The wait is finally over as we enter the final weekend before Christmas, and to get you up to speed for the sequel, we introduce you to who plays Varang in Avatar: Oona Chaplin.
The Way of Water is releasing as a cinema exclusive, meaning the only place you’ll be able to watch the sequel will be in theatres. However, it will release on Disney Plus in 2023.
Directed by James Cameron with a screenplay by Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver, Avatar: The Way of Water serves as the long-anticipated sequel to the 2009 feature, based on a story the writers created with Josh Friedman and Shame Salerno.
Who is Varang?
AvatarSequels describes Varang as “a strong and vibrant central character who spans the entire saga of the sequels.”
The character is said to not be appearing in Avatar: The Way of Water, but Varang is credited to be appearing in Avatar 3, 4 and 5.
Since James Cameron shot the Avatar sequels back to back, a number of actors have been hired even though their characters won’t appear in The Way of Water.
Who Plays Varang in Avatar? Meet Oona Chaplin
Varang is played by Spanish actor Oona Chaplin in the Avatar sequels.
Beginning a career back in 2007 in the British show Spooks, Chaplin has since starred in popular series Black Mirror, Sherlock, and Taboo.
Chaplin’s most recognizable role is her portrayal of Talisa Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones.
Also, in an interview with uInterview on YouTube, Chaplin was asked what it was like to work with James Cameron:
“He’s a very passionate man, he’s a very bright man, he’s a deeply caring man.”
