Gina Carano has said that she came to “an agreement” with The Mandalorian lead star Pedro Pascal over her political beliefs.

The actor, who appeared in the Disney Plus series as Cara Dune, will no longer be a part of any forthcoming Disney production after sharing an Instagram post seemingly comparing being a Republican today to being Jewish during the Holocaust.

In response to the post, Disney’s Lucasfilm called her remarks “abhorrent and unacceptable”.

Carano has now spoken out in a new interview with right-wing leaning websiteThe Daily Wire, which was released on Sunday (21 February).

The actor, who has a history of controversial comments, said she felt she has been “head-hunted” by Disney because she “wasn’t going along with the [studio’s] narrative”.

On her co-star Pascal, she said: “I adore Pedro. There’s so much love there still. I know he’s said and done some hurtful things. But we had an agreement after we realised we were a little bit politically different.

“We had an agreement that, first and foremost, you’re a human being. And you’re my friend first. We’re both passionate – we just think a little bit differently.”

Referencing a now deleted tweet in which Pascal compared supporters of Donald Trump to Nazis, Carano added: “I know that we both have misstepped on our tweets. We’re not perfect. We’re human beings. But he’s not a bad human being. He’s a sweet person.”

The Independent has contacted Disney for comment.
