    Gina Carano feared she'd look like a "big buff refrigerator" in 'The Mandalorian'

    The 37-year-old actress - who plays Cara Dune in the new space Western TV series - has revealed she initially worried she'd have to compromise her femininity in order to convey the toughness of the character

    Reflecting on the physical transformation she went through, Gina shared: "How do you put basically football padding on a busty curvy female?

    "I didn't want to be a block. I didn't want to just be this like big buff refrigerator."

    Gina also feels as though she can relate to her on-screen character.

    She told Vanity Fair magazine: "This diamond, this cool character ... I have so much in common with her."

    What's more, the actress revealed she didn't initially appreciate the size and importance of her role in the series.

    She said: "I thought I was going to be like the female Chewbacca.

    "I was ready to put on the fur outfit and be the female version of that. That's what I thought.

    "I was surprised to find that I was one of the few people that you were actually going to see her face - and in a lot of scenes, sometimes the only face, which is pretty incredible."

    Meanwhile, Gina recently revealed that she has been told off for talking too much about 'The Mandalorian'.

    The actress - who previously starred in 'Deadpool' - admitted she got "the whip" for discussing the 'Star Wars' spin-off series.

    When asked about keeping the plot under wraps, Gina explained: "It's been so mysterious. We really can't even say that much. I think I've gotten the whip twice for talking about the show."
