Star Wars: Tales of the Empire is hitting Disney+ tomorrow in honor of May 4th AKA Star Wars Day, and the new show is a character-focused animated anthology series that follows Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) and Barriss Offee (Meredith Salenger). Inosanto first played Morgan Elsbeth in live-action in Star Wars: The Mandalorian before playing the villain again in Star Wars: Ahoksa. Recently, ComicBook had the chance to chat with Inosanto about the new series, and she talked about playing the character in animation.

“You know, it’s interesting because I was watching Pedro Pascal behind the scenes when he was doing the recordings for Mandalorian, so I go, ‘Oh, that’s probably gonna be what I would do.’ It is. I mean, I don’t know how you can arrive in a booth and not do those things to physically prep you, or at least that’s my process,” Inosanto explained.

“I do all the breathing. I sometimes, if I knew the fight scene was right, I will jump in place,” she added with a laugh. “I’m literally in my own actress bubble, pulling creatively from my imagination and seeing in the space and time, whatever is happening in the scene. So, yeah, I don’t see that much of a difference, you know, other than I’m in a recording booth.”

“I love doing animation. I love it,” Inosanto added.
