Anyone who has seen Boba Fett in action knows that he does not fit into the hero category. As a bounty hunter, he sold himself to the highest bidder and fulfilled the assignment of delivering Han Solo for credits. He even went after Luke Skywalker after striking a deal with Darth Vader. Ming-Na Wen, who plays Fennec Shand in The Mandalorian and Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, has defined the two characters as antiheroes. He has done so in statements to The Direct.
“We are antiheroes, I like to play antiheroes because I think you get more out of it.” The actress has spoken about the relationship between Boba and Fennec: “There is an alliance between the two. They are united by the fact that they have both had a near death experience.. And there is a code that both of them respect ”.
On a more personal level, Ming-Na Wen has entertained her co-star. Temuera Morrison, the face behind Jango Fett and all the clones in the Star Wars prequels, has returned to the saga to put himself in the shoes of Boba Fett: “Temuera is spectacular. In some ways completely different from me, which is good, because he’s less nerdy than me. He appreciates the work that goes into everything and I’m a geek with everything. “
