Ahsoka: Rosario Dawson on Developing Character with Ashley Eckstein

Star Wars: Ahsoka star Rosario Dawson said it was a "blessing" being able to work with Ashley Eckstein on developing the character.

If we were picking big winners coming out of Star Wars Celebration 2023, we could make a strong argument that what Dave Filoni, Jon Favreau, and the team behind Disney+ & Lucasfilm's Rosario Dawson-starring Star Wars: Ahsoka had to share should claim the top prize. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Dawson shares what it was like working with "The Clone Wars" voice actress Ashley Eckstein to bring Ahsoka Tano to life. Dawson enjoys & appreciates having Eckstein as a resource regarding the character and being able to build upon the fandom that Eckstein has created for the character via social media. In the clip below, Dawson shares just how much she respects & appreciates how Eckstein has built up the character over the years and the passion she brings to her work.
