Actress Bryce Dallas Howard has made a name for herself as a director.

Daughter of great filmmaker Ron Howard, it’s no surprise that Bryce Dallas Howard feels just as comfortable behind the camera as she does in front of it!

She has directed two episodes of the “Star Wars” Disney+ live-action series “The Mandalorian.” She directed “Sanctuary” in season 1 and “The Heiress” in season 2.

She also directed last night’s episode of “The Book of Boba Fett,” starring Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand. However, Boba Fett was nowhere to be found in the latest chapter of his own book.

Instead, the story focused on the titular Mandalorian himself, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), Mandalorian culture, and his arrival on Tatooine.
