The Acolyte episode 6 introduces a new Jedi apprentice working with elder Jedi Master Vernestra Rwoh. Mog is about as bright as Yord, but twice as alive, and played by British comedy powerhouse Harry Trevaldwyn.

Harry Trevaldwyn Was Already A Household Name Before The Acolyte

Harry Trevaldwyn's big break arrived in 2019, well before he landed the role of Mog in The Acolyte. He appeared in Netflix's young Henry V biography, The King, as Dartmouth.

He later on portrayed TV characters such as Ollie Rogers in 2022's Ten Percent, Matthew in the 2022 mini sitcom series I Hate You, Jordan in Smothered and Stan on the 2024 show The Outlaws, along with more, smaller roles.

Outside of acting, Trevaldwyn was the writer and associate producer for the 2022 short film Billi, and also has a sizeable following as an online comedian, creating viral video skits.

He is best known for his video, The Bad NYE Party You're Missing and his most prominent character is Smug Mother, who usually mistreats the off-screen stepdaughter, Natalie.
