Maurice Irvin takes on the role of Senator Mawood, a prominent politician within the New Republic on Ahsoka.
Irvin’s acting credits include appearances in productions such as As Night Comes, A Winter Rose, Grey’s Anatomy, and Snowfall.
Speaking to Vanity Fair about the series, director Dave Filoni explains: “Ahsoka is a continuous story. It is definitely driving toward a goal, in my mind, as opposed to being little singular adventures. That’s what I want the character to be doing, and I think that’s what fans want now. They have such a relationship with her.
“I’ve only recently started to understand that all those kids that watched Clone Wars are now a lot older,” he added. “They’re very excited about all the things they grew up with, as they should be.”
