Fall Signing Series: Lauren Mary Kim to Sign for SWAU!
SWAU is excited to announce the second actor partaking in our Fall Signing Series, Lauren Mary Kim! Kim is a stunt performer who captivated fans with her performance as the motion-capture actor for Ahsoka Tano’s fight scenes in the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Kim also performed the action scenes for The Armorer in The Mandalorian Season One finale, Chapter Eight.
Kim’s contributions to The Clone Wars were well documented during the final four episodes of the show, in the Siege of Mandalore arc. In the fight scenes between Ahsoka Tano and Maul, Clone Wars creator Dave Filoni brought in Kim and Ray Park to work as motion-capture artists to perform the fight sequences in the episodes between the characters. What they created is considered by some to be among the best lightsaber battles in Star Wars history. Kim also was in costume for The Armorer for the final scene of the character, when she fought off a wave of Stormtroopers in the Mandalorian covert on Nevarro.
Kim has had roles as a stunt performer in some of the biggest franchises in film and television history, including Star Trek (2009), Furious 7 (2015), and most recently in Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018) and in the Netflix rendition of Daredevil.
Any fan of The Clone Wars who is working on a cast-piece for Season 7, or someone who is adding names to their Mandalorian cast piece, would be keen to add Kim to their projects, given her important role in creating memorable moments in each show. Anyone working on a collection focusing on The Armorer would also want to add her to their collections.
Orders for Kim, 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!
