EXCLUSIVE: The former MMA fighter turned actress is no longer with her UTA agency, a spokesperson confirmed to Deadline tonight.
It comes after Gina Carano made controversial statements on social media.
Lucasfilm released a statement earlier this evening saying, “Gina Carano is currently not employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans to be employed in the future. Nonetheless, his social media posts denigrating people because of their cultural and religious identity are heinous and unacceptable. “
I am told that Carano was not committed to continuing with season 3 of The Mandalorian as bounty hunter Cara Dune, a role she played for two seasons on the hit Disney + series. That said, her story came to a standstill as if we were seeing more of her. Not to mention, Disney + had plans for Mandalorian benefits including Rangers of the new republic. I was told when news of this latest series leaked in the fall that a deal was not in place for Carano.
The actress, who is used to speaking on social media, crossed the line with comments comparing the current divided political climate to Nazi Germany, exclaiming: “Jews have been beaten in the streets , not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors. In a post from Tik Tok that has since been deleted.
The #FireGinaCarano hashtag is starting to catch on, with those on social media tagging Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau, Disney, Disney Plus, Star Wars and Lucasfilm.
Carano and his supporters have tried to evolve the #weloveginacarano hashtag, but to little effect.
The daily beast exclusively learned that Carano was ditched by her ID publicists last fall due to her right-wing social media activity, which included statements about wearing a face mask and voter fraud. She was briefly with the public relations firm.
