Since 2020, Mercedes Mone (Mercedes Vernado) has portrayed Koska Reeves in The Mandalorian.
Reeves is one of the two Mandalorian warriors working for Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff). Koska is a member of the Nite Owls, a band of female Mandalorian warriors led by Bo-Katan, who then become part of the Mandalore resistance.
Appearing at Megacon alongside Sackhoff, Mone was asked about portraying a strong female character.
"I really took a lot of myself and turned it up. I took a lot of my wrestling character, being a boss and a badass, and didn't take no for an answer and that could stand up to any man that wanted to step in her way and take him down and throw a tornado DDT. I wanted her to be who I am, just a badass and going in there with Katee, I had to step up my game because she is a legit badass," said Mone.
In the season one finale, Mercedes hit a tornado DDT. You can find her comments regarding the spot by clicking here.
