Luke Skywalker's Body Double Has A Cameo In The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 5

This article contains spoilers for the new episode of "The Book of Boba Fett."

This week's episode of "The Book of Boba Fett" featured the massive return of a major player to a galaxy far, far away. Since his introduction in "The Mandalorian," the fan-favorite character has stirred up many emotions alongside Pedro Pascal's titular bounty hunter with a heart of gold. And just as quickly as he entered our lives through Jon Favreau's acclaimed live-action "Star Wars" series, he flew away on an X-wing towards more adventures.

Of course, we're talking about Captain Carson Teva, the New Republic officer played by "Kim's Convenience" star Paul Sun-Hyung Lee. Yes, Din Djarin was also heavily featured in the latest chapter of Boba Fett's trials and tribulations as the Daimyo of Jubba the Hutt's former territory, but who isn't ecstatic to see Space Appa again?

Since first running into Mando while patrolling the Outer Rim, Captain Teva has been quite busy. He's been keeping tabs on the Razor Crest since that encounter and he even found himself face to face with Cara Dune on Nevarro during his travels. But now the former Rebel Alliance member has crossed paths with Djarin again, this time on Tatooine. And on this particular occasion, Teva has a familiar face with him. Or more appropriately, he has a familiar body with him.

No One's Ever Really Gone

In "Chapter 5: The Return of the Mandalorian," Peli Moto (Amy Sedaris) calls Din Djarin back to Mos Eisley because she found a suitable replacement for the Razor Crest, which was blown to pieces. When Mando takes his new tricked out ride on a test run, the vintage Naboo ship gets pulled over by a pair of New Republic starfighters for speeding too closely to a commercial space craft. This duo is comprised of Captain Teva and Lieutenant Reed, who question the new wielder of the Darksaber about his activities on Nevarro. Before they could get an answer, the supped up starfighter suddenly speeds off at sub-lightspeed, proving that Mando's upgrade from essentially a space minivan to a space sports car was a good choice.

While we know all about Teva, Reed is played by Max Lloyd-Jones. When you see his face in the cockpit, you might recognize him from "Switched At Birth" or "When Calls The Heart." However, "Star Wars" fans are likely more familiar with his body than his body of work. That's because Lloyd-Jones was the body double for Luke Skywalker in the second season episode of "The Mandalorian" titled "Chapter 16: The Rescue."

I'm sure that the British actor was super grateful for the opportunity to be associated with "Star Wars" in any capacity, especially when that connection attaches him to arguably the biggest name in the entire franchise. But it must've been a bummer to know that he was in the "Star Wars" universe without technically being in the "Star Wars" universe. But now thanks to "The Book of Boba Fett," that bummer no longer exists and generations of fans can go back through these historical documents and see his face right there with Pascal's Mandalorian and the true star of this episode, Captain Carson Teva.
