Star Wars: The Mandalorian’s Gina Carano Praises Director Deborah Chow

The penultimate episode of the first season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian dropped on Disney+ today and was the second episode of the new Disney+ series to be directed by Deborah Chow. Chow has helmed episodes of big series such as American Gods, Mr. Robot, and Better Call Saul and will soon be taking the reigns on the upcoming series about Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi. Chow's two The Mandalorian episodes, "The Sin" and "The Reckoning," have been met with high praise. In fact, Gina Carano, who plays Cara Dune on the series, recently took to Instagram to commend Chow's hard work.
