Adria Arjona Comments on Playing Bix Caleen in ‘Andor’ Season 2: “You’re Seeing the Evolution of These Characters”

Adria Arjona Comments on Playing Bix Caleen in ‘Andor Season 2

In February 2022, star Stellan Skarsgård suggested that ‘Andor’ would have a second season, with filming starting in late 2022. In April, cinematographer Adriano Goldman mentioned that the initial plan for five seasons had changed, and the series was now expected to last three seasons.

At the Star Wars Celebration in May, Lucasfilm confirmed a 12-episode second season. Gilroy explained that the original five-season plan was deemed “physically impossible” due to the series’ scale, so they decided to conclude with one more season that directly leads into the events of Rogue One.

According to the latest reports, the second season of ‘Andor’ will have a unique structure mostly in the context of massive time jumps, which presents challenges to the whole crew. In a recent interview with Collider Bix Caleen actress Adria Arjona discussed all the challenges she had to overcome to play aging Bix, as well as gave away some interesting things about the structure of the show:

“Tony Gilroy is one of the most brilliant minds I have ever had the honor of picking. The structure for Season 2 was one that I’ve never heard anyone do before. It takes a course of time to get to right before Rogue One . He had a whole season to get to the end of Rogue One , and he’s like, ‘How am I going to do it?'”

Bix Caleen has one of the most important roles in the show, serving as the closest ally of Cassian Andor.

“In between every three episodes, there’s a year, and then there’s three more episodes, then a year, and then three more. So, you’re seeing the evolution of these characters through such a large span of time, and I’ve never done that.”

Originally slated for an August 2024 release, “Andor” faced production delays attributed to the SAG-AFTRA strike, leading to speculation that its release would likely be postponed to sometime in 2025. Have something to add? Let us know in the comments below!
