StarWars.com posted an interview with The Clone Wars voice actress Dawn-Lyen Gardner, the voice of Steela Gerrera. She speaks about getting the part, working with the cast, and being the character.
StarWars.com: At the same time, there is a sensitivity to Steela, in how she interacts with her brother, and her clear attraction to Lux. As an actor, how do you go about balancing those two sides to a character?
Dawn-Lyen Gardner: That is the part of the work that excites me the most. It’s why I chose to be an actor. Both parts exist in her and are totally true to her; one side is this strong, valiant, courageous woman, and the other is this vulnerable, sensitive, romantic girl. I think that’s human, and it’s what makes for great heroes — the two sides don’t cancel each other out, they inform each other. She is courageous enough to show her vulnerability, and yet compassionate enough to take action for her people.
