StarWars.com contributor Amy Richau recently interviewed Sharmila Devar about her acting career and her experience voicing Ursa Wren in Star Wars Rebels.
Ursa made her first appearance in the season three episode “Legacy of Mandalore” and she was first referenced in “The Protector of Concord Dawn,” where fans discovered that she was part of Death Watch, a Mandalorian splinter group led by Pre Vizsla during the Clone Wars.
“Ursa Wren is a powerful, sometimes cold, warrior queen,” Devar said in the interview. “For Mandalore, she would sacrifice her life. She loves her children but struggles with her role as a mother. When you are a person who is always rigid and in control, it is difficult to accept those who defy you. Especially when they are your blood. Especially a rebel like Sabine. I always felt like that was her central conflict – love and pride for her wild daughter vs. love and duty for her country & traditions.”
