‘The Boss’ Sasha Banks has delved back into a galaxy far, far away in order to unveil the schedule she had to keep in order to film her role in The Mandalorian and still compete in WWE.
Appearing as Mandalorian warrior, Koska Reeves, in the Disney+ Star Wars spin-off, the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion revealed that her scenes were actually filmed all the way back in February.
Talking to Brandon Davis of ComicBook, Sasha Banks shed some light on one of the busiest times of her career thus far:
“To be honest with you, 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 five 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 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. Whoever made that set, wow! Wow, wow, wow! It’s so breathtaking. And the whole time I was there, honestly, it never set in because I went from that straight back to WWE and I couldn’t tell anybody. So I just kind of always had to live in the moment and be present in everything that I was doing. So I was just like, all right, eventually, when I’m able to talk about it, I think that’s when it will probably set in that I’m part of something really, really cool and special.”
Sasha Banks has received rave reviews for her role in the popular series, which she made her debut on during the November 13 episode.
