Esposito recently appeared at Fan Expo Denver 2021 and during his appearance did a nearly hour long sit down Q&A session.

During that Q&A session at around the 45:10 minute mark below he was asked, “In The Mandalorian who is your favorite co-worker to work with?”

Esposito responded, “My goodness. Okay so you’re asking me for one. Yeah. I have to say and this may be… Well, okay, I’ll say it without hesitation. Gina Carano.”

He continued, “She went through a lot the last year and I’m not going to weigh in on any of that in particular other than any of her political beliefs or what she said whether I think it’s inappropriate or appropriate or not.”

“Right, we as actors, yeah, we probably sometimes, I know for me, I should just shut my mouth, but sometimes I can’t and I’ve got to say what I believe because it has to go on record,” the Moff Gideon actor said.

“I loved working with her. She’s warm, and beautiful, and wonderful. And I don’t care what her politics are. I love the fact that she came to acting late and that she was so raw and original and beautiful. And I just think she’s a lovely person. So I shout her out and I say she’s one of my favorites,” he concluded.

In response to these comments, Carano responded on Twitter writing, “I think the world of you too, Giancarlo Esposito. You make the world a better place.”

She added, “Love to see you shine. One of the best actors and people I’ve ever stood across from. #MoffGideon.”
