INTERVIEW: Kyle Soller Explains a Bit of Syril’s Journey to the Empire in Disney+’s ‘Andor’

Kyle Soller as Imperial Officer in Andor

Disney+’s Andor is an exciting new addition into the world of Star Wars for multiple reasons. Not only is it the return of Diego Luna as Cassian Andor but, much like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story did in bringing us brand new characters, the series is doing the same. In the show, there is an Imperial officer by the name of Syril (played by Kyle Soller) and it is truly one of the most brilliant takes on an Imperial officer because he’s brash, fights with those beneath him, and is definitely leading the kind of team that embodies the, uh, less than great versions of the Empire. (Meaning these guys are akin to the Stormtroopers who ran into a door in the original trilogy.)

With Syril, we can see his frustration with who he is working with. The best way I can describe him without giving anything away is that he’s sassy. He’ll snap, he yells, and he’s not afraid to make it clear that he’s not happy. So I wanted to know how much of that comes from what was already created with the character in Tony Gilroy’s scripts and how much was Soller’s interpretation of the character.
