With her movie-star looks and world-champion fighting spirit, Gina Carano (Check out her hot shots above) became the world’s biggest star in women’s MMA.
Now she’s set to become a Disney star, as part of the upcoming Star Wars spin-off series, The Mandalorian.
The episodic drama, which launches on Disney’s streaming service Disney+ on November 12, follows the life of a bounty hunter, with Carano playing one of the starring roles as Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper-turned-mercenary who fought for the Rebel Alliance in the civil war.
The role sees her star alongside Pedro Pascal and Carl Weathers, who became a worldwide superstar when he played Apollo Creed in the legendary Rocky movies.
Carano was the face of Women’s MMA, but that run came to an end in a first-round TKO defeat at the hands of Cris Cyborg in August 2009 in a bout that proved to be her last as a professional mixed martial artist.
