Who Played Sabine Wren In Star Wars?

Sabine, Natasha, Tiya,

Sabine Wren will be a crucial player in the Star Wars series, Ahsoka with Tiya Sircar (Alex Inc) originating the role in the series Star Wars Rebels and Australian actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo (Day Shift, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny) being cast as Sabine in live-action. A Mandalorian warrior, Sabine is taught by Ahsoka Tano in the aftermath of Kanan Jarrus’s death in lightsaber combat.

Tiya introduced the audience to Sabine’s stubbornness and humour. At the same time, Natasha will take the physical aspects of the character’s prowess as a warrior and throw them into the live-action realm.

Sabine’s Achievements In The Star Wars Franchise

Sabine is a formidable opponent who has wielded the darksaber, the former weapon of the Mandalorian Jedi, Tarre Vizsla. She then handed the weapon to its rightful owner, Bo-Katan Kryze, the true leader of Mandalore. Moreover, she has also gone after Fenn Rau, a warrior who shot down and almost killed Hera Syndulla.

She also went on a massive journey of her own when she reunited with her family with whom she was estranged.

Sabine Wren In The Star Wars Series, Ahsoka

It’s clear from Natasha’s portrayal of Sabine in the Star Wars franchise that she is doing Tiya proud by continuing where she left the character in 2018 when the Star Wars series Star Wars Rebels ended. The stubbornness is very much present in the trailers, and so is the snark.

When we catch up with Sabine in the Star Wars series, Ahsoka, she is acting out due to her obsession with finding Ezra. It annoys Lothal’s governor, Ryder Azardi, who had expected her to be present at the mural unveiling.

Sabine’s constant clashes with Ahsoka aren’t entirely out of malice. She has fought so hard to find. Ezra and bring him home. At the same time, she has formed a close bond with Hera’s young son, Jacen, who refers to her as “Aunt Sabine.” If there is one thing the Star Wars franchise is known for its the concept of Found Family.

The Ghost crew, even where the group stands in Ahsoka, is still Sabine’s family, especially after what happened to her biological family.

While we’ve seen her relationship with Ahsoka in the trailer, it’s interesting to see how Natasha’s iteration of Sabine meshes with Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s version of Hera Syndulla and Eman Esfandi’s Ezra Bridger.
