Another new character poster from The Book of Boba Fett has been released. This week, the spotlight goes to the unnamed character from Boba Fett’s flashbacks in "Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm." The unnamed character is the back alley surgeon that boba brings to Fennec Shand hoping that he can save her life after she was shot in the gut by Din Djarin (making a slight retcon to The Mandalorian). The character’s name is Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner, a legendary bass player who has worked with Childish Gambino (fellow Star Wars star Donald Glover), Mac Miller, and Kendrick Lamar.
You can check out the character poster below:
As of now, the appearance of Thundercat is a little more than a cameo, but there is a possibility that he could be back later. "Mods" have been a recurring theme in The Book of Boba Fett series, as Boba Fett recruited a group of modded street toughs into his growing team. Drash is their leader and is played by the Yellowjackets star Sophie Thatcher. The actress says she’s not done on the show yet.
"Most of it was on the backlot. I have something else in the volume, but I also don't know how much I can say. You can assume my character might be in more stuff," Sophie Thatcher said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter when she was asked about working on the Star Wars series. "I don't disappear. I don't even know if I'm allowed to say that."
"It's such an honor to be a part of the Star Wars family because it brings in some of the most insanely talented people. Aesthetically, it's so cool, too. The costumes that they gave me had so much detail, and I've never worked on anything like that before. There's obviously a lot of pressure going into something with the biggest fanbase of all time. So I had to delete Twitter and Reddit because I didn't want to look at anything. It's inevitable that people are going to say what they want, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. I play a really cool character. I've been getting funny comments as people say I look like Julian Casablancas, Nina Hagen or Joan Jett. Basically, they say I look like anyone with a mullet, which is funny," she continued.
