Was it a special treat or an unpredictable surprise? Star Wars fans are still scratching their heads over reports claiming John Wayne grandson as the man behind Mandalorian mask.
While the Star Wars Mandalorian has Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal behind the mask, sometimes they require a stunt double. And believe it or not, reports hint that it’s none other than John Wayne grandson underneath.
Despite being hired as a stunt double, John Wayne Grandson is being used in character reigns too
Grandson of America’s most famous movie cowboy, Brendan Wayne, is at the center of media attention recently.
Reports claim how he was hired to be the stunt double in The Mandalorian.He appears in episodes 3 to 6, as a double for the masked character.
With that being said, he also recently became the character reins of the episode titled Sanctuary, for which he was never intended for in the first place.
While the star of the hit The Searchers is none other than John Wayne himself, it’s nice to see his family circle expanding into the scene.
Also, it’s so fascinating to see how his grandson is such an integral and official part of this Star Wars universe series.
Co-stars are all praise for John Wayne Grandson’s role in Double- the Mandalorian
Fans got a pleasant surprise in the recent awakening of the episode’s release.
People can’t help but talk about the iconic legend, John Wayne’s grandson, Brendan.It’s particularly interesting to note how he holds his own fight and ground in the industry.
Unsurprisingly, everyone praised Brendan Wayne across the board. Famous co-stars as well as director Bryce Dallas Howard went on to comment about his brilliant performance.
The director stated, ‘He absolutely just brought everything to that character, and we were able to find the moments and figure them out together.’
John Wayne grandson, Brendan, isn’t new to the acting industry
This isn’t the first instance where John Wayne grandson, Brendan Wayne, has managed to steal hearts around the globe.
The actor is giving breakthrough performances since 2001.Some great examples of small roles include Angels, Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D, CSI, and Cowboys and Aliens.
Brendan reportedly started work on all episodes during season 1, while he continues his work on the second season too. Brandon spent a lot of time and effort to get his movements with Pascal right. The pair attempted to coordinate their body language. Hence, they worked closely together quite often.
Regarding Pascal, Wayne stated:
[Pascal] would ask me, and I would ask him the same question, which is: ‘Why did you move like this during that moment?’ We would go back and forth.
The great thing about him is he’s not impressed with himself. He’s just an actor. And I mean that in a good way, not the bad way. He likes to learn and he likes to collaborate and he’s very good at it.
This isn’t the first time that Star Wars has disguised stunt doubles under movie characters
While this may seem quite cool and appealing to many, this isn’t the first instance of its kind. Star Wars has, on plenty of occasions, used stunt doubles as leading movie characters.
Other common examples include James Earl Jones who never ever wore the Dearth Vader helmet that took place during the classic trilogy. And the best bit being, no one noticed a thing. That’s how fantastic it is.
John Wayne grandson, Brendan Wayne’s performance was outstanding to say the least. He shines through with his wonderful presence, despite being a double stunt. And just in case you might have missed it, how about glancing back through episodes 3 to 6?
