Who is Susanna White, Andor's "Astounding" Episode 6 Director?

**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Andor**

Andor has already received praise for its sophisticated execution, but that’s nothing compared to the praise Susanna White is receiving. We introduce you to the director behind Andor Episode 6.

Episode 6 saw the rebel heist in full swing as Cassian, Vel, Skeen, and co moved to steal the Imperial payroll from their dam base. The group acted under the cover of the spectacle that was the Eye of Aldhani and their escape was not without casualties.

Created by Tony Gilroy for Disney Plus, Andor is a prequel series to Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, returning Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Set five years before the Jyn Erso-led project, Andor also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Fiona Shaw.

Twitter is currently alight with praise for director Susanna White after the spectacle that was Episode 6 of Andor, titled The Eye.

Applause has been given for the entry’s build of tension, stunning visuals, and angsty action, receiving similar praise to Bryce Dallas Howard’s direction on The Mandalorian.

Host Alden Diaz was adamant that White should be nominated for Andor’s “astounding” episode and the fanbase was in awe of the entire escape sequence.

Who is Susanna White?

Episode 7 Preview

Andor Episode 7 is scheduled to release on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, on Disney Plus.

With the rebel heist now concluded, a rogue and richer Cassian will be embarking on a new chapter in Episode 7 and there’s a good chance Luthen and Karn will be tailing him.

Mon Mothma will also have a first-hand look at the internal fallout the rebellion has caused, which will encourage her and Luthen to advance.

With Cassian now alone, we may see him pick up the trail for his sister again, which could involve a return to Ferrix.
