Fall Signing Series: Omid Abtahi to Sign for SWAU!
SWAU is proud to announce the first actor participating in our Fall Signing Series, Omid Abtahi! Abtahi is known to Star Wars fans for his role as Dr. Pershing in the DisneyPlus phenomenon The Mandalorian. Dr. Pershing appears in two episodes: Chapter One where Mando is given the tracking fob, as well as Chapter Three where Din Djarin returns to The Client’s location to retrieve the baby.
Prior to his work in Star Wars, Abtahi graced television screens as Salim in the Starz television show American Gods; the crime drama Those Who Kill; and played the character Homes from District 13 in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 2. He is also a distinguished voice actor, having portrayed the character Amis in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as given his voice to many video games over the last decade, including the Call of Duty and Diablo franchises.
Abtahi is on a small list of names of actors who appeared in multiple episodes of The Mandalorian in Season One, and would be an easy addition to any cast piece being worked on. One of the plot drivers for the early episodes as the man who takes The Child in for experiments, Abtahi’s character serves as one of Mando’s early adversaries. Cast pieces for Season One should all have a spot open for his signature.
Orders for Abtahi, as well as all of the upcoming Fall Signer Series actors, will go on sale Saturday, August 15th, at 12pm ET. Stay locked on target to SWAU’s social media as we continue the announcements this week with more Signing Series names!
