Rosario Dawson[1] is an actress who portrays Ahsoka Tano in the Disney+ live-action TV series The Mandalorian[1] and The Book of Boba Fett.[2] She will reprise the role for the spin-off show Ahsoka.[3] She is known for roles such as Gail in the 2005 film Sin City, the lawyer JR in the drama series Jane the Virgin, and Claire Temple in the Marvel Cinematic Universe television series Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.

Dawson attended Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute with future Anakin Skywalker actor Hayden Christensen, and later co-starred with him in the film Shattered Glass. She was cast as Ahsoka Tano in part due to a popular tweet that suggested her for the part.[4]

In "Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger," the sixth episode of The Book of Boba Fett,[2] Dawson did not learn that her character would interact with Luke Skywalker until the day of filming. She was very excited that she got to work with Mark Hamill,[5] who provided Skywalker's voice in the episode.[2]
