Star Wars Star: Moses Ingram from Obi-Wan Kenobi

Star Wars Star: Moses Ingram from Obi-Wan Kenobi

Moses Ingram plays the determined and deadly Inquisitor, Reva, who is charged with the task of hunting down Jedi by the Empire.

KZ: Hi Moses! Were you a Star Wars fan before Obi-Wan Kenobi?

M: You know, I have to be honest, before this I was not the biggest Star Wars fan. I didn't know much about Star Wars, aside from the obvious – like Darth Vader and Obi-Wan, cause culturally they sort of live with us. It wasn't until I got cast that I started to really learn about Star Wars.

KZ: You’re playing an Inquisitor in the universe, which is a role that involves tracking down the Jedi. How did it feel playing this role?

M: Hmm. You know, it's interesting. Someone actually asked me some really tough questions earlier about what the Jedi hunters are doing. Rounding people up, moving them out, coming in with the idea of ‘I'm here to help’ but no one feels helped. It is reminiscent of things going on in the world today. When you put it in real world perspective, it is really dark.

KZ: Do you think Reva considers her job to be good or bad?

M: The thing is, she doesn't believe that she's evil. She just believes she's doing what she's supposed to be doing. Everybody’s a villain in somebody’s story. It's kind of a part of the balance of things. Also secretly, it’s kind of fun to be bad in a role like this. Telling the story in a way where it's not about being bad, but what it is that you're trying to do. If it becomes all about being bad, then you don't really tell the story efficiently. I think it's playing up the belief is what does the most for her humanity – I hope!

KZ: There are so many amazing characters in Star Wars. How did you feel about bringing Reva into it?

M: I actually didn't feel very intimidated by it. I definitely went in understanding the gravity of it, you know how big it is and what it means to so many people. I feel like if I'd let myself get so wrapped up in what it was or what it all meant, I wouldn't have been able to efficiently do my job. The job comes first or you can't be excited about anything else.

KZ: Did playing Reva help you discover traits within yourself?

M: How keen she is to keep going, even when it doesn't make sense to anyone else – her perseverance – I think that's something we share as I've watched back. You know, she keeps going all the time, always finding another way in when it looks like there aren't any.

KZ: Did you get to take anything home?

M: My saber. They did give me the hilt of my saber.

KZ: What was it like working with Ewan in the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the famous Jedi Master?

M: Really great. He's really gracious. He's been doing this for such a long time and has been available as a resource to make this as easy as possible. Really being a leader on the set in terms, of how you want to be and what kind of set that we have.

KZ: What were your favourite moments working on the series?

M: There were a couple; my first time putting on the costume, my first time actually stepping foot on set, and then working with so many wonderful people. I had a great time with our extended cast and our crew too, it really was a great group to be in.

KZ: What was the hardest part of filming Obi-Wan Kenobi?

M: Training was probably the biggest challenge, just because there was so much that had to be done. Sometimes you can get to a point where you're like, I don't know if I can do it anymore, but you look over and Ewan's in one corner and Hayden's in the other corner and you want to work as hard as they are. At the end of the day, we are making Star Wars, and then your brain goes, ‘What?’ like a complete reset.

KZ: How do you feel in the lead up to the series premiering?

M: I don't know. I guess I try to take it day by day. I think the closer we get, the more reality comes. At the beginning, it was very easy to throw myself into the work. At this point, the work is done now. There’s nothing to hide behind in terms of thinking about. So it's a little daunting, but also exciting that people are going to finally going to get to see it and form their own opinions. I'm really excited to find out what people think.
