Sasha Banks was able to achieve a big goal by having a role in the Star Wars: The Mandalorian series.
It’s been reported that she shot scenes for the show in February but never took time off from WWE while filming her episodes. As a result, this led to a busy time for the current SmackDown Women’s Champion.
This is something she talked about while doing an interview with Brandon Davis of ComicBook.
“To be honest with you, Brandon, it honestly never set in. Every time I went to set, because I went straight from WWE from live national television, I would have to wake up at 5:00 in the morning, catch a flight and go straight to the trailer. And they’re like, “Why do you have glitter all over your face?” And I’m like, “I’m sorry. I’ve been Sasha Banks.” I would walk on set and I would just be like, “Oh my god, I can not believe that I’m here,” because the set was just so, so, so incredible. I literally felt that I was in a whole different galaxy, in a whole different world. I have no idea how they did that.”
She stated that the whole time she was on set it was breathtaking. When she wasn’t with WWE then she was filming and vice versa. She recalled having to live in the moment and be present in what she was doing. She thinks down the road it will sink in.
Her episode premiered on Disney+ on November 13. She plays a character named Koska Reeves, who is one of the two Mandalorian warriors working for Bo-Katan Kryze.
