Today on the #LockdownWithWeekend Instagram series, actor-filmmaker-gamer Janina Gavankar is set to talk about all things Star Wars: the legacy of the franchise, viral fan theories and the gaming industry, too

Janina Gavankar is an actor, a filmmaker, a classical musician, a voice actor, an activist, a gamer, an investor, the first actor on Twitter... the list goes on. Hollywood knows Gavankar from her roles on The Morning Show, The Way Back, and most recently Space Force. And the tech industry knows her as Star Wars: Battlefront II’s Iden Versio, the Imperial agent, in full CG. She is also set to star in the second series of successful Disney series The Mandalorian — the Mumbai-origin multi-hyphenate is keeping audiences on their toes with her creativity.

For The Hindu Weekend, I spoke with Gavankar in February, but in this edition of #LockdownWithWeekend, she reveals her unusual approach to entertainment and its diversity, and how she stays driven. Plus, we share some fan theories with her about the Star Wars legacy and invite her thoughts on them — it would be criminal not to!

This edition of the #LockdownWithWeekend series featuring Janina Gavankar is on Tuesday June 2 at 9 pm IST / 8.30 am PT.

UPDATE: The scheduled Instagram live with The Hindu Weekend and Janina Gavankar has been postponed out of respect to the Black Lives Matter movement and Blackout Tuesday.
