Gina Carano is setting the record straight on her relationship with former co-star Pedro Pascal following her firing from The Mandalorian.

Earlier this year, she notably filed a lawsuit against Disney and Lucasfilm for discrimination and wrongful termination regarding her firing from the Star Wars series.

She is seeking compensatory damages and a court order that would make Lucasfilm recast her on the show. X owner Elon Musk is also backing the lawsuit and shouldering the legal bills.

In a recent interview, Carano addressed her relationship with Pascal in the aftermath of her firing from The Mandalorian.

She debunked the rumors that they have a strained relationship and clarified that they are still keeping in touch, especially after the passing of their late co-star Carl Weathers.

"Everybody I worked physically with, I never had a problem with. Me and Pedro [Pascal] reconnected after Carl Weathers passed away," she explained.

"There's all these lies, and all these weird stories that people make up in their heads. One thing I can say is I adore Pedro, and he said one thing to me. He said, 'You and Carl were protectors.'"

Carano added, "And that means so much to me that he remembers me and our time together as me being a protector, and it's important that people don't know what the real story is."

"Like, why do you think Pedro is calling me a protector? To his fans, I want [them to know] there's a reason, and there's stories you don't know that happened. And I was there, and I protect people."

Recently, Disney filed a motion to dismiss the actress' lawsuit as they argued that it should be tossed out "on the grounds that Disney has a constitutional right not to associate its artistic expression with Carano’s speech, such that the First Amendment provides a complete defense to Carano’s claims."

The actress hits back in her social media post where she said that the company's recent move showed that "they will fire you if you say anything they disagree with" and argued that the First Amendment does not allow the company to "wantonly discriminate."
