The Mandalorian season 2, episode 3 includes a few brand new Mandalorians. Here’s who plays the characters and where you might know them from.
Here are the actors who play the new Mandalorians in The Mandalorian season 2, episode 3. The second season of The Mandalorian set up a broad premise to include more members of famous warriors. Din Djarin’s (Pedro Pascal) mission is to find other Mandalorians who can tell him about the Jedi so he can return The Child aka Baby Yoda to his kind. Although the season 2 premiere included a tease of Boba Fett’s return with Temuera Morrison’s appearance, the second episode didn’t end with Din completing his mission to find more.
Episode 3, titled “The Heiress,” began with Din, Baby Yoda, and Frog Lady arriving at their destination on Trask. Frog Lady’s husband was then able to point Din in the right direction to find more of his kind, although that led to the local Quarrens attempting to kill him and Baby Yoda. They were rescued by a squad of three new Mandalorians, and Din agreed to work with them in exchange for learning the location of a Jedi – revealed to be Ahsoka Tano.

The encounter with other Mandalorians was eye-opening for Din, as they don’t live by the code he grew up on, and casually remove their helmets. This allowed The Mandalorian to feature the actors and actresses who were underneath the Mandalorian armor. Although two of them are brand new characters to Star Wars lore, one is familiar to those who have seen the Star Wars animated series.
