Marvel Star Rosario Dawson Wants To Play Live-Action Ahsoka Tahno

It looks like Rosario Dawson is interested in joining the Star Wars universe as one of the franchise's favorite (former) padawans, Ahsoka Tano.

Earlier this week one of Dawson's asked Marvel's television Night Nurse whether she'd be interested in a live-action role of a grown up Ahsoka Tano, Claire Temple gave a wildly positive reply.

While many Star Wars fans have been busy cringing over Kanye West's expressed interest in taking part in the galaxy far, far away, most would probably agree that Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage's ever reliable medic would make a good live-action Ahsoka. Not only does Dawson have some sort of facial semblance with Anakin's former padawan and leader but she seems to be following Ahsoka's story as well.

The last time we saw Ahsoka in DisneyXD's Star Wars Rebels, the Rebel leader was fighting off the remains of her master in an epic battle sequence with Darth Vader. Though no one in the resistance has heard of her since, fans are sure that Dave Filoni's kept Ahsoka alive. Based on Dawson's #Ahsokalives, the actress has been keeping track as well. Let's hope Lucasfilm decides to make a spinoff with Ahsoka in it.
