‘Mandalorian’, ‘Deadpool’ Star Gina Carano Delivers Denver Fan Expo

Gina Carano starred in ‘The Mandalorian’ until she was fired following backlash to several of her controversial social media posts.

DENVER – Star of “The Mandalorian” and “Deadpool” Gina Carano was added to this summer’s celebrity list at Denver Fan Lounge.

Carano played Cara Dune on the hit Disney+ show for two seasons until she was fired from the show by Lucasfilm in February 2021.

Carano joins other ‘Star Wars’ actors at Fan Expo Denver, including ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ and ‘The Mandalorian’ star Ming-Na Wen as well as ‘The Mandalorian’ hero and ‘Rocky’ Carl Weathers.

Anthony Daniels, who appeared as C-3PO in all nine “Star Wars” films of the Skywalker saga, will appear at the event in July.

Carano has been accused of mocking mask-wearing during the pandemic and sharing misinformation about voter fraud, according to Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. It has been reported that she is being considered as a main character in the upcoming “Rangers of the New Republic”, another “Star Wars” series for Disney+.
