David Hayman Joins Cast of ‘Andor’ Disney+ Series

David Hayman will have a key role in the upcoming “Star Wars: Andor” series for Disney+.  The character he will play and the extent of his role in the story remain unknown.

The report comes from Scottish tabloid The Daily Record who says Hayman was spotted on the set by fans in Oban, Scotland when the series was filming there.  Hayman addressed the issue by saying the following:

“Everything was supposed to be top secret. About 500 film crew descended on Oban, and nobody was supposed to know what was happening.  But folk were coming up to me and asking if I was doing my Wonders of Scotland programme or Star Wars.  Everybody knew what was happening. It was hilarious.”

Hayman’s credits include mostly UK-based productions including Trial and Retribution, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, and Fisherman’s Friends.

“Andor” follows the adventures of Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion five years prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.

Previously announced cast includes Diego Luna, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgard, Fiona Shaw, Kyle Soller and Robert Emms.  Forest Whitaker will also reportedly reprise his role as Saw Gerrera and Ben Mendelsohn is rumored to return as Orson Krennic.

Toby Haynes will direct the first three episodes of “Andor.”  Writers include Stephen Schiff and Tony Gilroy.

American composer Nicholas Britell has been tapped to score the upcoming “Andor” series.

“Andor” will consist of 12 episodes and is expected to debut on Disney+ this summer.  Stellan Skarsgard recently confirmed “Andor” will have a second season.
