock (Charles Augustus Magnussen), House of Cards (President Petrov) and The Witcher (Stregobor). He is the older brother of Mads Mikkelsen.
