In this episode of the show we go interview style to talk with Dominic Pace, who should be featured in this week’s episode of The Mandalorian as a standout bounty hunter hanging around Greef’s bounty hunter hideout.
I talk to Dominic about his Star Wars fandom and how it led into his career as a character actor. We then move into how he got the role on The Mandalorian, which proves the Force is with him, and then from there we talk about his time on set and what it was like to channel his brand new bounty hunter character, which he would like to become known as Gecko.
Dominic shares what it meant to him as a life long fan to get the role, and how he plans to pay it forward if his character become immortalized in the fandom, much like other background Star Wars characters who have become cult legends with fans. Think Dengar, 4-LOM, Zuckuss, IG-88, or Bossk. Dominic’s Gecko has that potential thanks to his unique look, which you can see below.
He also shares what it was like to be on set, and provides a few minor details about the shoot, and the type of movie magic was used to pull off some of the sets. For example, did you know that a lot of the backgrounds are 4K LED screens? Me neither, so I learned tidbits like this and others while talking to Mr. Pace.
Tune in above, and if you want to check in on Dominic, or take him up on his offer at the end of the cast, then make sure to follow him on Instagram.
