With The Clone Wars Season Five wrapping up tomorrow morning and Ahsoka Tano's fate dangerously uncertain, there's never been a better time to talk about the evolution and future of everyone's favorite Togruta. With that in mind, IGN has just posted a new interview with Ahsoka voice actress Ashley Eckstein. Here's an excerpt:
IGN: Was this one where you only learning the specifics via the scripts or were you given any heads-up about where it might go beforehand?
Eckstein: I as given a heads-up beforehand of where it would go. Dave wanted to tell me before I went into the studio for all of these. Because it was pretty dramatic, he didn’t want me to find out right before. And he also wanted to give me a chance to prepare for it. We actually had an exchange over email with some questions and answers, where I’d ask him, like, 20 questions. [Laughs] And he was so kind to give me pretty lengthy answers on Ahsoka’s motivation and what’s going on in her mind about this whole incident and being framed and being on the run and then being caught and going on trial, everything. I just really wanted to get inside of Ahsoka’s mind, and he was able to explain it all to me. It was important for me as an actress to understand it all and get inside Ahsoka’s head.
