There were plenty of cameos to spot in The Mandalorian this week, but some guest appearances went unseen. We reveal who Seth Gabel, Bryce Dallas Howard’s husband, plays in Chapter 22 and we discuss the cast of season 3 episode 6.
Star Wars fans were rather taken aback when singer Lizzo served a surprising cameo in Chapter 22, but her guest role comes down to being a super fan of the show.
Created by Jon Favreau for Disney Plus and starring Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin who is hired to track down a child known as Grogu – more commonly Baby Yoda – but ends up doing everything he can to protect him from Imperial forces.
Who does Seth Gabel play in The Mandalorian Chapter 22?
Seth Gabel voices the Bartender Droid seen behind the bar of The Resistor – a local bar for droids – and the actor is the husband of the episode’s director, Bryce Dallas Howard, in real life.
The bartender is interrogated by Din Djarin and Bo-Katan after they found a spark tag on a faulty droid labeling the bar.
In their investigation, the Mandalorians are told by the bartender that the malfunctioning droids all consumed the same batch of Nepenthe, which then leads them back to the tampering Commissioner Helgait.
Seth Gabel and Bryce Dallas Howard married in 2006
Howard met Gabel during their time at New York University, where the couple ended up dating for around five years.
The couple then married in June 2006 and they had their first child together in 2007, shortly after their wedding.
Howard and Gabel now have two children together, Theodore and Beatrice, and the family currently reside in upstate New York.
