Last week we were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the third season of The Mandalorian filming at Long Beach, California – away from their usual spots of Manhattan Beach Studios, and the train yard location in El Segundo. We got to witness a few days worth of filming, and some scenes play out. As expected we saw some familiar faces, and helmets, but one stood out to us…Axe Woves.
The character of Woves was noticeably absent in The Mandalorian season two finale, but Bo-Katan Kryze actress, Katee Sackhoff, hinted at some bigger plans for Woves when appearing on The Sith Council podcast, “He just wasn’t there and there’s a reason. It’s just one of those things where I don’t know if the story is something I’m supposed to tell. So he’s just not there.”
Woves actor, Simon Kassianides, took to Instagram following the season two finale and responded to fans asking why Woves wasn’t in the finale saying, “There will be answers. This is the way”. I think I might know the answer, but more on that in the coming days as I’m piecing it together with more from the scenes that were filmed.
We managed to snap some shots of Woves from a fair distance, but our guy on the ground felt very confident in the actor being Kassianides, and a source told me he expected him to return for these scenes that were shot. Kassianides was seen working with Katee Sackhoff on set, and the latter was seen shooting scenes with Din Djarin, and Bryce Dallas Howard was shooting various scenes at the location.
