Who Plays the Male Urodel Vetch in Andor Episode 1 on Disney Plus?

**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Andor**

It’s common knowledge that a number of prolific actors have appeared in stealthy cameos as Stormtroopers many times before, which is why every Star Wars character that conceals the true identity of the actor is now being scrutinized. We reveal who plyas Vetch in Andor Episode 1.

Previous famous cameos include Zach Braff’s hidden appearance as alien Freck in the Disney Plus series Obi-Wan Kenobi.

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.

Meet Vetch

Andor Episode 1 introduced a younger Cassian Andor as a guy who owes a lot of people money on Fennix.

One such person he bumps into is Nurchi, who doesn’t want Cassian to dismiss him while he still owes him money.

This is when the male Urodel Vetch comes into play, who was asked by Nurchi to stand behind Cassian to make him feel intimidated.

The gray and pink alien turned out to be rather friendly and was very forthcoming with Cassian.
