The Mandalorian star Gina Carano has revealed she passed out twice while filming a scene where she was choked by Baby Yoda in the hit Star Wars TV show.

The 37-year-old actress (and former mixed martial arts fighter) plays CaraSynthia “Cara” Dune of Alderaan in the Disney + series – which has been a hit with Star Wars fans.

In season one, a bounty hunter is tasked with protecting a 50-year-old baby that is of the same species as iconic Star Wars character, Yoda.

And over the course of the first eight episodes, viewers see the tiny green alien begin to experiment with it’s ‘Force’ powers – using telekinesis to lift huge objects and healing mortal wounds.

Towards the end of season one, Gina’s character (who is a friend and ally to the baby and his protector) engages in an arm wrestle with Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian character Din Djarin – prompting Baby Yoda to use lethal force against Cara after mistaking her for attacking his protector.

Cara is then seen choking and clutching her own throat until Din realises the baby is telekinetically attacking her and intervenes to stop him.

During an impromptu Q&A, Gina revealed she went slightly too method while playing the scene.

“How was it learning you would be Yoda’s first force victim?” a fan asked the actress.

“I’m going to tell you something just between us. I legitimately passed out twice while shooting that scene. So.. ya.. it was pretty great,” Gina replied.

“That little ones force choke is no joke,” she added.
