Carano is perhaps best known as an MMA fighter, and had been called by some as the face of women’s MMA. She has also appeared in films, such as Haywire as Mallory Kane, Fast & Furious 6 as Riley Hicks, and Deadpool as Angel Dust.
We don’t have any details as to what her role will be in the show, but she’s the second cast member we’ve heard of joining the show, along with Pedro Pascal as the lead character, the Mandalorian.
The show focuses on that aforementioned Mandalorian, who is a gunfighter in the far reaches of space in the years following the fall of the Empire. Jon Favreau is creating the show, with people like Dave Filoni, Taika Waititi, and Bryce Dallas Howard among the group of directors. The show doesn’t yet have a premiere date but will be released on Disney+, likely sometime next year.
