Kanata’s Castle #30: “Doing Talking” With “The Hera!” Ms. Vanessa Marshall

by Kanata's Castle

Kanata’s Castle is “doing talking” with Vanessa Marshall, the voice of Hera Syndulla from Star Wars Rebels! Today, Devon and Becca have opened up the castle gates and did a little housecleaning. After all, it’s not every day a war hero stops by to visit Maz’s Castle. Not just any hero either. We’re talking an expert pilot, an expert in combat, and an expert markswoman too. Captain of the Ghost and a general from the Galactic Civil War. Captain Hera Syndulla!

In this episode, Becca, and Devon welcome special guest Vanessa Marshall to the castle. The hosts find themselves in Rose’s situation, “doing talking” with “The Hera.” Yeah, it’s a bit surreal, but Maz’s hosts fly casual and talk their way through it just like Han. Yes, they do! Every time!
