Who Plays Davo Sculdun? Meet the Guest Actor from Andor Episode 10
**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Andor**
Tensions were running high during Andor Episode 10, where Mon Mothma was offered an outrageous proposal from the thug she resented and we reveal who plays Davo Sculdun.
Titled One Way Out, Episode 10 saw Cassian, Kino, and the inmates sprint ahead with their prison break, resulting in a full commandeer of Narkina 5. Elsewhere, we saw the brief meeting between Mon, Tay, and Davo that did not prove to be fruitful for anyone.
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.
Who is Davo Sculdun?
Davo Sculdun is revealed to be a male oligarch and banker, whom Mon Mothma refers to as a “thug” because of his bad reputation in Chandrila.
Davo is an original character created for the Disney Plus show, meaning the mob boss has no history in Star Wars canon yet.
During Episode 9, Tay Kolma insisted Mon needs a banker in order to withdraw a loan without rousing suspicion and Davo Sculdun was possibly the man for the job to conduct business under the radar.
Davo flaunted his position of power while attending the chancellor’s home and revealed that he was only willing to conduct business if his son was invited to meet Mon’s daughter, Leida, proposing the idea of an arranged marriage that Mon wanted nothing to do with.
