The first two episodes of Disney+’s Star Wars: The Mandalorian were released this week and they followed Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, who travels the outer reaches of the lawless galaxy, surviving as a mercenary-for-hire. The series also had its premiere event on Wednesday and many of the show’s cast and crew were in attendance. One big name to show up to the event was Bryce Dallas Howard, the actor best known for playing Claire Dearing in Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. In the case of The Mandalorian, Howard stepped behind the camera to helm one of the first season’s eight episodes. Howard recently took to Instagram to share photos from the premiere and talk about her experience with the show.
