Star Wars Actor Supports Death Star Explodes Due To Minor Character Theory

Star Wars fan theories are always circulating, but frequent franchise actor Sam Witwer has voiced his support for one particular Death Star explosion theory. The theory spawns from his role in the most recent Star Wars live-action series, Andor. Andor was created by showrunner Tony Gilroy and has featured many characters from his Star Wars spinoff film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The cast is headlined by Diego Luna, Adriana Arjona, Stellan Skarsgård, Genevieve O’Reilly, Kyle Soller, Denise Gough, and Faye Marsay. Season 1 was a critical hit, and viewership has continued to improve over time with great word of mouth.

In a tweet responding to a fan, Star Wars actor Sam Witwer offered his support for a new fan theory. Check out Sam Witwer’s tweet about the fan theory below:

The theory, as laid out by the Twitter user, says that Witwer’s stormtrooper cameo character in Andor is the one responsible for the eventual destruction of the first Death Star in Star Wars: A New Hope. In Andor, Witwer cameos as the stormtrooper on Niamos who wrongfully arrests Cassian (Diego Luna) due to suspicion that he was involved in an unrelated trooper chase. After Cassian gets arrested, he leads a prison revolution, returns to his home planet, and officially joins up with the Rebels, leading to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Sam Witwer has commented on many Star Wars theories in the past, so it’s no surprise that he had a take to give on the Death Star explosion theory. From a certain point of view, there’s a lot of truth to the theory, as Cassian’s arrest put him on the path to becoming a Rebel hero and eventually stealing the Death Star plans. Witwer’s stormtrooper kicked things into motion for Andor’s hero, but the actor’s presence has been felt throughout the Star Wars mainline saga films, spinoffs, live-action television series, animated projects, and video games.

Witwer’s portrayal of Galen Marek aka Starkiller in the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed game was his first foray into the franchise. He was brought in to play Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, Starkiller, and Witwer not only provided the voice but also the face, making it the only Star Wars character that actually resembles the actor. Witwer has also offered his voice-over talents to other Star Wars roles, with his most iconic being that of Darth Maul. Though Ray Park initially played the character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Park only had a couple of speaking lines. Witwer voiced the character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Witwer has made countless other voice and cameo appearances. In addition to the stormtrooper who arrests Cassian in Andor, Witwer has also voiced The Son during the Mortis arc in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Emperor Palpatine in video games and animated shows, and a long list of both credited and uncredited background voices throughout all genres of Star Wars media. In addition to being a standout performer, he has made his love for the IP very apparent over the years. Witwer’s involvement in Andor is just the most recent example of his work for the franchise, and even if he isn’t directly responsible for the Death Star’s explosion, his impact can be seen scattered throughout the Star Wars timeline.
