You would think the lockdown also gave Indira some time to immerse herself in Star Wars lore.

Not enough.

“It’s brand new to me and really embarrassing,” she admitted. “I keep getting called on stuff.

“But I played Princess Leia in the playground when I was six without seeing her – I had long braids so I could do my hair.

“I’ve looked at all the old ones now, but I wouldn’t say I’m up to date,” Varma added. “I still don’t know what order they all go.”

That said, there’s a good chance that once Obi-Wan Kenobi airs, Indira and all of her castmates will know exactly where the series fits in Star Wars canon.
