Cassian Andor is a character from the Star Wars universe who appears in the movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He is an intelligence officer for the Rebel Alliance and is tasked with finding a way to steal the plans for the Death Star, a powerful weapon of the Galactic Empire.
Andor is portrayed as a capable and cunning spy, willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his objectives. He has a complex and troubled past, having been involved in the Rebel Alliance for many years and having had to make difficult choices in the past.
Andor is played by Mexican actor Diego Luna, who brings a sense of intensity and depth to the character. Luna has said in interviews that he wanted to portray Andor as a flawed and human character, rather than a heroic archetype.
Throughout Rogue One, Andor forms a close bond with fellow Rebel Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones. Their relationship is fraught with tension and mistrust at first, but they eventually come to rely on each other as they work together to steal the Death Star plans.
Andor meets a tragic end in the movie, sacrificing himself to ensure that the Rebel Alliance is able to get the plans for the Death Star to Princess Leia, who will later use them to help destroy the weapon.
Despite only appearing in one movie, Cassian Andor has become a beloved character in the Star Wars universe, with fans admiring his bravery, intelligence, and complex backstory.
