It seems as though many fans of The Mandalorian are calling for Lucasfilm to recast Cara Dune after Gina Carano was fired from the role. One of the names that’s been popping up has been Lucy Lawless.
Lucy Lawless, just in case you didn’t know, played Xena in Xena: Warrior Princess and was something of a sensation in the role. People loved her, and we still do, and now fans are trying to get Disney to cast her as Cara Dune in the future Star Wars shows.
The New Zealand actor has also starred in Battlestar Galactica and was also in Spartacus: Blood and Sand (2010), its prequel Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (2011), and its sequel Spartacus: Vengeance. If there’s anyone who could really do Cara Dune justice, it could be Lucy Lawless.
Should Lucy Lawless play Cara Dune in the future Star Wars shows?

Another name that been thrown into the mix has been Lana Parrilla. She seems to be a pretty popular choice of the role, and she would also suit it pretty well.
In fact, there’s a petition on Change.org that’s making the round in which the person behind said petition says Lana would be the perfect choice to take on the role following Gina Carano’s sacking.
Here’s what was written on the Change.org petition to have Lana Parrilla to replace Gina Carano as Cara Dune in the Star Wars shows:
Gina Carano has finally been fired for her abhorrent racist and transphobic remarks. However, it leaves the role of Cara Dune open-ended. Should her character simply disappear, be killed off, or are the shoes just the right size for another? Perhaps Lana Parrilla, one of the lead’s in ABC’s “Once Upon A Time.” She’s no stranger to Disney and would fit the role perfectly. Lana would be a great addition alongside Pedro Pascal & co.
