OBI-WAN KENOBI Set Photos Confirm GAME OF THRONES Alum Indira Varma's Role - SPOILERS

Over the weekend, we got our first look at some photos from the set of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series, and we now have a new batch which leave little doubt as to the role Indira Varma will play!

The first round of photos from the U.K. set of Obi-Wan Kenobi found their way online over the weekend, giving us a look at star Ewan McGregor (though his costume was covered up) as the legendary Jedi along with several extras and supporting cast members. Now, we have some new snaps courtesy of the Star Wars Fan-Club Instagram page, and they confirm Indira Varma's role.

The previous photos gave us a blurry glimpse of the female Imperial Officer without her mask, but we now have a much clearer view of the actress as she walks past the camera, and it's definitely Varma.

There was speculation that the Game of Thrones alum might be playing Kenobi's love-interest Satine Kryze, but that's clearly not the case. Whether this mysterious "IMP" will emerge as the show's primary antagonist remains to be seen, but after Varma's ferocious turn as Ellaria Sand in GOT, we can only hope she's given the opportunity to sink her teeth into a similarly juicy role.

Specific plot details are under wraps, but we do know that Obi-Wan will be set between the events of Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope, and that Hayden Christensen will return as Darth Vader for a confrontation with his old master. There are also rumors that younger versions of both Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa will appear, but that's yet to be confirmed.

McGregor and Varma join Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie. Their characters have not been announced.

The Mandalorian director Deborah Chow is set to helm all episodes of the series, with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy on board as producer along-with Chow, Jason D. McGatlin (The Rise of Skywalker), Tracey Seaward (The Queen), and John Swartz (Rogue One).
