Who is Luthen Rael, Stellan Skarsgård’s Andor character?

Andor may be a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but that doesn’t mean all of the characters in the new Disney+ show will be familiar to fans of the franchise.

The series follows Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor, which first premiered in A thug – which is itself a prequel to A new hope- and it follows the character in his years before joining the rebellion.

In thug, Cassian was a rebel fighter who, alongside Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and a ragtag crew, went on a mission to steal the Death Star plans, and Andor shows he was a rebel in a different way until he meets Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård).

Stellan Skarsgård’s Luthen is featured in the second episode of the series’ three-episode premiere, which premiered on Disney+ on Wednesday, September 21.

The character is a shopper who works with Bix Caleen (Adria Arjona), a mechanic who sells valuables to the likes of Luthen and is close friends with Cassian.

Through all three episodes, it is revealed that Luthen has been keen on meeting Cassian for some time, and Bix contacts him when Cassian asks him to sell him an NS9 Starpath unit to earn enough credits to escape his home planet Ferrix.

When Luther hears about the object, he immediately goes to meet it. He is the first person in the Rebellion to meet Cassian, and when they first meet, he reveals that it is actually Cassian himself who he wants to work with.

Calling him “special”, Luthen offers Cassian a way to escape after he becomes the target of Syril Karn (Kyle Soller) by suggesting that she leave the planet with him and work with him by joining the fight. against the Empire.

Details of Luthen’s background have yet to be revealed, but it’s clear the character has a long history of working with the Rebellion and has traveled the galaxy recruiting people he believes will be able to support the Rebellion. cause, like Cassian.

Notable members of the rebellion in Andor include Genevieve O’Reilly’s Mon Mothma and Forest Whittaker’s Saw Gerrera, both of which appeared in A thug alongside Luna.

Luthen will likely be the person to introduce Cassian to both characters, and he’ll also be in the prime position to act as a mentor for him during his early days in the Rebellion.

Cassian may have begun to rebel under the mentorship of his adoptive mother Maarva (Fiona Shaw), but now that he’s left the planet they lived on, it seems likely that Luthen will take his place as their guide.

The first three episodes of Andor are available to watch on Disney+ now, and the show will air on a weekly basis thereafter.
